yay or nay: cuff bootie thong

I'm going to put it out there:
I. Hate.This. Shoe.  (but I kind of love the name)
I've never actually seen someone wear a pair of these but I'll be interested in any of you love these.



I purposely did not link to where I found these shoes because I can't in good faith help you do this to yourself. The only person that should be wearing these are Lindsay Lohan. She's needs to hide that alcohol monitering device somehow right?!
So tell me dear friends, do you have a pair? Would you wear them? Do you hate me for passionately hating something you love? :)
xoxo

I hate these too. They make me feel extremely awkward for the person wearing them. What is the point of it being a thong/flip flop is it has material to make it a boot? BUT, that last pair is kind of cute.

nope, i don't like them. not at all.

SG said...

Big Nay on these. I don't see the appeal.

Meghan said...

Oh man, I might be the only one on here who actually does like them:) I have a simple pair myself from Steve Madden and they are actually really comfortable. But my hubby would definitely join you - he hates when I wear them:)

I do not like them with bare legs, but paired with skinny jeans, much cuter! And ladies, please do not wear in the middle of 100 degree weather. Spring and Fall weather only.

These are hideous and I would never wear them! I'm glad I'm not the only one.

I hate those too! I saw a girl with them on at a concert a couple of weeks ago. Awful!

Rasha said...

hahaha, I look at them in the store and Im like, gAWHHH, but then I see some girl wearing them and she looks adorable? um, idk!

I hated them when they popped up in the fashion world myself.
Go try on a pair, try a nice neutral color, and a short dress with it.
I really think you will change your mind.
Wanna show off your calves, great shoes to do this.
Try it I promise. Pinkie Swear!
Now give up the darn link to the last pair, I have a blue and white polka dot prairie skirt that are channeling these shoes!

i like them on other people but not on me. is that ok?

Heather Taylor said...

I don't like them either. Why is there a zipper on some of these? Sandals don't need zippers!

Jen said...

You bring up a good point, Morgan: these shoes are acceptable for criminals trying to hide their ankle bracelets, or maybe for someone with unfortunate cankles who still wants to look somewhat cute and trendy.

Otherwise, these are a huge NAY. I hate them. Although, I know a few bloggers out there who wear and covet them! Not hatin', just hate the shoes! LOL

These things are HIDEOUS!!!!

I have a pair just like the black ones, except mine are tan, and I'm going to be honest: I THINK THEY LOOK HIDEOUS! Why on earth do I have them / wear them? Because my boyfriend picked them out and he likes them. And they are comfortable and easy. But I still think they are ugly as hell.

drollgirl said...

bah! don't shoot me, but i have some that are similar. of course mine are way better and i LOVE them! they are grey dolce vitas, and they are fan-fucking-tastic.

don't get me started on shoes that i hate. crocs are the worst footwear ever invented. different strokes for different folks, i guess! :)

Iva said...

ok please dont get mad...BUT I think this style can be cute!! {These aren't!!} but there are some that can be super cute!!!

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!

Carol {Everyday Delights} said...

Kristin said...
