7 for All Mankind Stirrup Jean: Love It or Hate It?

So there's been buzz that the stirrup is back, but I'm still convinced that it's all coming from the denim companies, trying to get us to buy another new pair of jeans. Take a good, hard look at these 7 for All Mankind Stirrup Jeans, $168, and ask yourself: is the stirrup jean really, truly going to make a comeback? I think not.

as a child of the 80s, the stirrup cannot, and i mean CAN NOT, make a serious come back. i handled and embraced the return of the short leggings and then skinny jeans, but this is where i must draw the line. the material under the foot is the most annoying thing. if we are going to be forced to look at this, at least pair them with some lime green scrunchy socks.

Oh, dear god. It is NOT the early 90s, 90210 is no longer on our screens and trousers like have long been banished from my mind. Please keep it that way.

Only if there were boots involved. I hated how the stir-up pant turned into some weird fashion statement for Grandmother's in the 80's. All I can recall are the truly awful ones in pastel colors.

God, No! What's next - big shoulder pads and frizzy bangs? I used to wear stirrup pants in 6th grade with a gigantic color block Esprit top. Yikes. Who'd want to bring that look back?

Hope not, but I've got to admit that I've bought some stirrup leggins for this argentinian fall :rotfl:

Im mixed on these. They would be great with boots, but they look terrible with the pumps!

this girl i used to work with never thought the trend died - every day with the stirrups and plastic payless shoes with the pleather stripped off the worn down heels, self-tanner oompa loompa shade(also, not washed off fingers), caked on makeup - just saw her the other day, same damn outfit, oh, the visual...... sooo fugly, the cut is terrible, even with boots. i can see why this was thought of for tucking into tall boots, but no way would i wear them......

holy crap - literally, i mean CRAP!! i thought we left all things stirrup dead in the 80's - along with mall bangs and excessively frosty makeup.

I wore these in the 80s, but they were soft stretchy fabrics, like leggings, not jeans. I can see how they'd be awesome with boots or booties, and a long top, but I doubt I'd actually buy a pair.

haha that's funny, I was in Norstroms's today and I saw them hanging up and thought "WTF!" I had to go over to check them out to make sure I wasn't seeing things. When I think stirrup I think fat women at walmart.

I could see it for keeping the jeans tucked into boots, but not to wear with heels like in the photo. UGH!!!!!

I saw a girl wearing very similar jeans to these just yesterday (stirrup and all) and let's just say if you are not of model proportions these look HEINOUS!!!

i agree with viva chica. they should only be used to tuck into boots!! jeans look awful when they are scrunched into boots and dont fit and are bunched up...ew. lol. but there are stirrup type things you can buy to put on jeans you have for wearing boots which i think is more versatile and alot cheaper!

OK, I could handle it when leggings came back around because they can be seriously cute with the right dress/top/whathaveyou, but ... NOT THE BLOODY STIRRUP PANTS!!!! Guh! They should pay us $178 to wear them.
