If we've learned anything from Blair Waldorf, it's that tights are not pants. Leggings barely make the cut. However, maybe, just maybe, boots could be. Perhaps. Oh, alright, we can't get on board with that, either.

At Milan Fashion Week, Miuccia Prada sent her models down the runway with little in the way of pants, but with boots for days. Thigh high boots aren't exactly new, but normally we've seen them as either over-the-top sexy, fetish-type footwear, or as waders for fly fishing. These seem to land somewhere in between.

Thigh High Boots at Miuccia Prada

    This pair really reminds us of trying on our dad's waders as a kid. Look -- they require a garter to hold them up, and not the sexy kind.

    But then, we see these, and ... well, we're kind of on board. Maybe not with the long sweater/tiny shorts combo, but the boots are looking pretty cool.

    This brighter color combination definitely catches our eye, but we're really wondering how practical it is to have boots that require a belt.

    Whatever. Fashion doesn't have to be practical -- it has to get our attention. And boy, did this ever get ours!

We don't think these should be an excuse to go without pants -- seriously, how hard is it to just put on a skirt or some trousers? We're talking to you, Lindsay Lohan -- but, we can definitely see these paired with a dangerously short skirt or some skinny jeans. And a lot of attitude. What do you think?
