do you wear with your knitted socks? I want to show them off! LOL Specially the lacey ones Ive knitted in the most stunning colours. We are into Spring now (New Zealand) and here in Auckland it is not that warm except Dec/Jan. (to me that is) I can therefore still wear my lacy anklets. Some ideas will be welcomed. Thanks.

Sandals, or buy some clear boots.

I wear my socks with anything, particularly Birkenstocks. Birk makes some nice sandals that would show off your socks. I have clogs, but want the sandals.

Okay, for you clog and birk girls (and even those cute clear boots...)

How cute are those?

Mary-Janes! They show off a lot of sock and have kind of a cute girly thing happening.

That was one of the first patterns I saved. It's still sitting there, on my hard drive, waiting.

I wear almost always my hand knit socks w/ my clogs. I have white ones for work and every other color for the rest....I also purchased a pair of the clear rainboots, but they hurt my ankles so I cannot wear them so I stick w/ clogs. The pattern they are talking about you can find at this address:

Enjoy! I love Knitty.com...lots of great free patterns on line. Happy knitting

I noticed that they also have children's boots, too:

I've seen the clear boots at a couple of LYS, but I was curious as to how comfortable they are. I can see how they would hurt ankles, Vicky.

Yes, They are very painful right above the laces. I wish I could figure something out to fix it. Otherwise, they are nice and comfortable. I wear my new shoes around the house off and on for a while before going outside. I wasn't able to wear these longer than 20 minutes and that includes sitting time! So if anyone else has had this problem and have found a way to overcome it....PLEASE let me know I would love to be able to wear these boots this Winter. I have a feeling we are going to have a cold, wet, and long Winter.

Does it cause pain at your ankle bone? I've had high-top shoes that hurt around there. I wound up not lacing them that high (but then they get too loose).

Thanks, had a look at the clear boots, they sure look good, but arent they "sweaty"? seeing it is not leather, and do they sort of "give away" (pliable I think is the word I mean :-) )around your leg/ankle? Havent seen them around here and would be nervous in ordering online. How did you get yours? If in shops in USA/Canada I can always ask daughter to get them for me,

I ordered mine on line. I think through either Patternworks.com or knitpicks.com I can't remember. I think if I had tried them on, I would not have bought them. They are pliable except at the front where the tongue and the sides meet. That's where it rubs so badly. I have tried softening it w/ warm water and moving in back and forth one evening, but it didn't work. These shoes for some reason do not make your feet sweat. I don't know why not. I have two pairs of these in a shoe/clog style that I wear alot in the Winter and don't notice my feet getting any hotter than they usually get in regular shoes.
