The Obscene Boot by Jeffrey Campbell: leather waders by any other name

jeffrey-campbell-waders

Just to be clear, here, “Obscene Boot” isn’t our name for these leather waders – it’s apparently Jeffrey Campbell’s own assessment. Not that he’ll get much argument from us, mind you . They may not be “obscene” exactly, but hey, if the shoe thigh high boot fits…

Waders are technically “hot” at the moment, and of course, we have Prada’s Autumn/Winter 09 collection to blame or thank for that, depending on your point of view.

What IS your point of view, though? Do you love these? Or are you as un-enthused by them as we are? (And pairing them with a pair of acid wash jeans? Nice work, Karmaloop!)

    There are designers who cannot hold back from showing us their chops.

    I can’t help associating waders with Boris Johnson:

    I think it’s perfect, if you are a biker. Or a cowgirl.

    Isn’t this a case of stuck-together?

    These boots are just great – now, does anyone know the safe way to remove vomit from my keyboard?

    Chaps, black leather, and boots are supposed to be sexy. They must have seriously worked really hard to make all three look so nasty.

    If your shoes look like cowboy chaps, they’re a bad idea. Just sayin.

    (Hits head on desk) Why, why, WHY are these people so delusional to think that we’d actually buy these?

    Better yet, I’m wondering why they’re listening to their nightmare’s ideas for fashion.

    TERRIBLE! I wouldn’t wear such a combo, or event the individual items, at gunpoint.
