Going Nude

July 18, 2011

If you don’t already have a pair of nude shoes in your closet then I suggest you add them to your shopping list.

Don’t just take my word for it. Have you seen how much use the Duchess of Cambridge got out of her nude L.K. Bennett Sledge pumps on her recent visit to Canada? I’m sold!

I’ve pulled together some nude footwear options to inspire you. First up are classic (and affordable) heels:

L to R, T to B: Chinese Laundry, Aldo, Steve Madden, Debenhams, Nine West, Michael Antonio, Dorothy Perkins, Nine West

If designer shoes are more your thing then you might be interested in these:

L to R, T to B: Miu Miu, Michael Kors, Jimmy Choo, Giuseppe Zanotti, Christian Louboutin, Brian Atwood

Designers have also used a variety of textures and embellishments to the basic nude heel:

L to R, T to B: Jimmy Choo, Badgley Mischka, Sergio Rossi, Givenchy, Miu Miu, Badgley Mischka

If flats are more style, then you’re in luck. Nude options come in everything from ballet flats to strappy sandals to boat shoes:

T to B: Topshop, Lanvin, Repetto

L to R, T to B: Sandstorm, Twisted Soles, Dorothy Perkins, Report, Sam Edelman, Jessica Simpson

T to B: Jean-Michel Cazabat, TOMS, Sperry

So, what do you say? Are you going to give your feet the “royal treatment” with a pair of nude shoes?

    I adore nude footwear! They’re fantastic with absolutely any outfit, any look, day or evening. Truly a closet staple. I’m kind of surprised that we hadn’t featured nudes before on FIM!!! Thanks for this, we really needed it!

      Awesome! Thanks for the heads up, now we know where you’ve been ;).

      Looking forward to catching up with your foodielicious site, I’ve been swamped this summer but reading you in the Globe as per my usual. You’ll be delighted to hear that I recently acquired a vintage T-Fal raclette- it’s a beauty and I use it quite regularly (naturally).
