I've never worn the heels with the open toe hole, but I tried some on and I like them a lot! I'm in New England, and we get snow, freezing, all that... You can wear whatever you want-- but I want to know, do you wear those in late fall and in winter? Or are those JUST summer shoes? I have NO idea. I have no clue when is appropriate to wear them. I actually don't see them on anyone! But I know they sell, and I see celebrities wearing them but they're usually in warmer climate. blah blah.. just curious.
