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!

That’s just ridiculous. She must be sweatin’ up a storm in the Nether-region.

I would totally buy those boots if I had money to throw away like that. So more power to her if she, not only, can afford it, but have the figure to pull all off! Heck, I’m in the process of crocheting boots like that, albate it’s going to look more like a really high Uggs, in cotton. And sure, it will be at the end of summer when I’m finished. So I’m going to totally rock it in September! :-D

She has enough money…she should seriously consider hiring a personal stylist..a good one. But on the other hand, I guess if she likes it, who am I to criticize. I really try to live by the “to each his or her own” rule. Just my personal opinion..hire a personal shopper/personal stylist, Kimmy!
