Would You Wear These Boots?

10/18/2006 at 05:00 PM ET

In all of our shopping, it’s the rare item that makes us pause and ponder its wearability. Swinging 60’s favorite Biba recently re-launched and has already turned up on stars such as Jennifer Lopez. And Sienna Miller and Lindsay Lohan are already rocking gold boots. But at first glance, these Biba gold leather ankle boots, $745, remind us just a little bit too much of old Elton John costumes to blend into our wardrobes. Or are these actually a great way to dress up the boot/jean combo? Tell us what you think: Would you wear these boots?

Not for $745! Maybe for Halloween though. Very tacky if you ask me.

emily on

ew no.

Ajoya Speight on

Ew, No. Those boots are hidious. They are not attracting at all and are extremely tacky!

j on

the fact that JHO owns them really sums it up. i got a beautiful pair of donald j. pliner’s almost a year ago that are goldish/bronzy, but CLASSY. save these for the stripper types or those (jennifer lopez,seinna miller) who lack in taste, but certainly not the $$$.

Norah on

Looks like something Paris would wear…or a prostitute. The design of the boot is not bad, just change that puke colour!

Kaitlyn H on

these boots look like something you would see in auston powers goldmember

conchetta on

To jump off a build!!!

Amber on

I would wear those boots, but not for the price of $745.

I think you can wear them with just about any type of outfit, if you go by it the right way.

Andrea on

I wouldn’t pay two cents for those boots. Better yet, you couldn’t pay me to wear those boots. Hideous.

evelyn on

these are just dreadful and should stay in the 60’s

Stephanie - VA on

If I was a Solid Gold Dancer…

Kate on

Yes! Definately!

RT on

Good Lord!! If this is the direction the “fashion world” is headed, I think we are all in for some major trouble! Those boots have got to be some of the worst things I have ever seen.

Susan on

These boots are hideous. I would not wear them, they are way too flashy for my taste. I prefer a more subtle style. Maybe a hot, young actress with the right dress could wear them…

AnnieM on

Does Gary Glitter know you all stole his boots! Hideous!

Beth on

Figures that someone that can’t spell definitely, would wear these boots! YUK!

Figures that someone that can’t spell definitely would wear these boots! YUK!!!

They are hideous alone…but with the right pair of jeans they could be redeemed and be, let’s say, “ok”. But at that price, they better do a lot more for me than just dress up my outfit.

"Magic" on

No, I wouldn’t wear does boots they are ugly. I don’t think that some one would.

dawn blagborne on

only if they were free…

Sonya on

I like the design but not the color..I’d buy them if it came in black.

Hyacintha on

I’d love to have golden shoes, but not with such heels. Sienna’s shoes are really gorgeous and I’d love to have them!

Wendy on

What in the Parliment Funkadelic, nothin but the dog in me smoke filled hazed was Biba thinking? And J. Lo? she must be focused on trying to get pregnant, because lately I just scratch my head and wonder “What the Fugees?” . That being said, if they were free, I would hawk them on ebay. Sure.

Joanne on

Hell No!

Vicki on


Stephanie on

Horrible, and VERY overpriced! These shoes look like something David Bowie wore in the 1970’s…

Mags on

The 80’s called- they want their boots back! No way would i wear these- unless of course I was in a costume- even then not for 745!

Mari on

In black hell yea… not in this colour though, and not for that crazy price.

Gabi on


Claire on

Domo Arigato, Mr. Robot-o.

abbie on

Not for that amount of money . . . and if they were silver I MIGHT wear them with the right pair of jeans, but that’s as far as I’d go!

eva on


luva on

these boots are ok…. but in a different color….but not for $750! r u nutts?

Brittany on

uuummmm….HELL to the no!!!!!

Kaitlyn on

The only problem I have with them, is the color. The gold looks tacky looking. I’ve worn gold in heals, and they are beautiful, but gold doesn’t look right on boots. I don’t think they would even look good with a nice pair of jeans or anything, because the gold is just awful and it would completely offset the whole outfit. However, if these boots came in black, yeah, I would wear them. The gold is just too tacky looking and too much going on for the boot. It’s ugly.

rachel on


Allie on

eww no… GOLD BOOTS??? omg fashion roadkill … maybe if they had a skinny black heel and were cuter

ginger on

Well what do we know about fashion!People as in stars Jennifer lopez know the trends! I think they look great

Jon on

The better question here is…What do you wear with these shoes? Answer: Sleeve-less str* dress cut mid thigh in a solid color. Big chandelier earrings and a low waisted belt in gold to match shoes. With a updated 60’s hair…Walking down the streets of NY City, letting everyone know that I paid $745 for those shoes!!!
