They Come with an Invisible Plane and a Lasso

I love the idea of these kitschy transparent boots, but reviews say they’re poorly made. Still, I’ve fallen for the smokey ones:

If I didn’t mind visible, condensed sweat beading inside my shoes, I’d be all over those suckers. Ah well.

    I got a pair of ballet flats like the smoky ones at Walmart last summer for $3. I love them! I wore them all summer. Sometimes they get a little sweaty but they are remarkably comfortable. I’m not sure about a boot version though.

    How cute would those be with knee-high socks, though?

  • Eric Normand Says:

    I wonder if you couldn’t rig up a sweat drain at the bottom.

    function over fashion- i thought i knew you better!

  • maureen Says:

    That’s what black tights are for. (Or brightly patterned knee socks, as noted above!)

  • Kathleen Says:

    Really Maggie?

  • Megan Says:

    Hmm. But they do cover the toes, which would be the squidgiest sweaty part in my mind. I’d never have thought of it, but maybe you’re onto to something interesting. Shortlived perhaps, but still…hmm.

    You’re so much more practical than I am, Maggie. I would’ve bought them without giving the “Plastic Boot + My Leg = Greenhouse Effect” conundrum a single thought.

    Smoke would turn to mold green, down in my Southern neck of the woods. But, sigh, keep the fashion coming…

  • Joelle Says:

    Ah, you guys with toned legs.

    All I can think of is “sausage.”

    The point of boots is to hold all that flesh in!

    And hide it. Hit enter before I said that.
