I also don’t like the boots at all. I wonder if true taste does indeed change? Or, is this look less appealing or not at all, to any generation older than what the designer might have had in mind? Or is it simply that different peopl have different tastes?…Great hair and chunky knit, nevertheless.
At first glimpse I wasn’t sure if those were boots or flats with socks. Now I know they are not socks but I’m not sure if they are over the knee sneakers or over the knee boots. Whatever they are they are amazing http://www.mimosasandme.com
Fun look, I like how the definition of “boots” and “shoes” and what can be worn with what (e.g. kneehigh socks with pumps is no longer taboo) is melting away, and new cool (and comfy!) looks are coming in!
So smart! I got used to thigh-high boots made from leather (real or fake) or suede and mostly with high hees. This sporty synthetics one is really refreshing!
I guess we’ll see loads of interpretations from mass-market brands in the nearest future.
Rick Owens taps into our futuristic imagination. He’s well known to pimp out something so basic as a sneaker and morph it into something Avant Garde. It has a certain TRON and STAR WARS effect. The FUTURE is here! In all honesty, this look is PG as opposed to his show yesterday…NC17. Personally I would have had all the models wear tube socks….a la Red Hot Chilli Peppers. But I’m modest….while accepting. I mean indigenous tribes, like the Huaorani live 24/7 a la Rick. Rick WE heart you….hope the models didn’t catch a cold. It is winter…. =)
