Would you wear these?

Pics courtesy of People Style Watch

Have you guys heard about the new trend in footwear? I'm not so sure these bad boys are for me. They're described as "the latest hybrid shoe – part open-toed sandal, part ankle boot."


The pics above show Jessica Alba, Whitney Port and Rachel Bilson all sportin' the new look. What do ya'll think? Would you wear them?

sal gal said...

but you never know. i've said that before and in the end i was sporting it with pride. or was that shame?

Mamarazzi said...

H-E-Double L- NO!!

not gonna happen...ever!

Lianna Knight said...

I can't say that I would :( I'm not feeling this style AT all...the dresses, yes, but the shoes, NO!

Nobody You Know said...

uh....nothankyouverymuch

Lauren said...

Oh my GOSH... No! What in the world?!?!

Jenn said...

NO WAY!!! I think they're hideous. I had a dream last night I was wearing bone colored ankle boots. I wouldn't be caught in either in real life.

There is a little something waiting for you on my blog...

It's me Suzette! said...

No ma'am! These are horrible! I'm with Sal Gal on her comment. I am guilty of saying I hate a new fad and then find myself right along with the other fashion mishaps, but this one, I just don't see happening! yuck

Brandi said...

I love reading your blog. Some of your stories crack me up! I thought I would comment this time.

Like some of the others my first thought is NO WAY!!! But then I get to looking at them and think, 'well maybe I would'. I don't know. It's a toss up. I've said that before on things and guess what, end up having one of each in the closet! :D

I am going to an 80's party next weekend though and I do think these shoes would be perfect! Oh why didn't I keep my leg warmers and slouch socks from so long ago!!!!!

Rebecca Jo said...

They're a little odd! I cant' say I would even have an outfit that would make them look cute.....

But I also made fun of Ugs when they came out - & then I wore the heck out of them.....

Shannon said...

Oh wow, where do I buy those - those are awesome!

Ha JK! I wouldn't wear those if my life depended on it.

I've been blog surfing this morning and found you.

I have to leave a post about those hideous shoes. Firstly because I can't stand ankle boots. I think they are awful but now cut out the toe?

Someone in the fashion industry is just messing around thinking "Hey! let's see whose gullible enough to by these boots without the toe because we didn't have enough leather to finish them off!" Crazy fasionista's

petrii said...

Ummmm why have I not seen these? Wouldn't they be cute with jeans? hahahahahahahahaha

I like the dresses but those shoes, not so much. But things for keeping up with the style. I feel so up on the fashion :0)

Pennies In My Pocket said...

No. N.O. Those are just about the UGLIEST things I have ever seen on feet! Ew. I'd like to know if they think they look good. lol

Carolyn said...

I would wear the ones Rachel B is wearing, partly because I think they are actually cute, the color works for me, and also partly because anything she wears I worship. Love her.
I am IN on this trend but wont buy them for myself more than likely.

Kristy said...

I think that I'll have to go with NO! They are not cute to me... sorry!

Mojito Maven said...

ummmmm NO

The Pink Owl said...

no way! I just can't get over how they look like bandages for sprained ankles! ;) Yuck, yuck, yuck!

Jyl @ MommyGossip said...

I want to say no, but I am always amazed at what I say no to and then end up wearing even from simple non-ugly things like flat shoes. We do get persuaded by fashion, so we'll see is the best I can do. Just can't imagine it though. I wonder if they are comfy :).

MiMi said...

NO!! I LOVE shoes, but I'm afraid these are an exception!

Legallyblondemel said...

No, no, no! I usually love Rachel Bilson's eclectic style, but she really went off the rails here.
