Camel Toe Footwear: What Do We Think? I’m Thinking: Not.

Fix yourself, girl--you got a...

I wanted to be a dissident and say I like these. I tried, I really did. I almost always love what SJP is wearing, and yes, that includes the wacky AmQ number she wore to the American SATC movie premier, yes, yes it does. But this. There’s something wrong. I guess I can just flat-out say that I would never buy these. Do we think that this split-toe really makes the show *that* much more comfortable?! I mean, if you’re paying $1, 295.00 for a pair of Maison Martin Margiela Tabi shoes, shouldn’t they be comfortable enough? (On the bright side, you know you now have a reason to buy those dubious rainbow feet-gloves that you see at places like Claire’s as a complementary purchase!) Alas, I say no to these. I say no. And I think that it’s safe to say this is a trend that will not be sticking.

However, I suppose the least I can do is pay homage to fashionistas such as Sarah Jessica who make bold choices (because they can afford it and because they live in New York) without thinking twice. Even. Even if the dreaded words “camel toe” are inextricably linked to that choice. Even. Now that takes balls. It’s almost as daring as naming your band Fanny Pack.

    ahhhh! those shoes are hideous, and no one could ever look good in them, no matter how bold a fashionista may be.

  2. It’s perhaps one of the toughest trends to make a case for…in quite some time. I’d take harem pants over these ANY DAY.
