Sneakers: now with added peep toe

 

We’ve talked a lot recently about the scourge of peep toe boots that’s been afflicting the fashionable world, recently. Rather than getting better, however, we’re sad to report that things are only getting worse, and now it would seem that even the humble sneaker is not safe from the attack of the peep toe. These Ash high-tops, for instance, were just innocent shoes until someone came along and ripped their toes off: now they join the rank of the peep toe boots, and they’ll never be the same again. Especially the denim ones.

What do you think of this development, readers? Do you think peep-toe sneakers are actually a pretty good idea, for those who want to wear them in summer without over-heating? Or do peep toes have no place on this kind of shoe?

    Perfect for this season’s “homeless person” look. Also, ugh.

    My thoughts exactly. As ugly as they are, at the other peep-toe boots you could see that they were designed to look that way. These shoes however just look like they were worn to death and should be replaced ASAP.
    And for those with hot feet in the summer: There’s an invention called SANDALS, you should try it sometime… 😉

    i think they are repulsive, it’s really a shame. and yes the denim are terrible but really, the khaki ones are worse to me because when has a pair of khaki material shoes ever been cute?

    I only wear sneakers when I am going to be in a situation in which my feet require a certain amount of protection. These would completely defeat the purpose!

    Is this a conspiracy by the pedicure industry, to keep our toes in public view at all times?

    My 50 year old mother has severe foot pain and several conditions that require her to use a wheelchair. For comfort, she cut the tops off her sneakers. Now, we call them her hobo shoes.

    I don’t like the whole peep toe deal. If I want my toes showing I’ll wear sandals where all my toes can get air, not just two. I only ever wear sneakers when going running or working out and I’m not concerned with whether my toes are showing then.
