Toe cleavage

I’ve been asked so many times in the last couple of days about TOE CLEAVAGE. “What is it?” “Is it something that’s in?” “Something that’s out?”

I don’t know what it is about cleavage… but the “toe” kind keeps coming up for me.

Since I don’t have ANY OTHER kind of cleavage… I thought I would address what toe cleavage is today. (It’s got a cute little name, huh!?)

According to – the official definition of Toe Cleavage is:

Toe cleavage
Toe cleavage is the partial exposure of a woman’s toes in shoes that are cut low enough at the vamp. Low cut shoes reveal toe cleavage similar to how low cut tops reveal breast cleavage. It is also often referred to as “toe squish” by teens. Toe cleavage is considered to be fashionable by stylists such as Susan Conterno, columnist for FAMOUS magazine. Manolo Blahnik himself opined that “the secret of toe cleavage, a very important part of the sexuality of the shoe” is that “You must only show the first two cracks.”.

So – you see, this really isn’t a “made up” term. It’s an actual kind of cleavage… just not the kind we’re 100% used to.

Now… come on, go get yourself some cleavage!

    I like my toe cleavage too! I got a pair of shoes that I bought from and it is sexy since it is showing toe cleavage. Since I don’t the other type of cleavage, I might as well show it by my toe cleavage. hahaha I learned about it watching TLC’s What not to Wear. Toe Cleavage is hot! I think!

    Lol…you’re funny, Steph. I never even thought about toe cleavage. I have enough trouble dressing myself to hide the other kind.
