Reebok Classic Leather Nude NBK History
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.
