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!

This woman needs to disappear for a while and do some thinking about what she has been and is doing in a place AWAY from her family. I have no respect for her whatsoever.

She looks really uncomfortable!

Well, there’s another 30 seconds of my life I’ll never get back…can’t believe I read this stuff about the most boring, self sbsorbed, uninteresting (well, except for her fashion choices) person out there.

Oh that’s never been done before! “Not”!!!!!!!!

She looks fantastic!!!! You all need to stop ragging on her! If you don’t like her then why do you read articles that are about her? Get a life!

Sammi on

Just proves that all the money in the world doesn’t buy good fashion sense.

She must have the smelliest cooch on the planet.

I didn’t know she posted pictures of her outfits EVERYDAY on instagram…WOW. Might have been a smart move if she was wearing items from her clothing line to promote it but something tells me she’s not wearing anything from the Kardashian Kollection…lol. As for this outfit, that’s a LOT of leather and I can’t imagine that being comfortable at all (one word cimes to mind….chaffing)!! The skirt is unique and could be pulled off nicely if it were paired with the right shoes and top. Kim has said that she’ll get Kanye’s approval for her outfits and that she’ll change into something else if he doesn’t like what she’s wearing…lol he’s no Tom Ford so she needs to stop listening to him and go back to the stylist she had before they started dating.
