New Stockings Made Like Gloves (Jun, 1932)

New Stockings Made Like Gloves

GLOVE stockings are the latest novelty to enter the field of feminine style. As shown in the photo below, the stockings are shaped to fit over the toes and are designed particularly for use with sandals during the warm weather season. The idea emanates from Paris.

    Um… are those feet on the wrong sides of the body? Or is the model a mutant of some sort, with his big toe on the outside of the feet?

    I think she just has her legs crossed.

    I figure that was the case, but the photographer managed to find an angle that makes it look like the feet are on the wrong sides of the body. :-)

    Actually – I think it might be a drawing (that, or the photo is very poorly reproduced – which is certainly a possibility).

    I have toe socks. They keep my feet warmer than regular socks, especially when it’s -30 outside and I have to walk more than a block or two. But in pantyhose? They’d spring holes in an hour.
