Nude shoes are basically a wardrobe requirement. If you’re going for an elongated look, there’s no equal to a nude pump for tricking everyone into thinking you have endless legs. Celeb-favorite shoe designer Christian Louboutin agrees, and luckily he understands that nude isn’t one shade fits all.
For the famed shoe designer, “nude is not a color, it’s a concept,” which is exactly why in 2013 he launched an inclusive collection that aims to appeal to a seriously underserved diverse market. Now, he’s expanded the line even further, adding two new styles to its lineup that will have women of every skin tone cheering.
Just in time for all your summer soirees, the two recently released members of the Louboutin nude family are heeled sandals.
The first style, Cherrysandal ($895), is a more simplistic platform with a single leather strap over the toe and a matching ankle strap. A clear PVC slingback and chunky heel give the shoe a little extra stability (always helpful for dancing the night away at your next wedding).
In contrast, Christereva ($875) is a little more formal, with grosgrain ribbon straps that form a peep toe and a matching ribbon to tie around the ankle like an espadrille. The thin, 100mm heel and small bow detail near the peep toe give the shoe a much daintier feel.
Both styles come in all seven signature nude shades, which range from Lea Nue (a light peachy beige) to Toudou (a rich, deep, chocolate brown).
Rounding out the collection with the Solasofia pointed leather flats and the Degrarivierina d’Orsay pumps with Swarovski crystal detail that came before these, it’s now possible to have a nude shoe for every occasion.
We think they’re totally worth the splurge.
