Cut it Out!

It looks like good ol’ Uncle Joey Gladstone from Full House was a prophetic with his iconic catch phrase.

One of this Summer’s hottest shoe trends is the cut out. A sexy silhouette that shows off all of the pretty patches of your tootsies (just make sure you slip into a pair post pedicure…Winter shoes can be a bit rough on a ladies heels), this trend is emerging in the form of platforms, wedges, stilettos…and now even in little black oxfords.

I have been loving the cut out trend this season, and I think it transitions nicely to these classic staple shoes. These Minimarket Lace Up Cut Out Oxfords are on the more extreme end of the cut out silhouette, but I have to admit that I find them rather intriguing. The barely-there look is pretty playful and adventurous, which is a route I enjoy taking with my everyday shoes.  Nerdy Uncle Joey may have called it, but I think this trend is better suited for sexy Uncle Jesse. Have Mercy…

    There is a semi stupid policy at my new job that requires closed toe and closed heel shoes so that pretty much takes out 85% of my copious number of cover for the feets. I love this if no other reason than to f@#k with them!

    I might have to use some spray on tan on my feet to get the proper two-tone look going, if they have them for men.

    These remind me of my two favorite flats: a white cut-out Gatsbyesque pair coupled with my beloved Doc Martens. I’ll be looking into these . . .

    I can’t really see men rushing to buy into the kind of goofball fashion concepts women are so quick to embrace. These shoes are just so wrong. Of course, I think cropped pants look unflatteringly high water at least 99% of the time, so I realize I have a minority opinion.

    Livia, I’m with you. These shoes are not my favorites, although if I have to see someone’s naked feet at work, I’d rather see her instep than her gnarly heel or grody toes. Jennie – I completely understand the rule against exposed foot parts!
