Boot Sock Jeans: The jeans that are also socks

As alarming as this bizarre hybrid of jean/sock may look at first glance, be reassured that these Jean Sock Boots, as they’re known, are not merely another Stuck Together Clothes Crime: they do, in fact, have a practical purpose, and that purpose is to allow you to tuck your jeans into your long boots without any unsightly overhang. We hate unsightly overhang.

A couple of points here:

1. Skinny jeans. Or even leggings. We know a ot of you seem to hate them, but they come into their own in this kind of situation, and can be worn with other forms of footwear, too.

2. What if you wear these to someone’s home, and they ask you to remove your boots at the door? Then your Jean Sock Boots will be revealed in all their Socks-Stuck-To-Jeans glory, and you’ll be forever known as That Girl The Fashion Police Came And Took Away That One Time.

These are the creation of Cindy Slater, who sells them via the Thirteen Denim line.

What do you think? Are these the answer to the “What kind of jeans to wear with long boots?” question? If so, you can buy a pair here, although we couldn’t find a price on the website.

    I know who’d wear them – Groucho Marx. He’d even rock them with no boots on. The rest of the world… Just no.

    What a waste of energy for those poor kids who are obliged to make those in factories.

    Point 3: What about slightly shorter boots? (The type that don’t quite come up to your knee.) Not catered for by these.

    My solution if you don’t want your jeans to look quite so clingy and leggings-y is the stirrup jean. I know the FP have called them in for questioning in the past, but this is where I think they come into their own! 😉

    With the current state of the American economy and the oil spill at the gulf I think people could help waste there money on something not so wretched.

    Some more thoughts:
    – You’d have to wash these jeans every day. (Who’d want to wear socks that have been inside high boots the whole day for a second time?)
    – Who thought the garish pattern of these socks was a good idea? I love striped socks, but these are just silly. The ones on the right are slightly better, but I still wouldn’t want to have a pattern like this peek out of the top of my boots.

    Come on, people, just buy some plain black knee-high socks, pull them over your jeans, step into your boots, and you’re done.
    So let’s not talk about these mutants again, shall we? 😉
