"Nude" is not one-size-fits-all, but it's a look that everyone could use more of. Finding your perfect nude, whether that's a lip color or a classic high heel, is an incredibly rewarding experience, but it's one that less-than-effortless for many women of color.

Much like band-aids, many shoe brands limit their nude colors to ivory, beige and *maybe* a tan if we're lucky. But a skin-toned shoe is one of the quickest and chicest ways to making your legs look longer or finding a look to match whichever outfit you put on that day. 

A little more than a year ago, the designer brand released flats and multiple heels in an array of nude shades, and this year they have expanded their nude collection to even more styles. Instead of closed-toed accessories, customers can now invest in the Cherrysandal (a strappy heel that's super versatile) for and the Christeriva (a lace-around-the-ankle look good for more formal occasions).

And although Louboutins are not in everyone's budget, there's one stellar thing about such a well-known brand embracing all ranges of nude — it will encourage more brands to do the same. That's how fashion works, with major brands leading the charge and influencing what your favorite local boutiques keep in stock and what more accessible brands produce. So keep a look out for more diverse nudes among all footwear brands — it's about time.
