Kim Kardashian Wears Leather Legging Boots Under a Leather Skirt (Because Why Not)

When we first saw the “Sweet Revenge” legging/boot hybrid from Tamara Mellon‘s debut shoe collection under her own name, we had two key reactions. First: Wow, the person who buys those is seriously brave. And second: How would one style those, exactly? Leave it to Kim Kardashian to address both of those points in her uniquely special way.

If the star wasn’t so faithful about documenting, in minute detail, her #OOTD every day on Instagram, we might have thought these were just knee-high boots under her second-skin ruffled and ruched Givenchy skirt — but no, they go all the way to her waist. While this leather-on-leather layering might have been a creative way to beat the cold and snow at New York Fashion Week, it’s a truly bold choice for L.A., where temperatures have been in the mid-70s all week.

Mellon, the former chief creative officer for Jimmy Choo, described her buzzworthy $1,995 boots as “a thigh boot that pulls right up into a legging.” They’re 100% leather and come in sizes S/M or M/L. And we are feeling incredibly sticky and chafe-y just thinking about cramming those under a tight leather skirt. But Kim doesn’t appear to be sweating it (so to speak), so more power to her.

What do you think about Kim’s unique styling choices? How would you wear those boots? Would you wear those boots? Tell us below!

Wait a second–these $2000 boot/legging things come in S/M and M/L?? How does that work–they’re SHOES?!

Her kitty probably smells like a bag of rotted onions.

Please someone let her know that clothes come in adult sizes. She can stop trying to shove herself into kid sizes. She must store a spatula and cooking spray or butter in her closet to get in and or out of each outfit.

Why does she buys things that are too small for her?
