Kim Kardashian Keeps Wearing 2017’s Hottest (and Largest) Boots

Today’s trends are bound to haunt our closets tomorrow. People splurge on of-the-moment items, only to fall prey to that “wouldn’t be caught dead in last season’s clothes” mentality, allowing those pieces to languish in their wardrobes like fashion ghosts once their time in the trend spotlight passes. Well, Kim Kardashian has a novel solution: just keep wearing them!

Kardashian took her kids to Las Vegas this weekend and stopped by Katy Perry’s concert residency at Resort World. She posed for a backstage pic with Perry, Sia, and Paris Hilton (a bit of a random but notable pop culture Mount Rushmore), but we were more keyed into what she was wearing than who she was with—most notably the fact that she had on the single hottest boot …from 2017.

Paired with a hot pink bodysuit from her own Skims line, Kardashian was wearing the near-legendary Manolo Blahnik collaboration boots from Vetements’ spring 2017 collection. Then seen as a subversive, insurgent brand, the collection featured collaborations with numerous labels including Levi’s and Rebook. But the higher-than-thigh-high Blahniks, with their almost comically oversized proportions, emerged as the most memorable garments. Footwear News named them the collaboration of the year, and everyone from Rihanna to Kardashian’s sister Kendall Jenner were spotted in them.

They seemed destined to serve as a definitive marker of a certain moment in fashion—and, yet, Kim keeps wearing them like they were just a versatile as a pair of Chuck Taylors.

She posted them to Instagram in 2019:
