Boots pretending to be shoes (and socks): Kurt Geiger Williamsburg boots

Kurt Geiger Williamsburg bootsIt’s been a while since we had to arrest a pair of boots for so brazenly disguising themselves and shoes.  It was the chunky ‘socks’ that gave it away here.  Let’s face it, they look nothing like boot uppers, do they?  Sadly there are still plenty of examples of this sort of thing around, but this pair is particularly offensive to our sensibilities because they are, well, ugly.  The chunky sole and the thick sock makes them look like something Victoria Beckham would go hiking in.

What do you think though?  Do you like this style of boot?  Do you think it’s acceptable for them to pretend to be shoes?  You can buy these for £95.20 (down from a whopping £390) at House of Fraser.

    They are so ugly no wonder they have to pretend to be something else or maybe they just love Victoria B. so much that they would do anything…

    Don’t like this at all! I never got the whole ‘shoes with socks attached’-trend.
