Toeless hold ups really are a wonder of the legwear world. One of our most requested items here at UK Tights are hold ups without a toe. This is because they are great for very specific looks and to wear with specific outfits. So what are toeless hold ups and why are they so important?
What Are Toeless Hold Ups?
Toeless hold ups are exactly what you might imagine them to be. They are any hold ups that are free from material around the toe. That means they can either have a silicone strip around the ball of the foot to keep your hold ups in place or they can have a loop or thong like ring of material to go over your big toe. Either way you are able to wear these toe free items confidently without worrying about slippage.
Why Should I Invest In Some Toeless Hold Ups?
Toeless hold ups are ideal for those that want a very specific look and might want to wear really specific shoes. If you have a peep toe shoe or a strappy shoe that needs to sit between your toes, the best thing to do is go for a toeless item. Toeless tights have been around for a very long time, but some people really don't like full length hosiery and would prefer something like hold ups.

So of course, there are plenty of designers that want to bring you the best of both worlds, with the versatility of toeless legwear and the sexiness of a hold up design. So why do we not see more of these great garments out there?
Why Aren't There More Toeless Hold Ups Around?
Toeless hold ups have not always been around, but why not? They are pretty popular, even if they are quite niche, but not many designers have tried to make them before. The reason being, is that they are incredibly difficult to make. The two openings at the top and the bottom of these hold ups mean that when you knit these items, they are really rather difficult to make without the garment coming unraveled. Special equipment is needed to make these and it is an expensive and tricky thing to get right. But because the demand is so high for these wonderful items, some designers have gone ahead and trusted their gut anyway. The result is a wonderful collection of items that we absolutely from many designers and fashion houses. Fashion hold ups are enjoying even more variety than ever before and we absolutely love how the amount and the variety out there.
