Women everywhere know how real the struggle is when it comes to finding clothing in that ever elusive “nude” skin-tone color. From hosiery and lingerie to shoes, unless made by other people of color, brown-skinned girls are not likely to find designers making nude in anything other than beige or tan. And it’s not just a brown girl thing, our pale-skinned friends are just as irritated.

So, we were absolutely thrilled when our favorite red bottom designer Christian Louboutin expanded his nudes collection last year to offer seven different skin-tone shades for all complexions – from porcelain to deep chocolate. We were even more excited when they introduced a new line of flats this week that set social media ablaze
The Solasofia ballerina flat is officially here and features a soft nappa leather designed to mimic the feeling of skin. It joins two other shoes in the nudes collection — the Pigalle Goillies 100 pump and Senora 100 peekaboo heel.
While the flat is on the luxe side, retailing at $595, we’re hoping all the media attention it has received will inspire more affordable brands to jump on the wagon, too. Because, well, all of our nudes are beautiful.
