Pointless Footwear: Peep toe thigh high boots

Emilio Pucci lace-up suede thigh-high bootsWe would love these boots by Emilio Pucci were it not for the peep toe.  And you see that opening in the lacing over the foot part?  Sadly it’s a real opening.  And that is why we are throwing them in Fashion Police jail: for being utterly pointless.  When can you wear thigh high boots with an open foot and peep toe and not have hot legs/cold feet/wet socks.

Someone must have been buying these though, as they are sold out in all but two sizes.  If you can think of a good time to wear these please tell us.  And if you have a spare £1,375 and want to buy one of the few remaining pairs, they are available at Net-A-Porter.

    They’d look better in black. Add some stripy thigh highs, and good to go(without the peep toe, of course. They don’t look too warm, so maybe in summer, when it’s not too warm? Not me, of course, but someone tall and able to walk bin deathtraps.

    They’re ok but they look like they belong on a hooker. Sorry to any hookers out there.

    How long does it take to lace yourself into these? I’d say too long.
