fawn-hooves-leggings

Finally, a cheaper alternative to unicorn hoof boots.

These black and white hooves are attached to thigh-high leggings for the ultimate in fawn fashion and comfort. Etsy shop Chaos Costume notes:

“The construction of these hooves will be of high strength resin fused to a heelless 4 inch shoes. The arch is rigid plastic, and does not bend, so it keeps that beautiful silhouette, effortlessly.”

Apparently, the hoof shoes are so stable, you could even run in them. I’ll take their word for it.

You can even order the leggings and hooves in any color you wish. Check out the leggings with an entire costume after the break, along with some additional styles.
