The sole purpose of "nude" shoes is to give the illusion that you are not wearing any shoes or to at least let the shoe blend in with your legs so that the upper portion of your ensemble will stand out and even elongate your legs. It has always baffled me why some women insist on wearing "nude" shoes that do not match their skin tone. (If it wasn't created with you in mind, don't buy it.) That could mostly be due to the fact that many shoe manufacturers have not created "nude" shoes in a variety of tones. In 2013, Christian Louboutin launched its "Nudes Collection" that filled the void that so many left open in the shoe industry. 

From Christian Louboutin:

This month, the Nudes relaunch with four new silhouettes, two core– Iriza and So Kate – and, for the very first time, two seasonal styles, Deepik and Dorissima.

The transformation of the Nudes Collection exemplifies Christian Louboutin’s design process. “I’ve always done a Nude shoe but only using the colour beige,” he recalls. However, it was the blunt statement, “beige is not the colour of my skin,” echoed by a team member that prompted him to transform Nudes from a colour to a concept.

“I have clients from every continent and want to make them happy!” Christian said. So, using his studio team as guinea pigs, Christian created five different hues inspired by their skin tones. A year later, the Nudes were best sellers around the world.
