Ew, Girl: 9 Examples Of Gross Shrimp Cocktail Toes

Shrimp Cocktail Toes: You might know it as toe overhang, but we prefer to call it Shrimp Cocktail, after the way toes sometimes hang over the edge of sandals and shoes like delicate shrimps.

Do Not Want: Alexander Wang’s “Teva” Sandals

Oh my God, you guys. Breaking news. Alexander Wang is making Tevas. Excuse me, Teva-inspired shoes. I have just lost all faith in humanity.

Do Not Want: Converse Hightop Sandal

C’mon, Converse, you could not possibly be serious with this shoe. This sandal is a travesty. As an environmentalist, I am appalled. No one is going to buy this shoe and then every single pair you’ve produced is going to end up in a landfill somewhere. The phrase is “Earth first,” Converse, not “Hideous sandal/highto…

The sandal with ankle sheath (or boot-al as we like to call it, think bootie plus sandal) isn’t an all-new concept.

How To Keep Your Feet Looking Nice This Summer

When I lived at home, my mom made us — and our confused friends — wash our feet in the sink before entering the house proper during the summer. In sandal weather, she could often be heard admonishing us not to “drag our street feet into the house!” As a result, I’m flexible and balanced…

Would You Wear These Love Sandals?

We’re a bit confused after seeing these Love shoes on British Elle’s list of favorite summer sandals. We’re all for being affectionate, but these sandals feel just a tad forced, don’t you think?
