We aren’t all lucky enough to be born with the long legs of a runway model, but even the most vertically challenged among us can fake long, lovely gams by simply adding a pair of nude pumps. They blend, rather than distract, creating a long lean line that seems to go on for days. We found eco friendly and vegan pumps in various styles and shades of nude that will give you a leg up on those days when you want to stand head and shoulders above the rest.
