Naked shoes have been everywhere the past couple of years. And while you might assume that the chillier temps allow for a bit of a break from “yes, I can see your feet” shoe styles, let us assure you there’s more naked footwear to love right now. Enter: mesh shoes, aka the most elegant way to embrace the naked trend. The fabric isn’t necessarily flesh-colored (à la the Kate Middleton iteration) or plastic (which may have its comfort challenges). Instead, the mesh shoes that stand out to us come in bright colors and neutrals alike, and allow for tons of statement embellishments. Best of all, our favorites are as affordable as $35.
