Rihanna and Kim Kardashian Rock Vetements x Manolo Blahnik Waist-High Satin Boots

If thigh high boots just aren’t dramatic enough for you, what about over-the-hip shoes? The waist-high boots from the Vetements x Manolo Blahnik spring/summer 2017 collaboration have become quite the conversation piece. These shoes caused an online frenzy when we featured them last month, and they still continue to star in fashion discourses.

Since their debut on the runway, fashion critics questioned their wearability and impact on future collections. They feature a unique shoe silhouette, come with a hefty price tag and are available exclusively at Net-A-Porter. It takes a lot of guts and a fearless sartorial sense to pull off these daring shoes and only a few have made it happen.

Rihanna looked impossibly cool in the orange boots at the OVO Fest in Toronto last year. Always game to take a fashion risk, it’s no surprise that Rihanna totally rocked the controversial shoes. She styled them with a black Azzedine Alaïa crop top, denim shorts and a matching orange jacket from Fengchen Wang. Rihanna showed off a hint of skin as she folded down one leg of her boots. This simple styling trick also highlighted the silhouette of the shoes.

Kim Kardashian, on the other hand, made the black satin waist-high boots work for her petite frame. Clad in an all-black ensemble, it’s almost impossible to recognize her waist-high boots from Vetements and Manolo Blahnik. If you look closely, you’ll notice that she wore them over her leggings and made them look like a slouchy pair of pants. She styled them with a sheer long-sleeved shirt and a black puffer coat. She completed her ensemble with straight tresses and nude lips.

These pull-on satin boots feature pointy toes and smooth beige leather lining. They are part of an innovative collection exclusive to Net-A-Porter and are available in bright orange and bright pink satin.
