Okay to be honest, “huh” was not my first response when I opened an e-mail from Cusp advertising a sandal bootie from Dolce Vita. My first response was WTF?, what are they thinking? Can these designers please just stick to designing beautiful shoes and leave the innovation to creating 6 inch heels that are comfortable as opposed to the very ugly combo of a sandal bootie. Which by the way, why would you even want to combine a sandal and a bootie, what would be the benefit, it is too hot to wear in the summer and too cold to wear in the winter?
What do you guys think? Cute and innovative or just plain ugly? One of my friends responded that they are “ick. the next uggs.” and I sure hope we do not see them on every high school girl worn with a too short, frayed, Abercrombie denim skirt like they did with Uggs. The joys of fashion! Check out the sandal bootie at www.cusp.com.
