We're going to be generous here and assume that no horses were harmed in the making of these Nicholas Kirkwood ankle boots. It just looks like they were. It's actually goat fur that has been sacrificed to create these, though, and for that we say shame on you, NK: because as well as leaving a bad taste in the mouth, they also leave a burning sensation on the eyeballs as we try to imagine what we'd look like trotting along (because there's really no other way to walk in boots with fetlocks, is there?) in them.
Louisa Viaroma suggest wearing these with one of Christopher Kane's 'monkey' pieces. Now THAT would be an interesting outfit: the face of a monkey, the fetlocks of a horse and the fur of a goat. Interesting. Just… not in a good way.[Buy them!]
