The Real Reason Celebrities Are Obsessed With These Heels
Much like an LBD, we all have a trusty pair of neutral sandals in our closet that go with just about anything. In Hollywood, this understated shoe of choice for celebs is Stuart Weitzman's Nudist sandal. In an interview with InStyle, the designer recalls how long it took for his team to perfect such a simple style. "It's the longest I've ever spent on a shoe," Weitzman says of the five-month process. Weitzman and co. had to figure out a way to ensure that a minimalist pair of sandals could be not just chic, but functional with only two straps. The solution was unlikely but served its purpose. They used titanium to produce a heel that was so strong it would feel like "walking with an invisible wedge under your foot," according to the designer. It's no wonder fashion devotees found footwear's version of an LBD in these soon-to-be classics. And if these stylish celebs are any indication, the Nudist sandals are here to stay.
