Dear Joni: We Found You Some New Camo Pumps

By now, you’ve probably seen Republican Senator Joni Ernst’s questionable camouflage pumps. Indeed, the Iowa combat veteran’s square-toed Aerosoles shoes quickly went viral following last night’s rebuttal to President Obama’s State of the Union address. While we thought the shoes were a charming nod to Ernst’s army roots, from a fashion perspective they majorly missed the mark. That toe shape is a definite no-fly zone, and the heel height was too middle of the road. But we don’t expect Ernst to be a shoe expert — that’s what FN is here for. Joni, if you’re reading this, the spotlight is on you, and it’s time to step it up. Way up. Camo is without a doubt one of the trickiest patterns to pull off.  Hence, here are four foolproof versions that are ready for their closeup.
