I think its for folks who have centrally heated everything everwhere but want to be down with the folks on the pavement. So … tra-la-la look at my lovely pedicure – of course I don’t go outdoors with the peasants – but look at my interpretation of winter footwear. Its a bit like the platform wedge hiking boots that were so vogueish 5 minutes ago – what was that about? As to the inbuilt sock/legwarmer – I don’t know – I’m imagining them with fence paint orange legs stuck in there. Looking like someone being inhaled by an elephant trunk.
I can’t explain. This pair is simply a case of bad design; all the fads/trends used in one shoe/boot/sock thingy.
I like some open toe boots but only if they’re short and have other openings such as shoe lacing or cut-outs. They’re best worn in warmer weather.
Hahaha shoes with built in leg warmers are the worst, I can’t even explain how much they revolt me. Paired with an open toe it’s so much worse and makes NO sense! The look of wearing thick socks with the ends cut off so everyone can see your manicure, it’s so silly…what kind of weather would even be appropriate?
Sometimes I like open toe shoes, even if they are confusing (Jayne from ‘Stop It Right Now’ has a silver pair that looks great on her). Personally I wouldn’t buy them, I don’t like showing my toes and I’m prone to injury. These are definitely the worst I’ve seen, I really don’t understand how anyone could justify spending that much on a useless shoe.
I HATE open-toed boots. Hate hate hate. I live in the fucking Midwest. It _snows_ here. A lot. And it’s cold. But even if it wasn’t, who the hell wants to wear open-toed boots in any season? Either you freeze or your boots start smelling funny real fast because you can’t wear socks. It’s a lose/lose design.
These simply don’t exist here in New England. I’ve never seen open-toe boots like this in person. They must be for people who are privileged enough to never have to set foot in snow/slush/puddles/mud…you need an entourage to carry you over the drifts, like how Anna Wintour has people carry her up stairs.
I’ll just be over here Scotchgarding my motorcycle boots for the first snow… 😛
lol yeah fashion is not about sense…it can be alarming but i know i wouldn’t buy this….and nor would your average rag picker even if it was free. maybe the hole is to show that “”im wealthy and these are ‘FASHIONABLE’ shoes and not just socks inside my peeptoe boots, hence you see my toes.””
