As a budding Imelda Marcos, your shoe collection’s value depends on four factors: 1) price, 2) versatility, 3) comfort, and 4) celebrity support. At last week’s Oscars, Jennifer Aniston (pictured above) wore a custom-dyed Stuart Weitzman Nudist sandal. She was just one of nearly ten celebs to wear the wildly popular style, joining stars like Marisa Tomei, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, and Brooklyn Decker. So it makes me wonder, what is it about this super-simple, single strap sandal that has Hollywood celebrities obsess so hard?
According to LA Racked, “the shoe was first released for resort 2013 in only two colors: Black Goose Bump Nappa (or simply black) and Pan Goose Bump Nappa (or simply nude). Diana Kruger was the very first celebrity to wear the style, which ignited the craze and inspired Weitzman to release it in a range of additional colors. Although celebs often get their Nudists custom-dyed, the general population is pretty satisfied with the label’s available shades. They’re also not mad at the reasonable heel and rather-affordable price (retail price $398-$480) compared to the similarly simplistic Manolo Blahnik Chaos sandal ($725).”
So it is popular in Hollywood celebrities because of its price, versatility, celebrity support and probably comfort -which are all the factors of an it-shoe that I mentioned above. But did you know that for only $74-110 you can get a similarly simplistic look? Below are affordable Nudist Sandal:
