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!

it amazes and me how she can take such expensive clothes and make them look so cheap.!.. why is she famous?.. she’s nothing..

If she were too fat then you would see her stomach bulging above the waistline of the skirt. Everyone that is talking negatively about her is just jealous. Whether you like it or not she is a very successful business woman and has done very well for herself. If people really thought that badly of her then the paparazzi wouldn’t be following her everyday. Get over yourselves and grow up.

How do you go to the bathroom with that? she probably is wearing a nappy on that fat butt of hers..

I’m not a serious animal rights advocate or anything, but when you see this you can’t help wondering how many animals had to die so that she could shove her fat self into such a ridiculous getup. NO ONE would look good in this outfit, let alone Kim Kardashian.

GP Stoll on

That’s pretty dam fugly.
