Nordstrom Is Definitely Trolling Us With This New Shoe, Right?
Nordstrom, can we talk? I feel like you are crying out for help. First you gave us an $85Â rock in a bag. Next came the $95Â clear knee mom jeans, quickly followed by the $425 mud-stained jeans. But now…now you are selling a “sock sandal” for $1125, and I think it’s time we recognize that you’re in the middle of a crisis.
I’m taking myself to a fancy party this weekend, so I decided to do a little online shoe shopping. My jaw DROPPED when I came across the “Ilse Sock Sandal” by Gucci.
The shoe’s description reads, “Add a little something extra to your look with a streamlined take on the sock-with-sandals trend that highlights glossy finishes and luscious red leather.” Uh. I have questions.
~What in the world?
~Why in the world?
~Is this shoe only for white people?
Horrifyingly, the shoe/sock combo also comes in an over-the-knee version. So if you don’t want to shave your legs or get a pedicure, just put on this ugly, shiny sock! Why. Seriously. WHY.
The reviews (which have since been removed) were the only positive thing to come from this abomination.
Nordstrom, I know you didn’t design the shoe, but really, just because Gucci makes it doesn’t mean you have to sell it. It’s okay to say no sometimes. Assert yourself!
If you fancy the shoe but not the strange, white-lady-flesh sock, good news: the sock is removable. It will still cost you almost $1200, though. Instead of the sock sandal, you could buy a pair of clear knee mom jeans, muddy dad jeans, and still have some money left over! What a deal.
