Alexander Wang mitre laced leather sock boots

Alexander Wang is one crazy kid, to be sure. Here, for instance, he’s married a built-up basketball shoe to a knee-high leather boot. He’s callling it a “sock boot” and charging £823 / $1,230.

We’d say more, but we really wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of anyone wearing these –  it could get painfull:

What do you think of them?

    I would maybe have loved these when I was 14,when I was a wannabe punk child.
    I’m no longer 14 though,and these are disgusting.

    I would love them, if only that boot part wasn’t there, and the sneaker part looked more bootish. As it stands, I just like them.

    If they didn’t have the ‘sock’ bit I’d buy them, I love the mix of punk and athletic. 😀
