Holy Legs, Girl! 12 Neutral Heels To Make Your Gams Look Gorg

Ed Note: We heard you loud and clear, in the comments, and have broadened the range of skin-toned pumps and sandals to include a deeper variety of shades.
Whether you're equipped with legs for days or shorter-than-average stems, you're probably aware of the flattering effect of a great pair of nude heels. It's a tried-and-true style secret: Matching your shoes to your skin tone creates the illusion of longer, slimmer legs. And who doesn't want that?
So, since we happen to think every gal deserves to feel like Giselle every now and then, we've handpicked our favorite neutral kicks of the season, from stilettos to platform sandals and sturdy wedges. No matter your skin tone or your budget, we've got 12 pairs that'll make your gams look drop-dead gorgeous — click through to experience the life-changing (or, at least, leg-enhancing) power of the nude shoe.
