I was just looking for some black boots online and came across an Amazon listing for toe socks! It totally reignited the love I felt for them previously, how cosy and brightly coloured they can be.

So AIBU?

I used to buy them from the market. I found them quite uncomfortable to wear though. I only wore them because all my mates did. grin

They made my toes colder. I think my toes thrive on each other for warmth smile

I got some for Christmas. They're so uncomfortable. I have an alarming variety of colourful knee high socks. Today's are patchwork. The toes bit I can live without.

Yes you are bvu. I dont like those split toe shoes that make you look like you have ostrich feet either.

I had a pair of toe socks once. None of my shoes would fit. If you did go out wearing them and your wellies no one could see them anyway. Completely pointless fashion.

"They made my toes colder. I think my toes thrive on each other for warmth"

Sure I read an article saying mittens were warmer than gloves for exactly that reason so you're probably right about the toe socks.

Are those the Nike trainers ? I've never tried them. grin I am jealous of your Christmas toe socks Show

The were amazing in all their wriggly-ness

Eughhhh no they used to freak me out. If I wiggled my toes the fabric would rub together and go right through me. I'm cringing at the thought of it.

ABitSensible Thu 17-Mar-16 21:17:28

I mean, come on.

RavioliOnToast Thu 17-Mar-16 21:21:41

I have no idea what you're talking about Sensible, these are, quite positively GORGEOUS

Having something between your toes like that is all kinds of wrong.

ClopySow Thu 17-Mar-16 22:29:08

Yabu. I broke my coccyx because of toe socks. I will never wear them again.

IHaveBrilloHair Thu 17-Mar-16 22:31:38

Oh, I loved those, can you still buy them?

Camel toe of the feet
Yabu

Bleurgh

But if you do buy them you are obligated to wear them with the sheep correction shoes over on style and beauty due to them being removable socks and they'd improve those

Are we talking about different toe socks on this thread. These are what I am thinking about not some kind of cloven hoof thing.

LordoftheTits Thu 17-Mar-16 22:37:27

Yes, they were awful! I hated that they were wool instead of stretchy cotton, and if I pulled them up too far they pressed against the bits in between my toes and the feeling made me feel a bit sick envy (vom face)

LordoftheTits Thu 17-Mar-16 22:39:00

Wait, those aren't toe socks! Those are barefoot trainers?

Toe socks were the socks with separate bits for your toes, like gloves for your feet!

RavioliOnToast Thu 17-Mar-16 22:53:56

They are the toe socks I meant too. (The rainbow ones)

The thread derailed a bit when it was mentioned about those toe seperate-y trainers.

I used to love toe socks as a kid. Now they just just hurt my fat little piggies toes. YABU! Don't do it. It ruined the memory for me.
As for those shoes, I found myself horribly mesmerised by a lady wearing a pair recently, according to DH my disgust was visible. You could see her big toe moving out of sync with the rest. Eugh.

gruffaloshmuffalo Fri 18-Mar-16 02:38:58

I am currently wearing toe socks. I love them! My family bought me and DH some for Christmas, I stole both pairs.

ABitSensible Fri 18-Mar-16 03:22:55

They are all wrong. All of them. just wrong.

Mousefinkle Fri 18-Mar-16 07:18:05

They were all the rage in school so I had some sexy rainbow ones and I think some pink and black ones but they were soooo uncomfortable. The threads used to get loose and feel all tight around my toes. I don't like things between my toes though, never been able to get into flip flops either. They're ugly as hell too! Those trainers are so gross as well.
