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!

The thing that really bothers me is that it calls her a star. Of what? A reality show and a sex video

Kim has lost her looks since she had her baby so maybe its time for her to retire from trying to always be in the spotlight and concentrate on just being a mom and a housewife….she always looks raggy-n-haggy…..

Okay, the only question that comes to mind is how do you clean them. Because honestly leather near a vagina, there is going to be a smell lingering around…….

I do like Kim. It’s sad that others hate her so much, I would think she would get depressed reading all this hate. It seems to me she is trying to prove that she can get her body “back” after having a baby. Most celebrities do this, their job is to look “good” even if that means doing it with unhealthy habits. The problem I have with this family is, and I think it comes from their mother, is that they all want the spotlight. They all want to be noticed. So posting pics of yourself every day in these ridiculous outfits allows people to keep talking about her. Does anyone know, does this family donate ANY of their millions to any charities?? Alot of celebrities do this as well, giving back to their community. Just curious…

How does this woman have a clothing line when she has no fashion sense at all?
