We all know that the 70s are a big trend for 2011. To pay homage to this classic era, fashion giant Prada is launching Mary Jane Boots. So what’s the big deal? Well, the calves of the shoe look like fake legs attached to a Mary Jane pumps. The boots are one-of-a-kind, appropriate for someone who likes to dress in an eccentric fashion.
The Mary Jane Boots are strap-ons sewn onto a long swath of leather – to cover the legs, giving an illusion of elongated legs. The Prada boots are made from red and nude leather, where the red is used to give the look of a Mary Jane pump, and nude to give the skin tone. The shoe gives the illusion of someone wearing high socks with red Mary Janes pumps.
Just like a typical Mary Janes shoe, this pair too has a block heel that measure 3.5 inches in height and square toes. To give a retro feel to the boot, an oversized button has been stuck to the front closure. The shoes will be exclusively available at Netaporter.com and will retail at $1,500.
