Latex Socks, Because Knitted Ones Are Overrated

Among all those times that your cold feet found comfort in a pair of thick knitted socks, did you ever wonder, “Wow these sock things are amazing! I wonder if they come in more jazzy materials, say latex“? Thanks to Gucci, the answer is now a solid yes. Remember these insane patent and leather sandals that Yoyo wore to the very first day of Milan Fashion Week? If you missed them in stores, allow us to be your personal harbinger of good news, because they’ve just landed on the interwebs, fresh and ready for you to add to cart. CUE THE CONFETTI AND STRING QUARTET!

Because Alessandro Michele is kind of a genius, these marvellous kicks don’t just look convertible, they are convertible. That means you can wear the sandals with the latex socks when you aren’t at risk of contracting Athlete’s Foot and ditch them when ventilation is more important than vanity. Priorities, priorities. They aren’t the easiest to walk in when you’re tottering on cobbled streets, but are they worth every shred of effort? Well, si, signora, si.

Styling them is easier than you think. Yoyo wore them with a tweed jacket, a ruffled blouse and faded worn-to-death black jeans in Milan, but as long as you treat them like regular black stilettos, you’ll do just fine. Shop her look below along with not two, not three but four convertible two-in-one shoes.
