Get ready for leg-baring season now, even if it’s from the comfort of your own home.
Now more than ever it’s the small things that count. The daffodils in the vase, the friend who checks in, a store cupboard supper for two, and the perfect pair of nude pumps that complete all of your lined up Spring outfits. What better way to distract yourself than with a self-indulgent scroll through our shoppable edit? We’re looking ahead to a time when you can wear our line-up of barely-there shoes out, but, whilst we’re weathering the storm indoors, a pair of nude shoes is the next best thing to no shoes at all, (except, perhaps, your slippers.) From the leg-elongating powers of A.W.A.K.E. Mode’s strappy sandals, to the hype-worthy allure of Bottega Veneta’s sand-coloured mules, these are the best nude shoes available to shop now, and wear later.
A classic nude pumps will give you the illusion of a leg that never ends, but it is also a style that never dates. Sophisticated and chic, they’re always elegant and guaranteed to go with most things in your closet. For now, we plan to wear our Jimmy Choo Romy 100s at home with very little else, in the spirit of a shoe that celebrates the beauty of our bodies as god intended. The master himself, Christian Louboutin once said “I have always been interested in the concept of nude . . . Not just as one colour but the various colours of skin. Nude elongates your leg and doesn’t take space away from your body. It is one thing about a shoe which is dedicated totally to the woman – it disappears completely and dissolves into your legs.”

Spring is in the air, and although most if us haven’t been outside for days, we’ve officially entered Spring time (if you, like us, have lost track of the days in the calendar). The sandals are coming out, even if it’s only for a stroll around the garden or to line them up in the wait for quarantine free days. In these times of uncertainty, we feel the urge to strip back all the unnecessary so barely there sandal is a thing of beauty. Give your toes some room to breathe in a mid-heel from cult label A.W.A.K.E. Mode, or amp up the volume (and your height) in Amina Muaddi’s beautiful, neutral platforms – both a style that we’ve rated high in the comfort department.
