The low top sneakers are generously padded around the ankle to provide a cozy entry and a plush, secure fit. The Reebok CL Leather Nude NBK is also known to run true to size. Women can avail of a pair starting with size 5 to 11 which are all constructed in B medium width.

The best way to perfectly showcase the Reebok Classic Leather Nude NBK is to partner it with clothes that show more skin. This apparel which include shorts, sundresses, and Capri pants which extends the length of the legs are perfect for short women. Sporting these with jeans and leggings would also suffice.

These Reebok Classic Leather Nude NBK sneakers showcase a full nude tonal look except for the EVA midsole which shines in white. The monochrome theme even embellishes the Reebok brandings as well as the laces.

The very instance of using “nude” as a color can be traced back to the use of the title flesh in Crayolas. Of course, the use of this insensitive term would spark controversy with the, excuse thee for the term, colored portion of the community. So what Crayola did in the midst of the Black Power Movement was to change the flesh term to “peach.”

The prevalence of the nude colors came about when Mrs. Obama flaunted a Naeem Khan “nude strapless gown,” and since then the media went nuts. The politically incorrect term had generated an unlikely good and bad publicity which boosted the then insulting pigment’s fame. Catwalks and home decor themes had been using it religiously, and there were no signs of stopping.

The infectious spread of the incoherent hue penetrated all sorts of enterprises which ended up in sneakers. Though sandals and women footwear use nude colors as a go-to staple style, sneakers were slightly late to join the bandwagon. Soon after, silhouettes from doll shoes to bulky dad sneakers embellished the tint with flying colors.

Reebok, having quite a reputation as a women pleaser in the eighties, would surely utilize the nude color in their sneaker designs. The Freestyle would be on top of the list followed by several iterations including the Aztec Runner (Reebok Aztec Nude NBK) and the Reebok Classic Leather Nude NBK.

For a smooth and organic look, the Reebok CL Leather Nude NBK chooses Nubuck as its au naturale element. The uppers are then splashed with the politically incorrect term of “nude” colors which even drenches the laces for a tonal look.

  • The uppers are composed of soft Nubuck leather for quality and support.
  • The tongue is made of satin to add a smooth gloss in the overall design.
  • The sockliners used are padded foam for optimal cushioning.
  • The colorway is technically named Rose Cloud/White.
