Tamara Mellon, former Jimmy Choo designer and author of In My Shoes: A Memoir, launched her own eponymous label earlier this week, complete with apparel, footwear, and interestingly enough—a hybrid of the two.

Check out the all-in-one Sweet Revenge leather legging boots ($1995 at Net-a-Porter.com) pictured above, which Mellon accurately describes as "a thigh boot that pulls right up into a legging." No doubt they're a super stylish winter wardrobe addition that you can wear for years and years (as long as you don't gain weight), but we'd be remiss if we didn't ask these three questions (that everyone is probably thinking):

1) Since they're technically pants, does that mean you can only wear them once a week in public (for fear of being scorned for repeating an outfit too soon)?

2) How weird will it be to send them off to the cleaners each month, and the cobbler for new soles and taps each season?

3) How awkward will it be when you turn up at someone's home and they ask you to remove your shoes?

These are certainly things one should seriously consider before purchasing a pricey pair of pants-boots, but we went out on a limb and impulsively decided to treat ourselves a pair anyway. (Eek!)

Obviously we won't wear them to the airport—trying to go through security would be a complete and utter nightmare—but you have to admit, they will make getting dressed in the morning that much easier. All we have to do is pull on an oversize sweater, tee, or tunic, grab a pair of earrings, a necklace, and a bracelet or two, and step out the door.
