How To: Turn Heels Into Booties

Sometimes I’m a little weird, and this outfit tip falls into that category. Nearly all the time, I cannot stand wearing shoes without some form of sock. Feet in general just kinda creep me out, and I’ve found that socks are the perfect cover, transforming them into cute cottony appendages. Normally high heels were exempt from this weirdness, but ever since I worked at DSW, I have learned the value of wearing a sock with a pair of high heels. outfit wearing moto jeans, lace blazer, socks and heels as fake booties

The most inconspicuous option for this would be no-show socks, like these. I’ve found no-show socks popping up at most major clothing or shoe retails, and most recently I ran into some awesome ones at my local Target. If you don’t want anyone seeing your socks while in heels they should just barely cover your toes and hold on at the back of your heel. You’ll usually still see a bit of the sock band just outside the shoe edge so try looking for lace edged versions so they look a bit cuter.

Advantages for Wearing Socks with High Heels:

  • Feet don’t slip around nearly as much
  • Can add extra cushion on ball of foot or heel
  • Prevents excessively sweaty feet (perfect for cheap plastic high heels)
  • Added warmth

That final pro is what brings me to today’s outfit tip:

OUTFIT TIP: To fake the look of a cute pair of booties, choose a pair of heels and wear them with low cut socks in the same color.

The heels in this picture are my classic black pumps from Target and I’m wearing them with a pair of All-Star low-cut socks make for converse. These socks are  pretty thick, so it helped cushion my foot snugly into the heels and kept the top of my feet warm when the weather really wasn’t. For this look you want the low-cut, NOT the no-show. outfit wearing moto jeans, lace blazer, socks and heels as fake bootiesoutfit wearing moto jeans, lace blazer, socks and heels as fake bootiesoutfit wearing moto jeans, lace blazer, socks and heels as fake booties

  1. Very cool idea. The look of the short, or no show socks in pumps is a very cool look. 😉
