Here at MTV Style, we wear heels or platforms...basically every day. We break our backs, pulverize the cartilege in our knees, and get nasty blisters all for the sake of FASHUNN. So today, we decided to do things a little differently. We've ditched our sky-highs for some Fila Skele-Toes, aka "those toeshoes." We're chronicling our adventures via the MTV Style Twitter AND our personal Twitters. Follow the shenanigans with the hashtag #daywithoutheels. We can't believe how short we all are. The air is so thick and luxurious down here...

THE ORIGINAL TWEET:

Today's assignment: Wear these gross-tastic toe shoes ALL DAY and report any feedback. HOW DO YOU LIKE OUR FEETZ? http://twitpic.com/64einuless than a minute ago via Twitpic Favorite Retweet Reply


THE RESPONSES:

@choitotheworld you're doing it wrong, unless you pair those toeshoes with one of these: http://t.co/ZKhDSkf #daywithoutheelsless than a minute ago via Twitter for iPad Favorite Retweet Reply

The best comment I've received so far on toe shoes: "Those shoes are like instant boner-killers." Thanks, @jessiepeterson. #daywithoutheelsless than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply


SURE THEY'RE FUG, BUT HOW DO THEY FEEL?:

Initial report on FILA Skeletoes: arch support is RIDICK. like a soft handed man of privilege gently cupping each foot. #daywithoutheelsless than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

Ha! @sweatmoustache @MTVstyle --those things are NOT attractive. That being said, I've heard they're the bee's knees for running.less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

Starting to get used to the dewiness. Feels like my toes are wrapped in gel inserts. Kinda nice, actually. #daywithoutheelsless than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

FINAL THOUGHTS:

CONFESSION: I took off my skeletoes for a staff meeting. YO I'm the NEW KID, can't be all monkey-footing around! #slothtoes #daywithoutheelsless than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

Just in the bathroom, and @MTVBuzzworthy TOTES spotted my toe shoes under the stall and said, "I SEE FROG FEET." Perfect ending to today.less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

OK, y'all, it's almost 6:00 p.m., and we're not going home ANY time soon—thank GOD we're wearing these fugcomfortable shoes. All in all, a joy-filled day jam-packed with awkward stares and fits of laughter. We hope they look good on the cab ride home!
