As in 'a nude shoe'.

AIBU to think this is ridiculous fashionspeak and should have no place in normal conversation.

Let's be honest, it's beige, isn't it?

And why is it always 'a shoe'. Don't people wear both anymore?

You can charge £50 more for 'a nude shoe' than ' a pair of beige shoes.'

I completely agree. Being half Jamaican, I don't look 'nude' coloured when I'm nude. This whole fashion speak trend is very very racist and, as such, should be dispensed with post haste.

Whatever they name it, they are ugly fuckers.

Nude is much lighter than beige.

Same degree of difference between royal and navy blue.

^ That was sarcasm about the racist thing. I don't think it's racist, it just gets on my fucking nerves

It's the wanky 'fashion singular' innit.

A trouser.

A lip.

A shoe.

Fuck off you pretentious twunts.

Good point Million, although to be fair I don't think anyone's skin colour much resembles 'nude'. They need to invent a new shade called 'pasty with a hint of freckle' for mine.

million hadn't thought of it like that, I hate the term nude to describe a colour of something!

MarianForrester Mon 24-Sep-12 17:32:56

That's funny, was just about to post that nude point: in my case would be papery white with hint of grey- delightful smile

Do think the description is stupid

susiedaisy Mon 24-Sep-12 17:33:24

Pasty and blue veiny would be mine!!grin

Million - ditto flesh-coloured bras. Doesn't work for either me (v pale) or SIL (Jamaican) grin

It's probably to make it sound sexy. The Daily Mail's obsession with nude shoes has killed that notion stone dead though.

<snort> Sign me up for a pair of Pasty and Blue Veinies too :D

I've noticed the singular shoe/trouser a lot lately

Also 'colour way'

It's pretentious wankery
