Jeneba Barrie, the founder of Jeneba Barrie Footwear, a Black woman-owned diverse, and inclusive luxury skin-tone shoe line, is celebrating 3 years of business this August.
Jeneba originally launched in 2019 after running a successful Kickstarter campaign. The company is dedicated to redefining the meaning of “nude” shoes from one or two shades of beige to colors that actually match the wearer’s skin tone. The traditional definition of the nude has been restrictive. By redefining the meaning, the company is including segments of the population that have been overwhelmingly excluded — women of color.
The brand has since launched its Ama Loafer Collection and the Black Collection 2020, after its initial classic pump collection.

Jeneba Barrie is the most diverse and inclusive luxury skin-tone shoe line dedicated to redefining and revolutionizing the meaning of nude shoes from beige to skin-tone colors that match the wearer’s shade.

There are 13 shades and they range from the peachy tone of rosé all the way to the melanin enriched shade of cacao truffle.
