Default Nude Shoes are not for Black Women!!!

Okay..yeah right!

I was telling a co-worker of mine that I had recently bought some nude pumps...and I was planning on debuting them at my friend's wedding.

She gave me a weird look.... --->> all wrapped in one!

I asked why she got so put off. She told me that nude shoes and black people don't go!!

She said that nude shoes don't look right on Black people!!

She's black also...I couldn't believe she said that...

I will try and find pics...

I think this couldn't be any further from the truth...but it got me wondering..does anyone else feel this way???

um? Wth? I hate all these random restrictions we put on our selves! Who said nude pumps don't look good on us? They look good on Tyra right there. Hmph. Just like with anything else you gotta choose a color that works with and compliments your skin tone. Whatever to your coworker lol.

I think that we can wear nude - who wrote the imaginary rule that we can't - but more often than not, nude is a shade lighter than a lot of black people. In a sense, "HER nude is not MY nude."

So who is supposed to look good in nude shoes. White people with pale legs look HORRIBLE in them.

I think brown skin....or tanned white skin look the best in nude shoes. But it also depends on the shade of nude against the leg

I see nude shoes like nude lipstick/glosses: you have to find the right nude for you. I have yet to find a 'nude' pump but I'm still searching.

well you have to match up the shoes with your complexion.
maybe she's thinking of that light nude. my one pair are like the ones Tyra has on in that picture...but I got a bit tanner so now it's like awww....lol.
they look good but even in Cosmo mag they were matching nudes up by complexion and darker girls had on the darker "nude" shoes.

I'm confused.
I didn't even think 'nude' shoes had to match your skin.

^^^ Well, they don't have to, but it's the effect that we try to achieve.
For me, I want to elongate the leg.

Exactly. I think it looks best when the Nude DOESN'T match your skintone.
If anything, i think it's White women that look a bit odd in Nude colours!

  • Logically speaking if you took off all your cloths and put those shoes on they would clearly "stand out" so why do "WE" (blindly) adopt the term "Nude" to describe these?....
  • The color Nude is totally "subjective".I think the "Color" of these "Footwears" should be refered to "Taupe". Not Nude!
  • Nude may appear Nude on folks that lack melanine, but us's that got it should not go around stating that they are wearing "Nude" shoes.

I fell the same way when I read that so-in-so black actress had on "Nude" pumps and I look at the picture of this "ebony beauty" and "clearly" the shoes don't appear "Nude" on her. Looks like she has on tan/taupe pumps.
Bear with me. I grew up in the era when the crayon now referred to as "Peach" was called "Flesh"..... : ..as I remember stating to my mom that it doesn't look like my "Flesh".

Because if you wear a pair of Nude/Flesh coloured shoes for example, v. similar to your skintone - from afar it looks as though you're not wearing anything on your feet!

I've also seen photo's of a few White actresses wearing Nude coloured fitted dresses (very close to their skin colour) & at a glance, they almost look naked! Not a good look.

(I would tend to go with a "Nude" that's a good few shades lighter than my skin).
