Sarah Jesica Parker in Miami

Sarah Jessica Parker has been hotfooting it across the United States of America these past few days, to attend the different launches of her new shoe collection in Nordstrom stores in almost every city.

And it appears she's found a novel way to show off her new designs: sheer, stirruped grey tights.

The actress chose to wear the hosiery for two separate appearances (we're sure they were clean pairs) in Chicago and Miami. While they certainly draw the eye to the shoe, we're not sure how enamoured we are with the look.

We know it's hard to dress at this time of year – tights make you too hot, you freeze in bare legs – but we thought we'd waved goodbye to the footless tights trend in 2006.

Or maybe this is what SJP was talking about when she told Ellen Degeneres last week that she never wears socks.

'I don't wear socks, I never wear socks even in the dead of winter,' the actress old the talk show host.

'I'm so short that I try to preserve a little bit of skin to show there is more to me than meets the eye.'
