What I am specifically speaking of is the disaster of a combination as exhibited by Mariah Carey that appeared on www.perezhilton.com Wow, is that no good! The whole leggings/tights the same color as the boots with the most neutral and boring of outfits just isn't nice. And, the boots appear to be too big or of a length that just don't look right.
I get that boots like this were produced by a number of designers. They have the potential to be great. But, please, make sure you pair them with an actual outfit and that they look like they fit you!
