What’s life without a beautiful pair of shoes, right? Actually, the question should really be: What’s life without a beautiful pair of “naked” mesh shoes? Or more specifically, mesh boots, designed by none other than Yeezy himself.
Recently, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner were both spotted wearing Yeezy Season 3 mesh boots, in what will forever be referred to as “the naked shoe” trend, so you know it’s gotta be good. Think all the accessibility of a sleek, streamlined ankle boot and all the fun of our current obsession with everything mesh — and voila! — the trend of trends.
Gigi chose to rock her black mesh boots in a coordinated all-black ensemble, complete with a box bag featuring yellow-gold hardware, some serious statement sunnies, and a black quilted bomber.
Kendall on the other hand, chose to wear her white pair with fishnet socks, cuffed light-wash jeans, and an oversized gold jacket with black shearling accents.
The trend feels elegant while still remaining playful — I mean, can you imagine the shoe with a pair of crazy socks?!
This is the look for anyone who wants the appeal of a lightweight, sheer shoe but doesn’t want to commit to sandals. And whether you’re wearing the shoes with sweatpants, boyfriend jeans or a leather skirt, there’s not really a wrong way to go. With such a clean silhouette and lightweight feel, these babies can go from day to night, literally.
