Dress like a horse this winter with Nicholas Kirkwood’s scratched suede fur ankle boots

Nicholas-kirkwood-fur-boots

We're going to be generous here and assume that no horses were harmed in the making of these Nicholas Kirkwood ankle boots. It just looks like they were. It's actually goat fur that has been sacrificed to create these, though, and for that we say shame on you, NK: because as well as leaving a bad taste in the mouth, they also leave a burning sensation on the eyeballs as we try to imagine what we'd look like trotting along (because there's really no other way to walk in boots with fetlocks, is there?) in them.

Louisa Viaroma suggest wearing these with one of Christopher Kane's 'monkey' pieces. Now THAT would be an interesting outfit: the face of a monkey, the fetlocks of a horse and the fur of a goat. Interesting. Just… not in a good way.

[Buy them!]

    WHY? Why can’t there be just one shoe designer that doesn’t every once in a while make me want to scratch my eyeballs out? I thought Nicholas Kirkwood could do nothing wrong!

    This makes my skin crawl. Though not quite a much as the monkey dress.

    That shoe looks as if it might bite someone if not offered a carrot. I call Fug!

    I’ve always thought that heels looked like horse hooves and wondered why people enjoy turning a woman into a horse resembling creature. This just pushes the fetish farther.
