Be honest, now: when you read the title of this post, you really didn’t have high hopes of these boots, did you? There’s just something about the phrase “clear, thigh high boots” that makes you think they’ll probably be being worn with some kind of “Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman” inspired outfit, no?
Well, you were wrong about that last point, at least, because these ones are being worn with a skintight white body suit. Which isn’t a whole lot better, is it?
On to the boots themselves, though: they’re an over-the-knee style which comes in a transparent plastic. I’m trying to think of something positive to say about them here, but the most I can come up with is “they’re probably waterproof” and … no, actually, that’s it.
Oh. and there’s also an ankle-high version:
Now, I guess you could wear these with socks or tights underneath. It would mean you’d be able to get a different look every day, just by changing the colour of your hosiery, and that could be kinda cool. (Oh, look! I found something positive to say!) Worn with bare feet, though, as well as making me wonder about the, er, sweat factor, also reminds me of a girl I saw standing at a bus stop in Edinburgh earlier this week. She was wearing grey leggings with a pair of nude-coloured ballet flats, and, from a bit of a distance, she really looked like she wandering around outside in bare feet. It wasn’t just me who thought that either, because as we drove by, Shoeperman noticed me turning my head round to look at her and said, “You totally thought that girl was out in bare feet, didn’t you?” And she really did. I’ve made a mental note to only ever buy “nude” shoes with heels, for this very reason.
But I digress. If you wear these without any hosiery, you’ll look a little bit like you’re not wearing any shoes (and are walking on your toes). Does that sound like the look you’ve been waiting for? Well, as a shoe lover, the idea of shoes that don’t look like shoes is anathema to me, but if you love it, you’ll find plenty more images over at the Cheap Monday website.
Don’t forget to tell me what you think!
