TikTok is trying to implement the “jeans boots” trend

These boots were made to gape.

Fashionistas are chopping up their denim and using the slashed pant legs to make “denim boots” in a mysterious new trend.

A bizarre take on leg warmers but with a denim twist, the Frankenboots have apparently taken over TikTok, where the hashtag #JeansBoots has over 1.9 million views. The Post can also confirm multiple real life sightings in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

The DIY boots are inspired by Kalda’s $553 “upcycled” bux denim jean boots recently worn by style-savvy Julia Fox and supermodel Elsa Hosk, whose sultry Instagram pics garnered 146,000 likes.

A TikTokker shared a tutorial on how to copy the former Victoria’s Secret Angel’s look for less money, which drew over 1.6 million views and confused commenters.

The video posted by Swedish influencer Amanda Engstrand shows her measuring a pair of knee-high boots against her jeans before cutting off the pant legs. She then carefully drapes them over the boots and tucks in extra fabric at the top before strutting down the street in a micro mini.

Commenters were amazed at the DIY getup – which gave one person the nickname “Joots” – with responses like “Omg slay,” “Nailed it,” and “obsessed.”

Another 28-second clip posted by Gen Z fashion site Nelly.com shows a similar hack demonstration, this time he marks the jeans with a ruler before cutting off the legs. The willowy brunette then models the boot creation with a mini denim skirt and white corset.

“Love,” explained one commenter, while another said, “I’m going to try that in a minute.”

Another risk taking seamstress showed up similarly using scissors to her jeans and modeled the homemade outfit with a similar tiny denim skirt.

While the headscratch trend has only recently taken TikTok by storm since it was launched by Hosk in June and Fox in July, Icelandic footwear brand Kalda debuted the denim boot design last year as part of its FW21 collection .

Of course, it’s not the first time that TikTok has prompted fashionistas to take a trend for a test drive. Countless shoppers have blamed the platform for opening their wallets to everything from fashion to kitchen essentials, with the popular catchphrase “TikTok made me buy it.”

Last year, a $60 pink Zara slip dress sold out thanks to the hype surrounding the ‘Tok, while hordes of budget-conscious consumers flock to Costco hoping to snag designer duds at a discount.
