We've reported at great length on the popularity of Stuart Weitzman's Nudist Sandals, and it seems just about every major It girl from Kendall Jenner to Diane Kruger steps out regularly in the simple yet statement-making silhouette. Well, our friends at Fashionista couldn't agree more, and took a deep dive into the shoes’ power in the celeb world.
The site tapped celebrity stylists to get the scoop on why these specific sandals make the red carpet and street style rounds so frequently. "They make the leg look very long, they don't distract from the look, they're comfortable, they're delicate, they're feminine, they're wearable," said Jeanann Williams, who styles actresses like Naomi Watts and Kathryn Hahn. Furthermore, they always prove to be a great compliment to an outfit. "We call it the 'Giving Sandal,'" said Kara Smith, who styles Emma Roberts with her sister, Brit Smith. "It allows the outfit to do most of the talking." We couldn't agree more—that's certainly why we love it. Stuart himself claimed he designed the shoes specifically to go with everything. As Fashionista goes on to explain, Nudist Sandals really have reached classic status, and it's for all the above reasons.
