The ballet flat worth the splurge

It’s a little-known fashion fact that every woman's wardrobe should include a killer nude pump and flat. But, when it comes to nude colors, high-end brands leading the fashion industry have often overlooked women of color. What would be considered “nude” by industry's standards often looks a lot like biege for Black women. 

Louboutin is working to fill that void.

Leave it to ladies’ footwear aficionado Christian Louboutin to create the perfect nude ballet flat for all women of color.

Adding to his Nude collection, which debuted last spring, the Solasofia ballet flat is a pointed toe, soft leathered staple guaranteed to stick with you from high school to your best friend's wedding.

While you won’t drop the typical $595 for his fourth silhouette of the collection, you can expect to invest a little cash for the much-anticipated style.

With powerful women like Shiona Turini rocking the Pigalle Follies pump in last year’s campaign, it’s becoming clear that women of color are making brands understand how important we are as a consumer.

The Nude collection is composed of the Iriza pump, the Senora t-strap heel, the Piagelle Follies pump and now the Solasofia flat.

You can pre-order the Solasofia flat in your perfect shade on Christian Louboutin’s site.
