Readers have been mixed on the idea of “nude flats” before (fair!), but I wonder where “nude for me loafers” fit in the mix. We’re starting to see them for spring from various retailers, including Reiss.

For my $.02, I do like these loafers, although I think I prefer them more as a “very light brown” rather than a “nude beige,” if that makes sense — a neutral color but one that’s meant to be seen, not fade so as to make your legs look like they go forever. The black soles and gold hardware also help them from being “nude.”

The loafers are $265 at Nordstrom and Reiss (where you can also get it in black). (And: wow, do I hate the styling of the loafers at Reiss. Hems matter!)

As of 2024, some of our favorite loafers for work are from Sam Edelman, Everlane, and Madewell. If you want something more classic, readers love Sperry and Ferragamo; if you want comfort, Vionic and Dr. Scholl’s both have options. Meanwhile, if you want something a bit more feminine or slouchy, the Tory Burch loafers are all really highly rated at Nordstrom (especially this “ballet loafer“)! (Tory Burch also makes a “rain loafer” if you do a lot of commuting in wet weather!)
