Ever wonder what high fashion stockings would look like a couple decades into the future? Well, we just got our first glimpse of it thanks to Alleles, a B.C. company that sells prosthetic leg covers. These covers come in every colour and pattern you could think of, and some even resemble lace.

“What we want to do is blur the lines between prosthetics and clothing,” said Ryan Palibroda, a co-founder of the company.

But even more impressively, the company’s campaign aims to make those with a lost leg appreciate their own beauty instead of concentrating on what’s been lost.

Let’s all just take a moment to gawk.

We know what you’re thinking: it looks so stylish that you wouldn’t mind splurging on one either. Clearly, it’s a masterpiece.

The leg covers are so beautiful and inspiring, they’ll even be sported by a few Paralympians in Rio this summer, like Vanessa Low (a German sprinter and long jumper).

As if Alelles wasn’t already winning everyone’s hearts thanks to their stylish products, they’re even beginning to design clothes to match their leg covers.

The price of a cover starts at around $300 CAD for the regular ones, and can cost a couple hundred dollars more to have one custom made. Worth it, right? Check out the video above to learn more about these fashionable leg covers.
