We could totally Kaffe Fassett those

Knitted. Boots. Made of a fine strand of leather. $4,100.

Huh. Wouldn’t those be scrunchy socks in no time? The designer’s gold button will help pull those right down.

Yeah, I did. I looked. 1 mm “yarn” is as fine as I could find but you’d want a longer skein of it than I was finding on Etsy. Kind of a fun idea, though, and leather slipper bottoms are easy to find.

What I want to know is, how does it look where they ran the ends in and does it feel okay to walk on them?

Good grief! Those sure are something. And what on earth does “Features a biodegradable leather” even mean? Isn’t leather biodegradable?

No. Nope. Nada.

They are unlined, so I’d expect scrunchy socks, too. Apparently biodegradable leather means it is natural and unprocessed. And the care notes: protect from heat, light, and rain. So where can you wear them? Seems body heat and perspiration alone would degrade them. I love interesting boots and shoes, but nope. Although tempted to bookmark it to check back and see if there are any reviews. Happy end of the year!
