With the recent June 28 release of Christian Louboutin’s special nude capsule collection, FN is taking a look at some of the styles from the label’s multihued line, as well as other brands that offer a great range of nude selections for darker skin tones.

First off, encrusted with a Swarovski crystal dégradé, these Louboutin ankle strap pumps make the perfect party shoe.

Also trying to bring a wider range of nude colorways to the fashion world is shoe brand Kahmune.

“I was in search of items that matched my dark skin tone, but all I kept coming across were the same beige, cream and tan shades,” Jamela Acheampong told Elle this year on why she started Kahmune.  “It was overtly clear that ‘nude’ had a type.”

Enter: Kahmune’s leather ankle strap sandal — perfectly simple and chic.
