Does anyone else have a problem with how their toes look in peep toes or open toes? I HATE my feet in these types but all the CLs I fall in love with are peeps! Lol is there a certain style that looks better then others?

I have the same problem! I bought a pair of Lady Peep and wound up returning them because I hated the way my toes looked. IMO I think peep toes look better on people who have long big toes and then smaller other toes. My second, third, and fourth toes are all pretty close in length which I think is why peep toes always look funny on me (although I am determined to find a pair of peep toe CL's that look amazing!)

I have SUPER long toes (and really long feet just in general). I hate my toes, but my thing is if your really that close to my feet to be staring at my toes...well, that means I can then kick you.

(Here's a link to my collection page of my LPs and my super long toes.)

but...IMO if they're comfy (or as comfy as CLs can be for you) and you love them...rock them. People will be admiring your legs and the amazing shoes.

It is frustrating! I may just have to buy some and just try it out!

But your feet look so cute in them! It is my personal opinion of how my toes look in them that is problem. If anyone ever said anything about it I would kick them! Lol

Ahh I love that you said that! I have been debating VPs for the longest time. My second toe is about the same length as my big toe and the tip of it barely passes the top of the shoe but when I try a half size bigger it's too much room in the front. You're so right if anyone actually notices that, they're way too close! :smile: hehehe I love it!! Thank you!!!

I don't HATE the way my feet look but I have the opposite problem. I have shorter tapered toes and I never get enough peep. =(

Awww. Thanks! :hugs: I say my gross feet are hidden by the height of the heel and the beauty of the shoe (yes, I absolutely hate my feet lol)

The aborina is one style that is open-toed but you don't see a lot of toe. I'm 1000000% positive you will find the perfect-est open-toed CLs.

I too hate my toes! For some reason I am ok with flip flops, but everything else MUST be closed toe, and round toe, not pointed! I figured I was strange, good to see that I am not alone! :smile:

Welcome!! :smile: And, usually we are the hardest ones on ourselves. I've realized most women will compliment the shoes rather than even look at our feet.

I think all the shoes and CL outfits you've posted that I've seen look absolutely fab. (Sorry, I know I should have multi-quoted but I forgot.)

I tried on the yolanda n loved it except it looked like three toes were showing in the peep from certain angles.. 😔I tried the vp n my foot kept slipping out. Recently I tried the no prive in multiglitter loved it but had a sling back which I'm not keen on..

I have the same problem! I don't like the way my toes look in peeps, BUT, the prettiest styles are always peep - so I end up buying those. Plus, my toes are very sensitive so the peeps hit my big toe and inevitably they get very red/irritated :sad:
