Boots-Pretending-to-be-Shoes by Beatrix Ong


These Beatrix Ong boots probably thought they were being very clever when they decided to pose as shoes, using a flesh-coloured leg to make the illusion even more convincing.

They’d probably have gotten away with it too, had it not been for the fact that the illusion isn’t even remotely convincing, and, actually, they just look like a couple of prosthetic legs. Handy to leave lying around the bedroom when you bring a new man home for the first time, we guess (How he’ll laugh!), but not much use otherwise.

It’s a shame too: we love the “shoes”.

    And, you know, that fact that only only about half the people in the world have legs similar to that colour!

    i was really surprised when i saw this – the writer hasn’t seen them in person. They are more of a dark grey colour and more monotone – not trying to look like a leg at all!!!

    sorry to disagree with everyone, but a mate bought them in the sale and I think she looks great in them :).
