Christian Louboutin has launched a new assortment of heels to add to the brand’s signature red-bottom collection — and it is expected to transform looks from head to stiletto.

The Parisian designer has re-imagined the ‘nude’ shoe to better match the varying skin tones of high-heel admirers everywhere.

In a newly launched capsule collection, Louboutin has released the ‘nude’ shoe in five different variations from a fair blush to a rich chestnut, reports the Daily Mail.

The new designs were created to closely match customers’ skin tones and as a result, it will further elongate the legs.

“The shoes are there to give the woman an extra lift, not to take attention away from the legs and what she is wearing,” the designer said, according to Glamour. “They disappear like magic and become a fluid extension of her legs, as in a sketch, elongating the silhouette.”

To best decide which ‘nude’ color fits a customer’s foot best, the shoe maker has created a Louboutin Shades app which will recommend the color that best suits users based on photos they upload of their foot.

The latest collection is currently available in Christian Louboutin stores.
