She’s always been adventurous when it comes to footwear and it seems Kim Kardashian has definitely taken a shine to these rather unusual shark lock boots by Givenchy.
The 31-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was spotted wearing the black version of the fold-over leather boots back in August, which cost an eye-watering $1,695, while stepping out with boyfriend Kanye West, and it seems she liked them so much she bought them twice.
These boots were made for walking: Kim Kardashian is pictured wearing the cream shark lock boots by Givenchy at the weekend (left) after donning the black pair during a trip to Honolulu back in August
Just weeks after wearing the black pair
with a matching leather skirt during a break in Honolulu, Kim was
pictured wearing the cream version of the boots during a shopping trip
in New York.
This time around Kim opted to wear the boots with a tuxedo-style black dress, knee length dress.
Her favourite pair The fold-over leather boots with chaps-style cover are priced at $1,695
Unfortunately the dress’s hem line fell just above the top of the boot, giving her a less than flattering look.
Kim has been upping the ante in the style department since she began dating Kanye and the rapper has been very vocal with her opinions about her outfits.
During a recent episode of her reality show, Kanye was seen advising Kim to donate several clothes from her wardrobe, remarking that the items were too ‘ghetto’.
He later told her that he would the clothes with new pieces, selected by his own personal stylist.
Kim has since listed the items on auction site eBay and plans to donate all proceeds of the sales to the Life Change Community Church.
‘I used to want everything short and low-cut and you really can't do it all…recently my style has become a little bit sleeker,’ she recently told Harper’s Bazaar magazine.
She also revealed that her first major purchase was a Prada backpack when she was 16 and admitted that her current favourite designers are Celine, Givenchy and Lanvin.
‘But then again I love mixing it with low-price point stuff, too.
'It's all about mixing and matching. You can't really have high-end designers for everything,’ she added.
