Our Full Collection:
Did you know that 85% of the global population can not find their shade in products labelled as "nude?"-- think foundation, lipstick lingerie, and yes, even footwear.
I am Jeneba Barrie, Founder of Jeneba Barrie Nude Footwear. During the day I am an attorney and at night I become obsessed with creating the most diverse and inclusive luxury nude (skin-tone) footwear line on the market. We currently have 13 nude (skin-tone) shades in our collection--the most on the market--and we are just getting started. For far too long the market has had a very restrictive and narrow definition of "nude"--one or two shades of beige. We all know that when it comes to nude shoes, like foundation, one or two shades are not enough.
Our line was created with the objective of fixing this problem. Our product affords everyday women true nude versatility with pumps that can be worn from the boardroom to happy hour and even running errands around town.
Why Nude or Skintone?
A good pair of nude shoes gives the wearer a seamless look, it elongates the legs and it is versatile, as you can wear it with anything in your closet. Our line guarantees leg lengthening nudes.

Our Humble Beginnings
The idea for creating Jeneba Barrie Nude Footwear started almost 8 years ago at a family member's graduation in 2011. My sister and I were thrilled about our identical pair of nude pumps, both of which were the same beige color. The "nude" pumps did not match neither of our skin-tones. At that moment a light came on in my head. I started asking myself questions like, "why are they called nude?" "Why aren't there shades for all skin tones available?" At that moment, my journey began.
