We realise we’ve had bit of a "thing" about socks recently here at The Fashion Police, and we do apologise. The thing is, though, that socks are an item of clothing so regularly abused by fashion criminals that it would be a shame to let the manifold crimes committed against them go un-reported, wouldn’t it?
Take these half-socks, for instance. What the hell? And OK, we can see that they’re obviously meant to be worn with mules or clogs, but we will say once again: if your footwear is so hard to wear that you’re forced to seek out all kinds of convoluted socks and half-socks and thong socks and the like, maybe it’s time to rethink your footwear choices, no?
We would also be interested to hear from anyone who’s actually worn these "half socks", because it seems to us that that ridge around the ball of the foot must be really uncomfortable? Are we wrong?
