Thong booties: the words we never wanted to hear

Thong_bootie

This week, reports have started to reach The Fashion Police of yet another worrying trend in footwear. These disturbing images were sent to us by Orla, and as you can see, they depict "thong booties". Yes, thong booties. We know. Hush, now, The Fashion Police will make the scary monsters go away. Unless, of course, you really like them, in which case you can buy yourself a pair at Shopbop, where they’re currently retailing for $178. And they’re also available in black…

    So. A boot that displays the worst part of my foot (my hard, cracked heels and my cold, blue toes) and lets the rain in too.
    Thong Boot = FAIL!

    Um, these will be in my nightmares tonight. The feet…look like hands. In flesh toned gloves. I think I’m going to be sick.

    These are certainly THE MOST HIDEOUS THING I HAVE EVER SEEN. I’m not even sure that I will be able to leave the house today in the fear that someone will be wearing them. *shudder*

    If you wore a same-colored dress with black & had black tights, maybe it might look good, but in any other situation; no no no.

    They look vaguely ancient Roman, so I thought there might have been a precedent – can’t find one though – they clearly had better taste…

    Oh my god, they really are real. When I first saw them I had to take a few days to recover, hoping maybe it was just a nightmare. But no, they’re still here.
    They look so…medical.

    Because some can’t decide on wanting to wear thong sandals or ankle boots, we have these, wanting to combine both worlds in hopes to look fabulous. Well, these are a fail to me. Sandals or boots. Don’t let these be the all-in-one solution!
