Style on Trial: Clear boots by Cheap Monday

OK, everyone, we need you to stop looking at the model’s highly visible nipples, and concentrate on her feet for a minute, because we’re actually here to talk about her boots. (Can we also talk about The Shiny, do you think? Or will that make her even angrier than she is already? Why is she so shiny, though? Are the plastic boots trapping heat and sending it straight to her head? Because it’s not like her sweater is offering much in the way of coverage, is it?)

These boots are being described by most commentators as “rain boots”, presumably because they’re plastic, and probably waterproof. Other than that, however, they’re as different from rain boots as it’s possible to be, given that they’re thigh high with a stiletto heel. There’s also an ankle-high version:

(Warning: there are more nipples under the jump, so if you’re hoping to remain a nipple-free zone today, don’t say we didn’t warn you..)

See-through boots, nipples, shiny forehead: it’s the Cheap Monday look, everyone!

What are your thoughts on these? A great solution for a rainy day, or just a rather odd way to make you look like you’re walking around in your bare feet? You decide.

    What worries me is if your feet sweat in the boots will a rather fetching condensation pattern occur…

    I hate them as they’re presented by the brand.

    I love them here: http://www.fashionising.com/shoes/b–Rain-boots-5121.html
    I’m doubting on the hugely oversized blazer, but I like them worn on bare legs.. I’d add red nails, just don’t beat me up))

    But I must say the first picture is the greatest example why so many men say they hate fashion..(

    The ankle boots look REALLY uncomfortable…
    I like the general idea, though. But I would wear them with socks. I have LOTS of beautiful patterned socks, so I would get a new pair of shoes every day. 🙂

    About the general look: Another good example that modeling isn’t quite as glamorous as people believe. You thought they’d make you beautiful for the runway, girls? Nope, you’ll have to go out there without make-up, but with shiny skin and greasy hair. And visible nipples. Come on, you wanted to be a model, didn’t you?
    I wonder how Cheap Monday got the idea that this look would tempt anybody to buy their clothes…

    These clearly aren’t aimed at regular humans. These models both have horns, cleverly disguised by their hair, but the hair still pokes up a bit on both sides. Subtle marketing to the demonic that live among us.

    I don’t want to know how sweaty your feet must be when you take them off at night. What with the fact that you have to put your bare feet in them.

    I think the small ones with socks might look kinda cool. Imagine a new boot everyday, just change your socks! 😛
