10 Places You Should Never Wear Barefoot Shoes

On Sunday at a Golden Globes after-party, the unthinkable happened: a celebrity made a fashion faux pas. Oh wait, this happens all the time? Whoops! Well, this wasn’t just another celeb on E!’s worst dressed list. Shailene Woodley, who co-starred with George Clooney in Golden Globe winner for Best Picture Drama, The Descendants, didn’t wear the standard black stiletto to the after-parties like every other starlet — she wore barefoot running shoes. These “shoes” look like heavy duty socks that work as running shoes. Apparently they’re the better alternative for runners instead of a regular running shoe because you’re “one with nature” or some mumbo-jumbo like that. To me, these look like tragic toe socks.

The Golden Globes are definitely not the place to wear these shoes, and I think I have compiled a pretty decent list of places that no one should ever wear barefoot running shoes (“Anytime you’re not running” would be too easy).
