This is an interesting shoe; sporty, boot/hightop, and makes you feel like you should be getting in the ring not go run errands. I think you need to strike a balance of skin and fabric. I was not about to whip out shorts with these or wear leggings because I think I'd feel like my lower body is trapped in a footed onsie, I grabbed a maxi dress put a knot in it to create some balance. Boots, maxi, leather jacket and a baseball cap for some flava. And I'm out the door.
