Sock Bootie: Strangely Beautiful Or Just Plain Strange?
October 7, 2008
Thre are times when trends pop up and I just can't decide which side of the fence I stand on. Case in point: the Stella McCartney Sock Boot… et al. This is just one of several that I've seen popping up in stores.
There are two versions of the Stella sock boot shown below. They're half bootie/shootie, half grungy ankle warmer. On the left, the Leatherette Ankle Boots ($895), and on the right, the Sock Ankle Bootie ($1195). While I love the bootie portion of the shoes, the sock is somewhat off-putting because I'm not sure what to do with it. At the same time, I think it might look cute if the sock were rolled down over the ankle and you wore them with a pair of fun tights and a sexy dress.
What do you think? Would you wear these hybrids? Would you buy your own leg warmers and inexpensive booties to copy the look? Or is this just Stella gone a little kooky for fall? Voice your opinions in the comments section!
