Would You Wear A Thong On Your Feet?
January 31, 2008
We all know that letting your thong peep out over the top of your jeans is one of the biggest fashion no-no's there is. In fact, it's a crime so heinous some cities are considering making it a finable offense . But what if the visible thong in question wasn't concealing your nethers, but rather exposing your newly manicured tootsies?
Foothongs by Mic were designed to "add some muscle to the hosiery industry", according to designer Marcella Islar. Unlike traditional toeless hose, racy Foothongs thigh-highs are meant to be seen, with their positionable "thong" adding a graphic element where only toe rings and polish dared go before. The Foothongs website even suggests some places you might wear these revolutionary stockings: "the bedroom, the boardroom, the ballroom, or on your honeymoon night (for something new)." They come in lace-topped or plain versions so you can spice things up by wearing them as a lingerie item, or be more discreet in avoiding that other fashion sin—visible hosiery seams with open-toed shoes.
So what do you think? Will you be showing off your thong-tha-thong-thong-thong (pairs start at $15 ) or will you be sticking to the sucked-in safety of your Spanx? Let us know what you think of this new development in the comments section below.
