Fashion Police Glossary: Impostor Footwear

Impostor_footwearImpostor Footwear: the Fashion Police cells are absolutely full of it, but what is it, we hear you ask?

Impostor Footwear is exactly what the name suggests: shoes, boots and socks that are all pretending to be something they’re not. In other words: impostors. Into this category go the Boots-Pretending-to-Be-Shoes, the Socks-Pretending-to-Be-Boots, and everything in between.

Although some forms of Impostor Footwear can look perfectly fine, the truth is that most Footwear Impostors are also Fashion Criminals, so we’ve included a Rogue’s Gallery of them under the jump, to help you identify the miscreants, should the need arise…
