Kim Kardashian in Tamara Mellon's shoes

Kim Kardashian steps out in Tamara Mellon's leather-legging-cum-shoes

Kim Kardashian has taken one for the team, as the first celebrity to try out Tamara Mellon's unusual leather-legging-cum-boot boots. At least, Kim's the first celeb we've seen wearing them.

Called Sweet Revenge (no prizes for what inspired the name), the statement boots are a pair of leggings that end in a pair of stiletto boots, and are from the Jimmy Choo founder's debut solo collection.

Kim chose to pair the boots with a Givenchy leather skirt and Lanvin skirt, which has us worried that the reality TV star might be bringing back the skirt-over-trousers trend for 2014. We're not sure we're ready for the return of that look quite yet.

Tamara Mellon will no doubt be thrilled that one of the world's most photographed women has chosen to wear her shoes, but they're not proving popular with everyone.

When Kim shared a picture of her outfit on Instagram, her fans were quick to respond – and not all kindly.

Still, fashion favours the brave, right?
