Sock Horror! Toe footsies – to be worn with strappy sandals


  One of the questions we're asked most often is "Is it OK to wear tights with opem-toed sandals?"

Well, according to Transparemze, the answer to that would be a definite "yes", because they've designed these Toe Footsies with the intention that people  would do exactly that – wear them with strappy sandals. Yes. 

As for The Fashion Police, we've always fallen firmly on the "no tights with strappy sandals" side of the line, and the image above has done nothing to change our minds on that issue. No siree.

What about you, though, readers? Is this a true case of "Sock Horror!" or would you wear 'em?

    Wow, those are all kinds of awful. Maybe they’re for some sort of sexy clown look I didn’t know about.
    I have worn tights with strappy heels once, and those were black fishnets with black heels which I loved.

    These are beyond ridiculous. And I’m crying because the shows are gorgeous.

    With strappy sandals? Definite no-no. But I have seen similar socks that look cute with peep-toe pumps

    Good lord.. Utterly daft! Why..? Just seems pointless to me, surely they’d come off your feet too if you actually tried walking around in them… Very odd!
    I’ve been know to wear tights with open toed shoes and sandals before, but these?

    This look reminds me of those grannies that wear the mid-calf nylons with shorts or knee length skirts/dresses.
    Not a good look at all.

    i would have to agree these are hideous!!!
    i don’t get the tights with strappy sandals things, totally horrible. but what about tights with open toes? i’m very drawn on that issue, but i would have to say i don’t really agree with that either. what does the Fashion Police think?

    I’ve seen many gorgeous women in Russia pair various close toed heels with net (or other holly pattern) socks and then jeans with that, which looked sexy; but this I’ve only seen old Asian ladies wear on the streets of Vancouver, BC.
    Yes, old Asian ladies of all people.

    I like the look of nylon thights over my toes, even with toe seams, in all kind of open toed sandals.
    I know men find this very attractive.
    The toe footsies I’ve never seen before. I would definetly try that if I would know here to buy this.

    Umm, what exactly are these supposed to be good for? – Preventing your toes from sweating? Not likely. – Keeping your feet warm? Probably not. – Looking pretty? Complete fail! The worst part of these is the highly visible seam. Horrible!

    I love the sheer white with the black polka dots and the little bow… They should make these into tights or thigh highs so that we can wear them with normal shoes. And I can’t help but find them kind of adorable the way they are.
