In this athleisure-obsessed world we live in, controversial sneaker trends have become the norm and oftentimes, they become mainstream (SO to dad sneakers). But the latest that I've come across might take the cake. We've all grown accustomed to over-the-knee boots, but are you ready for over-the-knee sneakers? Zara is. The brand is currently selling a pair of black fabric sneakers that literally come up to the thigh.

I should be less surprised about this trend, since sock sneakers and boots were (and still are) such a thing, but I can't help but be a little perplexed. What does one even wear with over-the knee sneakers? Certainly not jeans or leggings. So that leaves dresses, skirts, and shorts. It's certainly not a look I could pull off, but it's 2018 and anything goes, so if you like them, wear them. And if you really like them, you can get a pair by Givenchy or Stella McCartney for a cool $800-900.

Shop the new controversial sneaker trend that's making the round below (if you dare).
