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!

So much improperly fitting leather. She should really start dressing for her shape instead of pretending she’s a tall, lanky supermodel.

She looks like 10 lbs of potatoes stuffed in a 5 lb bag!

quit paying attention to useless people like The KARDASHIANS & Ciara and revert back to talented ones like the Cast of the movie Winter’s Tale

How dead cow does a person need on at one time?

Sarah on

Sigh. This woman has developed the absolute worst style over the past couple of years. She constantly chooses tacky outfits that don’t flatter her body. Just because it’s an expensive designer brand doesnt necessarily mean it looks good!

So many haters. If you dont like her, dont click. Its not like she wrote the article herself.

I think the legging boots are odd and I don’t think they should be in very many people’s wardrobes, but damn, she looks good. Her body looks good!

Hockeymom on

Enough of the leather and fur already?
Isn’t this the same Kardashians who did a spread for PETA?
You can be stylish without being cruel to animals!

Since it got her picture in People Magazine-she knows what she’s doing.
