Hosiery bunches, runs up, runs down, and squeezes all the wrong places. You can't climb trees in them and you can definitely forget dialing a phone with your feet. But no longer! (Really only for the last one). Amy Sedaris demonstrated a new product "from Japan" on Jimmy Fallon last night that her brother David Sedaris likes to call "panty toes."
The hosiery is like a toe socks hybrid, but sheer, and just as useless, except for weirding out talk-show hosts and large portions of his audience. Fair warning: Watch the video after the jump, laugh a lot, maybe even consider wearing them (with close-toed heels, please), but definitely do not try to google "panty toes."
