Nude Heels for Every Skin Tone: 12 Hot Pair

Monday, August 01, 2011 • Permalink • 

It's no secret that nude heels are a closet staple. Pair a nude heel with your favorite skirt or dress and suddenly your legs look a mile long. It's a well known trick of starlets and other enviable fashion types -- even Kate Middleton's nude pumps have been a headline. But, the very mention of nude pumps begs the question: who's version of nude are we talking about?

Just like other supposedly "nude" necessities -- Band-Aids and bras spring to mind -- nude shoes can look anything but if your skin tone deviates from what the company in question has decided is flesh toned. But, some companies are wising up and creating new nudes in a range of shades... it just takes some looking. So, if you are in the market for a new, leg-lengthening shoe that actually approximates your skin color, check out these hot finds.
