I've never worn nude shoes, I just don't like them. Plus every version of nude looks orange toned against my skin, I'm very very very pale and I just don't want to look like my feet are wearing wotsits!
I have a pair of nude high heels I love wearing for nights out. With slim black trousers and any kind of top, they just look feminine and glam IMO. And for weddings - I know it's a bit cliche but they do just look right for weddings with a nice dress.
Not stripper heel ones though - mine are LK Bennett and fairly tasteful.
For a start, 'nude' is a misnomer since beige is not nude on all skin tones, though I believe some brands do them in a range of shades? They only make your legs look longer if they match your skintone, most people are better off going with black opaques with black shoes.
Nude for me is taupe as I'm pale and pinky nudes simply don't work. I've found the rule of thumb is that when going for nude, you should pick a shade a bit paler than your skin tone. This way it flatters your skin tone even if you are pale. Tan shoes + winter skin = urgh
Nude shoes are very versatile if you are travelling and it's summer, but I find them a bit dull. I prefer other colors - color, white, metallic - in the summer and dark tones in winter.
