Would You Rather Have These Ugly $500 Rodarte Socks Or A New Handbag?

$500 dollar socks have become a reality, folks, and you can thank Rodarte for that. Despite their Juarez makeup fiasco, we love Rodarte, but we just can’t wrap our heads around this one. Not only are these ugly socks rather hole-y, but they are non-washable (spot clean only), too. No wonder so many New Yorkers have deemed them ridiculous. Oh well, let’s hope Rodarte redeems themselves with their limited edition Opening Ceremony limited edition collection next Spring.

Don’t worry – we’ve got great options so you can get in on the bold hosiery trend without emptying your your bank account.

These J. Crew Herringbone Tights ($22.50) add texture and interest to your legs, without adding bulk.

We like these gray Club Monaco Wool Thigh Highs ($24) with a skirt and flats.

These Gap Cableknit Tights ($14.50) will look great with your over the knee boots.
