Not a fan, they seem to faddish..
They make ones legs seem like huge elephant stems..

If I wanted the scunchy effect I'd probably wear boots and add heavy legwarmers on top of them..

i think the trend must have derived from streetwear/the current trend of denim and stacking... or the scrucnching near the ankle...
i think the sillhouette is odd but interesting... its perplexing to think that some women would want their ankle to appear larger then the rest of their leg

I love the white ones as well, and what is odd is that I normally hate white boots.

Scrunchy Boots, huh? I'm loving seeing (and even drawing) romantic ankle boots. Someone noted that this effect could be better acheived with heavy leg warmers paired with boots. Unless designers want to make femmes better able to tuck jeans into boots with bigger-leg boots, I'm not really feeling some of these. Some of these boots can look pretty lovely while others are pretty terrible. Some of the tops of these boots can be too chunky up top. I'm sorry... I'm not really feeling it with these boots being worn. And I have my issues as to what legs compliment these kinds of boots to look great. At least these are a little better than the overkilled Arctic boots and mukluks (I say overkilled as far as how cold Houston gets. It's not severely cold in colder times here, so wearing them here in H-Town is overkill unless it's really highs of 50-degrees or less here).

Maybe this trend catches on, or maybe not. Just not real sure about if this is a style to be excited about.

well
not every woman is preoccupied with flattering her leg
we see plenty of women that dress in larger shapes and proportions
