The 'Francis,' a mesh and leather ankle boot by 3.1 Phillip Lim, was designed with the intention of creating an optical illusion for those who stare.
From the outside, the ankle boots look like black leather pumps being worn with fishnet tights, a little bit racy yet still very posh and mature. The wearer, however, is in on the secret that these are actually boots that cover the ankle and have a flesh-colored lining below the mesh and leather exterior. These would look stunning with denim, or any dark pants that feature the new, ankle-grazing skimmer length, keeping the wearer warm and cozy while looking alluringly vampy.
The mesh and leather ankle boot features an exposed zipper in the back.
