Forget strappy sandals, now Sigerson Morrison are making strappy boots

Sigerson-morrison-strappy-boots

“These sexy, strappy boots speak volumes about your adventurous sense of style,” says Zappos. Well, that’s certainly one point of view, isn’t it?

As for us, we just wish this current fixation on boots with open toes and lots and lots of straps would just DIE already. Knowing our luck, these would leave our pasty white legs covered in the impressions of all those straps, although, given that these are amongst the very last things we’d choose to spend $1694 on, that’s not a problem we’re likely to have to face anytime soon.

What about you, though? Are you starting to come round to the idea of boots that are of no use whatsoever when it comes to keeping your feet and legs warm and dry, but which will help with that “adventurous sense of style” Zappos mention? Do tell.

    I have no love for these boots. Totally pointless and uggh, not good for winter andnot good for summer. What are they good for? Besides being ugly and a watse of money?

    They look like the shadows that blinders cast in film noir movies…only way less sexy. But it’s been said…they’re useless in every sense of the word.

    Oh dear, I’m going to have to disagree with you about footwear again! I’d definitely wear these in summer (if I could afford them).

    I think they’re hot.
    Too expensive and completely useless as boots, but hot nonetheless.

    I think they could do without the peep toe, but otherwise I like them. Of course, I live in a climate where the weather seldom calls for real boots, so it’s fine to wear something like this that might be impractical elsewhere.

    Funny, I like them, even if they’re totally useless and will make my legs look like I’ve tied them up with string. I can’t wear them though. I have such small toes that they don’t come anywhere near the opening of peep-toes or open sandals.

    I think they’re kind of cool.
    But wouldn’t go so far as to actually buy and wear them.

    I am horrified to admit I (dear God help me) somehow find myself liking these boots. I know it’s wrong, I just can’t help myself. Kind of like having a thing for the wrong guy, I suppose…
    Fortunately, I can’t afford them — that’ll keep me honest and out of fashion jail.

    I agree that boots with open toes and random cut-outs are a bit of a conundrum, but there is also such a thing as “summer boots”. They are boots with small tiny patterns cut out all over – usually things like tiny leaves, flowers, etc. They look great since they are still boot-looking, yet they are also suitable for warmer days and allow you to wear that skirt-and-boot outfit in the middle of May.

    I actually love the boots, they are actually pretty sexy.
