    The bottom photo of the tube socks and high heels reminds me of a high end version of grungy Birkenstocks and white socks – i.e. tacky.
    If it is too cold to wear the shoes bare – why not tights?

    Maybe they would look better in the context of the entire outfit

    but… I do like the expression held in the pose of the woman’s legs.

    I love the pink pair! they’re so playful, especially with a skirt/dress that length…

    I like the high heels of the first photo, those ones of the right. They seem to be animal print. Snake, maybe?

    YAY! SHOES! I love shoes, especially these.
    Socks and heels make an interesting combo, it is a nice alternative to tights. Although the picture above with the tights and shoe combo is equally stellar.

    like who needs thigh high boots when you can wear thigh high socks (tastefully… with shorter boots over)… these are things i ponder

    I am going to dissent about the pink heels. They just tip into the gaudy side. However, I love racing stripe sock paired with a high heel.

    Always a fan of socks & sandals…thanks for more ammo and inspiration to expand the look
    I knew there was a reason why my sock drawer is surprisingly full. Proportionately, my leg attire takes the same amount of considered thought as the whole look itself.

    when looking at a woman for the first time, i always start with the face, then go to the shoes. here, we only get the shoes, sadly. as the hot pink on deep black is quite hot, and the blue suede on brown knee-high socks is completely adorable, i want to see more, more, more.

    I love the shoes. Absolutely fantastic. I would fall and break a hip, but for the young and fearless – woo hoo!

    The socks are a sign of something even more insidious than the eighties coming back – the seventies could come back!

    Either run and hide or feather your hair. There is no middle ground.

    Second picture is the best–more style and less simple shock value. But I’m old-school: find it hard to get behind tights/stockings and open-toed shoes. My eye says, terrifically wrong choice. And only of the moment–fashion, not style. It is also a very young choice: makes me think school-girl (especially with knee highs) rather than adult, in overall style.

    Re: the bottom picture. Why would someone spend their life designing beautiful shoes to have someone dumb them down with knee socks?

    I think if you have the money or the sense to buy good shoes you should also have the sense not to dress like a rebellious teenager.
