Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandal. Classic shoes 101.

Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandal. Classic shoes 101.

It’s hard to keep up in the fashion world as trends come and go, but once in a while one of the classics will resurface on the latest “IT” girl and suddenly there’s a big revival. One of the latest classics to return is the single strap stiletto. This shoe has been around for the last couple of decades - making a big run in the 90s.

Stuart Weitzman, a grand-daddy of American footwear if there ever was one, has brought the iconic silhouette back to life with its latest Nudist Sandal. Seen on models-of-the-moment and BFFs Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, the style’s claim to fame is that they automatically elongate the legs. The stilettos are minimal in design, with nothing impeding the eye except an appreciation for the gams.

You can either splurge - in USD no less (ouch for us Canadians) for a pair of these babies (US$425) or opt for one of the less pricey but equally stunning versions below:
