Alessandra Ambrosio prepped for a workout in the sleekest way yesterday in Los Angeles.
The former Victoria’s Secret Angel stepped out with a friend before a pilates or yoga session, preparing to move her body in a full-length form-fitting black catsuit.
As low-impact workouts like barre or any form of yoga don’t require the use of shoes, Ambrosio added in a set of strappy half-toe socks into the loop. The pair includes a grippier sole with openings for each toe, allowing the foot to find a natural balance on the group with a bit of added traction from the treaded bottoms. Toe Sox offers similar designs for $20 at SimplyWorkout.com.
On top of her unique socks, the Brazilian native added in an easy-to-wear shoe with a trending finish. Her classic flip flops came in an all-black colorway with a flat footbed and a thong-toe front. The pair resembles Havaianas’ classic Slim sandal, which is currently on sale for $19 from its original price of $26 at Amazon.com.
Thong-toe footwear has returned to the celebrity scene as one of spring and summer’s biggest trends. Be it classic flip flops or thong-toe heels, the minimalistic silhouette falls in line with a ’90s-inspired revitalization of fashion and shoes like square-toe styles and pops of neon color.
You can find thong-toe sandals on the likes of Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Garner and Gwen Stefani as well as from brands including Gianvito Rossi, Yeezy and Balenciaga.
In addition to her title as an Angel, Alessandra Ambrosio has appeared in ad campaigns for Schutz, Jordache, XTI Shoes and Swarovski, among other brands. The Brazilian model also launched her own swimwear line, Gal Floripa, last year with her best friend Gisele Cória and sister Aline Ambrosio.
