Black-owned Skin-tone Footwear Line Officially Launches After Successful Crowdfunding Campaign


After successfully raising over $23K on Kickstarter, entrepreneur Jeneba Barrie has officially launched her line of diverse and inclusive luxury skin-tone (nude) shoes. The Jeneba Barrie Nude Footwear collection is dedicated to redefining the meaning of “nude” shoes from one or two shades of beige to colors that actually match the wearer’s skin-tone. The traditional definition of nude has been restrictive.

By redefining the meaning of nude, the company is including segments of the population that have been overwhelmingly excluded – women of color. The debut style is the classic pointed toe stiletto and it is available in both nappa leather and suede finishes.

There are 3 heel lengths available, 4.1 inches for a night out, 3.5 inches for the boardroom and 2 inches for those with back, knee and ankle ailments. The company also has available for pre-order its first flat style, the Ama Loafers.

Customers can purchase a shade book to ensure that they receive their perfect nude pumps. The shoes are made in Italy with Italian leather. Customers enjoy free shipping, returns & exchanges, plus $25.00 towards their first purchase with email sign-up. Customers can also select the Klarna option at checkout for 4 equal fee-free, interest-free payment plan installments.

Gift Cards are also available and they make the perfect holiday gift. Jeneba Barrie is the most diverse and inclusive luxury skin-tone shoe line dedicated to redefining and revolutionizing the meaning of nude shoes from beige to skin-tone colors that match the wearer’s shade. The company was founded in 2018 by its namesake, Jeneba Barrie, who is an attorney by trade.

There are 13 shades of nude and they range from the peachy tone of rosé all the way to the melanin enriched shade of cacao truffle. The #ultimatenudepumps have arrived with Jeneba Barrie – nude footwear that is true to hue. For more details and/or to make a purchase, visit
