Summer Footwear No-No’s

Posted By Ethel Navales On July 18, 2013 @ 9:18 pm In FASHION + BEAUTY,Trends & Reviews | Comments Disabled

We live in an age where bold is in, eccentric is cute, and mixing patterns is hip. We’re accepting of a lot of new trends and it almost seem like the more weird a fad may be, the more “cool” it is.

But there’s a limit. There is definitely a limit. If this summer has taught me anything so far, its that some things will simply not work.

Here’s a list of our top five SUMMER FOOTWEAR NO-NO’S:

 

1) Toe-Separating Sandals

Macy’s has released a new line of footwear called Wellrox [1]. If you are somehow unable to notice whats so horrible about these, we’re gonna go ahead and point it out for you- these are toe-separating sandals. Macy’s claims that this line is “unusual in the cutest way”, but we’re pretty sure they misused the word cute. They’ve released about 8 style (trust us, the picture above is about as good as it gets) and these sandals will cost you anything from $50-$100. Nice efforts, Wellrox.


 

2) Original Crocs

Despite the number of jokes and people who openly oppose crocs, the shoe is still (for some unknown reason)  alive and going strong. In an effort to appeal to a larger crowd, crocs has released a number of new styles which are admittedly much more fashionable. So if you still want to comfort of crocs, please go purchase the latest ones and ditch these buckets.


3) UGGs in the Summer

Are we saying that UGGs are unfashionable? Absolutely not. Pair it with some leggings and an oversized sweater and you’re all set for the winter time. But these things are definitely a no-no for the summer. People will often pair UGGs with shorts or a skirt leaving the rest of us confused about whether or not their hot or cold. If its 90 degrees out, trust us, you probably don’t want your feet to be that warm.

 

4) These Furry, Jeweled Things

Ranking number four on Vogue’s “The Ugly-Pretty Sandal: Ten Takes on Summer’s Must-Have Shoe [2]” list, are these things. Lined with fur perfect for hot summer weather and bedazzled in so many jewels that its blinding, you would think these were made as some sort of joke. It has to be right? Nope, unfortunately they’re not. In fact, these Celine sandals will cost you $3,950.

 

5) Socks and Sandals

Speaking of Vogue, it appears as if they’re trying very hard to make socks and sandals work. No Vogue, this will not happen. Just as Regina George made it clear that “fetch” will never happen, this duo will not go well with one another.
