Boot Love: Over-the-Knee

If you kept up with Fashion Week, you’d notice the range of new trends from sparkling dresses to mod styles. Something that caught my eye in particular was the over-the-knee boots, such as these from Fendi’s Fall 2014 show:

If you look closely, you’ll realize that these are not thigh-high boots, but, more accurately, sneakers paired with seamless, relaxed-fit (definitely not body-hugging) thigh-highs.

Not to mention that the following pair seems to have…could those possibly be…knee-pads?

It’s not just Alexander Wang that’s putting a little extra “oomph” in over-the-knee boots. Even celebrities like Ciara are starting to wear these unique over-the-knee looks, here created by Chanel:

Check these out—not thigh-high, not sneakers, but some kind of over-the-knee hybrid. In your opinion, are these hot…or are they not?
