Meet Your New Best Friend This Summer: The Nothing Shoe

Meet the “nothing shoe”: It’s the barely there, Perspex or Lucite and ecru-tone piece of minimalist footwear making rounds this summer, like the recently arrived (and hotly anticipated) Kim Kardashian West–beloved Yeezy Lucite heel, a no-frills number with a 4.5-inch heel and a $595 price tag—which sounds extreme until you hear that it is sold out.

Despite its nickname, the nothing shoe has been quite something on the runways; at Nina Ricci’s Spring 2016 show, ornament-less incarnations like an open-toe mule strode down the catwalk; Victoria Beckham debuted a simple white slipper; and Simone Rocha premiered some slick slides—all a far cry from the high-octane, more-is-more footwear statements of Gucci’s spike-studded heels or Dolce & Gabbana’s gilded block heels. So why all the love for this low-key cameo? “It’s versatile, sexy, and effortless,” says Vogue.com Accessories Editor Brooke Ely Danielson. “It leaves little to the imagination.” And you know what they say, sometimes less is more.
