Unfortunately, fur-covered boots are nothing new. Somehow, they seem to have snuck their way back into fall deliveries, despite your thoughts on fur. After some time spent in the fashion industry, things startle me, but occasionally I see something so bad that I can’t help but stare at it. As frightening as these Saint Laurent Goat Hair Ankle Boots are, I couldn’t look away from my computer screen when I found them.
This sheepdog look will startle innocent bystanders and leave them thinking that you possibly have small animals tied to your ankles. (And you do, sort of.) In addition to that, one of my many concerns with this boot is cleanliness. No matter the street, sidewalk or floor upon which you want to wear these boots, they will be ruined in a matter of seconds. My next concern is the studded, wraparound embellishment. It’s half covered by the goat hair, and because some hair is peeking over, it basically looks like my hair when I wake up in the morning: a disheveled mess. On top of that, I can’t think of a single thing in my closet (or in my endless Internet closet) that I could pair with these boots to justify them. No jeans, leather pants or leggings could make these boots work for me.
But don’t let my feelings stop you! If you wish to scare young children away, definitely grab a pair at Net-a-Porter for $1,995.
