Crimes of Fashion, Shoes

The Tube Flop: a flip-flops-stuck-to-legwarmers crime


Brrrr! Starting to get a bit chilly now, isn’t it? And as those Autumn nights draw in, we know you’ll all be looking for ways to continue wearing plastic flip-flops without freezing, right? Well, shoe brand Sanuk has the answer: it’s called the Tube Flop, and as you can see, it’s the unholy alliance of flip-flops and tube socks. (Or “legwarmers” as we would call them.)

Flip-flops and tube socks, flip-flops and tube socks. Nope, no matter how many times we say it, it never sounds any better. Or looks any better, actually, because seriously: if you really MUST attach socks to sandals, is there any reason the socks must be so damn ugly? The ones in the middle, for instance, remind us of a pair of curtains from the 70s. That someone threw up on.

And we’d also like to take issue with this rash statement from Zappos:

Wearing socks and sandals used to be an absolute fashion faux pas; now, it’s a chic statement!”

No, Zappos. No, it’s really not. Just trust us on that one.

[Thanks to Officer Ma’at for the report!]
