I can't wait to try these. I know, they're tiny cotton sock-lets; nothing more. You are to wear them with dress shoes, to discreetly envelope your feet in cottony comfort.
Naturally, I'm also thinking...what if they made these with cushioning on the bottom? or a non-skid finish, for heels? A Foot-Petals-meets-footsie kind of a thing? I'm fairly certain they already make something similar, but what I have in mind should be as refined as stockings.
I finally got these shoes, the Cydwoq Category, after thinking about them for at least a year, perhaps two. I now own several pairs of this brand, to the point I want most of my shoes to be Cydwoqs...with the odd Cole Haan, La Canadienne, and the shoe which shall take months to afford, Thierry Rabotin, comprising a minority of the stash.
I can admit what attracted me most about Category was the giant hole. lol! I tried these out in winter, with tights, and the hole barely showed, which I felt made them versatile. The hole is there to make you feel cooler in summer. It's also why I passed on the dishy Cydwoq Game boots:
I love the holes in back! But when it's sufficiently chilly to wear boots in the first place, you don't want holes in them!
Damn you, Van Helsing!
The same day I endeavored to ditch my wardrobe wish-list, I got a catalogue in the mail.
If the road to hell in software development begins with: "Wouldn't it be nice if...", the path to damnation in wardrobe strategy contains the following:
"There's a shop..."
"There's a sale..."
"I got a catalogue in the mail."
JJill has cranked out a new color story, featuring my favorite clothing shade of all time, olive green. I've already decided to try a couple of items, once they hit the b & m stores (JJill clothing imo must be tried on, since it doesn't fit consistently, and seldom looks the same in real life as it does in pictures).
