Lenny Kravitz's Knee-High Wedge Boots: Love 'Em or Hate 'Em?

Splash News Online

Taking the leap from skinny jeans to full-on leather pants is a bold move for any man, but Lenny Kravitz took it one step further on Thursday, tucking his leather pants into knee-high wedge boots! Proving that fashion truly has no gender, the rocker was snapped leaving his N.Y.C. hotel confidently donning the wedge leather boots with a drapey cowl-neck pullover and a cross-body man purse! And while it has become acceptable for any man to wear designer denim or even obsess over his hair products, it seems that Lenny may just be standing alone in this bold sartorial effort — for now. Tell us: Is he on the heels of the next wave of men’s fashion or has he gone too far with his high-heeled boots? Vote below! Justine Harman

Limited-minded you are. Like robots.What Hollywood say to this is considered to be a reality. Only in a bra is specially designed for women.The rest is a matter of taste.Go Lenny!Let people start thinkingTHINKING!

Why is it acceptable for women to dress very butch but the men cannot dress a little feminine? I like his style. It is very fashionable and certainly better than an unshaved, fat, grubby outfit including ill-fitting sweats. I’m glad he has the nerve to be different.

The boots have nothing to do with sexuality. While you’re pretending to be all open-minded over there, why don’t you drop those assumptions and realize Lenny’s amazing look is about fashion labels not about societal ones.

There isn’t actually anything wrong with the outfit. Gonna take a while for people’s minds to re-adjust, if he was wearing the boots with skinny jeans, t-shirt and a more traditional ‘man bag’ it’d be alot easier to for the SHEEP out there to get there heads around.
The shops dictate what items are for which gender and then you’re stuck with it. There must be SOME knee boots with low to mid heels (other than cowboy boots) that men are able to wear/buy??

Aww quit the hatin’! Lenny would look good in a potato sack! The man is sex on legs and looks damn good for his age.

All men must have the same clothing freedom like women today. Of al woman must stay off from pants ( boyfriends jeans ) blazers, costums, sneakers etc, except they are lesbian. Eeven knie-high boots are in recent historie only menstuff.

Great! It is already time, to fight back for gender equality – also in questions of fashion! Why should a man not be allowed to wear heels? Because they are feminin? Than why so many girls are wearing male shoewear (wihtou heels)? To every girl who is giggling, I suggest, to visit an ordinary shoe store and to visit the menĀ“s section and to ask yourself: would you buy any of those shoes for fashion purposes or just, to avoid, running barenaked?
