TK Maxx is selling boots that look like those little shoe covers you get at a swimming pool

Fashion is strange. This is something we must all acknowledge.

If you dive inside the fashion world you’ll find trainers filled with holy water and asymmetrical jeans that are clearly pure evil in denim form.

Now the stylish thing to wear appears to be those little shoe covers you find at the local lido. You know, the little blue plastic things.

You can’t just pick up a stash on your way into the gym to win style points, mind you.

Everyone knows that high fashion means taking something ridiculous and slapping a bizarre price tag on it.

In this case, you can now buy heeled boots that recreate the look of those little blue plastic things from TK Maxx for the bargain price of £100, down from the original price of £520.

They’re the creation of Joseph, who describes them as ‘colour-block boots’ rather than a name referencing the swimming pool.

The label does not, however, provide any explanation for why little blue covers are now so stylish or why the look is worth £520.

TK Maxx has since sold out of the boots, but if you’re desperate to get your hands on a pair, they’re also being sold through Farfetch for £297.

Or you could get creative with some blue fabric paint, or really commit by grabbing shoe covers from your local lido and gluing them to your ankle boots.

It’s called fashion. Look it up.
