Bees! I’m sorry if this is a double post-but I remember several months ago, there was discussion on here about how it’s harder for some of us darker/other skinned ladies to find appropriate nude colored shoes…basically how what is called “nude” is not skin colored for many of us…anyway, I saw that Christian Louboutin has released new shoes in several different “nudes.” That thread was my very first thought!

@luna_c: That’s awesome!
Personally though, I never understood why folks got so caught in the semantics of the word “nude.” I am white and nude is too dark for me – I essentially look the Casper the friendly ghost, so nude doesn’t work.
I would just buy shoes that matched my skin tone, regardless of what colour that was, and call it a day. Unless you’re saying it is challenging to find brown/tan/alternative colour shoes, but I never found that myself.

I had all of my bridesmaids wear “nude” shoes and one of my bridesmades has darker skin and it all still looked great!
They still were lighter than her leg (if you can’t tell she is bottom right) but she looked AMAZING!
Just wanted to share cause I loved it! 🙂

There are dozens of colors called nude. The whole idea of wearing nude is to lengthen the leg, so it
s great that there are more nude color options available.
Realistically, most of us aren’
t ever going to wear Lououtins!

That sounds fun! Not that I can afford Loubies… But maybe they’ll trickle down!

@luna_c: Such a good idea! I hope it does trickle down! It would be awesome for there to be more skintone options. It seems like shoes go from various shades of creme, to “nude” (which is generally too light for me), to straight out brown (which is too dark/brown for me). Yay!

Agreed, ladies, I know that Louboutins wouldn’t QUITE fit into my budget (or really even come close!) but I’m hoping that like lia said that other designers will take the cue and come up with some more inexpensive options.

@luna_c: Ha that thread was my first thought as well when I saw that article! Hopefully other (cheaper) designers follow suit!
