Sock Horror! VPL Knee Lows Socks

Vpl-footless-socks

  Neither socks, nor tights, nor leggings, nor legwarmers, these are VPL's Knee Lows Socks.

At various points in The Fashion Police's history, we've shown you pictures of items similar to these, and you've posited lots of theories, and, indeed, excuses, for their existence.

But we still think they look like the kind of surgical garment you'd be given to wear if you strained something in your leg.

And if you could just refresh our memories on the whole "why they cost $55" thing, that would be grand…

    The tops of them look like the TED’s we use at work to stop DVT’s in patients having surgery…

    I suspect they’re for when you have something that falls below the knee, but above the ankle, need a leg covering for that area, and have open-toe shoes.
    They’re still rather silly, and definitely overpriced.

    Maybe to cover up a really ugly varicose vein?
