Not Your Normal Nude Shoes from Rachel Roy

Nude shoes are godsend. Once you find a pair that perfectly matches your skin tone, they go with absolutely everything, plus they have the added ability of making your legs look longer.

Nude shoes are now considered basic wardrobe staples, but it’s gotten to the point that they’re now just too basic. We want to keep this ingenious shoe style from becoming a triple B — bland, basic, and boring — and, thankfully, NY-based designer Rachel Roy also thinks the same way.

Rachel Roy’s nude shoes are not your normal nude shoes. They may sport the color, but these aren’t nude shoes that Carrie Bradshaw would call “beige”.

To start off, Rachel Roy does have the kind of go-to nude pumps that celebrities seem to love to wear when their dresses are of a color other than black. The pumps are simple, but the gleaming patent leather and pointed toes keep things from being too plain:

Things quickly escalate — Rachel Roy wasted no time in chopping off the pointed toes and adding gold metal accents where appropriate:

The nude color must have overwhelmed her at this point because she had to use a different color stat:

Even her nude wedges aren’t left as is. They have to have cutout shapes layered in front to make them even more interesting:

These nude sandals didn’t stand a chance. Not only are they different shades of nude, but they also have canvas panels, woven heels, and snakeskin:

After sticking crystals, rhinestones, gems, and gold pyramid studs on these sandals, Rachel Roy can call it a day:
