Alexander McQueen’s spats-inspired ankle boots come complete with socks


I almost called The Fashion Police when I found these boots at Far Fetch yesterday, and assumed the socks shown in the picture were actually attached to them. As it turns out, though, that’s not the case, and the socks are just provided with the boots, for the benefit of anyone who struggles to know what kind of socks go with a pair of black boots. I’d call them “free” socks, but given that you’ll pay £720 for the lot, you possibly won’t feel like you’re getting TOO much of a bargain. Nice thought, though, Alexander McQueen!

Anyway, the socks are removable, and so are the “spats”, actually: as you can see from the image above, you can add or remove them at will to change the appearance of the boots. I’m not adverse to the look with spats attached, but the ankle boot on its own is just too ordinary for me to want to pay £720 for. If you would, though, you can buy yourself a pair here.


  • I think that’s actually quite an interesting idea, the whole “two boots for the price of one”. except, in my price range, it’s more like “two boots for the price of maybe 6 pairs of shoes”.

  • Hi,

    Have you any idea where one could possibly find the Alexander McQueen thigh boots featured on Harper Bazaar August issue 2009 UK addition with Rachel Weisz.

    Checked on his website and net a portor and found nothing…..
    If you have any idea please let me know.

    Kind Regards,
