    Kim Kardashian stepped out yesterday in an ensemble that left us scratching our heads.

    There are just so many unanswered questions surrounding her statement-making leggings boots: How far up do the boots go? Are they attached to the skirt? Are they difficult to walk in? Are they super expensive? Is it sweaty in there? And, most importantly, do we like this look?

    Of course some of our questions were easily answered once we realised Kimmie was rocking Tamara Mellon’s Sweet Revenge leather leggings boots. Yes, they’re full leggings attached to boots. No, the skirt is not attached. And you can buy them at for £1,595.

    We’re still not sure about the ease of walking, the sweatiness or our overall opinion on the look. But we do know that Kim’s Instagram commenters are decidedly divided.

    One follower wrote: ‘She used to have such good dress sense! Then Kanye came along!’ Another commented: ‘Don’t ever wear this again. Horrid.’

    While the look would probably be better served without the leather pencil skirt (there is such thing as too much leather, Kim!), we have to applaud her for taking a risk.

    What do you think of the controversial look? Tell us below!
