Rick Owens’ hooded leather boots go undercover

Aha! An undercover agent, sent in by Rick Owens to try and infiltrate The Fashion Police and find out all of our secrets. Sadly, however, Rick’s going to have to try harder with this: we may not have realised there was a wedge boot under there, but we couldn’t help but notice that the person wearing them would look a bit like a shire horse, albeit one with a penchant for leather, so we were able to quickly take action to uncover the criminals.

Want to see what’s underneath the cloak?

Ta da!

Bit of a disappointment really, isn’t it? Kind of underwhelming. After all of that mystery, we were hoping for something REALLY bad, something SO ugly we’d actually feel glad the “hood” was there to hide it from unsuspecting eyes.

Instead, it’s a pretty average pair of wedge boots.

Huh.

(Click here to order these from The Outnet, where they’re currently selling for £463. We can’t imagine how they came to be on sale…)

    Well, I;m not blind yet, since I’ve seen this already in theoutnet.com but I didn’t want to upset you all!
    The funny thing is that these boots cost £1,030 (!!!???) and Outnet has them on a 55% discount, for £463.50.
    Still, I’m wondering who’s gonna buy them, since I wouldn’t wear them, not even if Rick Owens begged and payed me for…

    Are these leather cloaks for your lower legs being sold separately from the wedges? If not, it’s a case of stuck together clothing.

    But if they are a separate item, they are great. What a stylish way to cover comfortable but not pretty shoes! Genius.

    Those are actually peep-toe cut-outs boots…so the cloaks provide the necessary cover in case it rains or snows! Voila! Now we can have our cake and eat it!(NOT!)

    Ah, so I’m not the only one who noticed their PTBs. But I disagree with DRM’s other point: they might cover from above, but all the slush and puddles will still get onto the wearer’s feet. Well, serves them right for having such abominable taste in shoes! 😉
