GUCCI’S ILSE SOCK SANDAL – Yay or Nay?

It appears, the latest fashion accessory on its way to breaking the internet is Gucci’s Sock Sandal that we saw on the runway of Milan Fashion Week last year (SS17).

So, according to COSMOPOLITAN magazine and various other sources, Nordstrom posted the sandals up with a price tag of $1,190 and only available for preorder, online. This sparked horrified reactions from twitter users. Although the socks can be removed and the sandals worn on their own, these latex pieces have the internet in a frenzy.

Alessandro Michele has always strived to get the world talking about the brand, though it seems people have forgotten that this sandal and sock combination has been seen many times before. Although, I have to say, Gucci’s take on this trend has got to be unique, the latex and patent combination is striking in a way that I doubt I’ll forget anytime soon.

How do you feel about this latest shoe trend? It is a definite no from me, I do not have the courage to walk out in Gucci’s version, do you?
