NSFW is an e-commerce store of comfortable nude heels that range in six skin tones for women of color. NSFW aims to fill in this gap by providing fashionable work heels for the professional women of color by selling shoes online that are convenient, consistent and authentic. NSFW shoes’s values are leadership, love, appreciation of beauty & excellence, bravery, perseverance, fairness, thoughtfulness and honesty.
Too many women of color the term “Nude Heel” usually refers specifically to those of a more fair shade of skin. Due to the absence of representation for women of color, House No. 3028’s founder Thressa Pine-Smith strategically developed a product that would not only cater exclusively to women of color in multiple shades of brown but also create a sense of comfort and pride in embracing one’s beauty & individuality. House No. 3028 provides 2″ & 3″ nude pumps.
THE NU PUMP
The Nu 2” and The Nu 3” pump comes in 6 colors that match the shades of any natural skin tone. There’s nothing you can’t wear with Nu pumps. From jeans and a t-shirt, to your business suit, to your evening gown. The Nu Pump goes with anything and everything. All NSFW Nu pumps are constructed with extra memory foam padding so you can wear them all day (and night) and not have to worry about leaving the club with your shoes in your hand.
Thressa Valinteen (Project creator) was born and raised in Oakland, California. Thressa says “I studied fashion at the Art Institute of San Francisco, and have nine years of experienced deep in the fashion world from personal styling to head buyer at a company. As a new company, we are exploring different shoe options from the classic work pump, to the gladiator sandal. The ultimate goal of House No. 3028 is to be able to provide an all-inclusive brand of nude shoe line from women of color, in extended sizes.”
Thressa Valinteen has started a crowdfunding campaign with a goal of raising $3,500. The fund raised will be used to produce the first run of shoes.
