Now that Sasha Grey has portrayed Molly in a staged reading of William Gibson's Neuromancer, it's time for her to step up and portray a cyberpunk heroine on the big screen. Luckily, the fashion industry has her back. (Or legs.)

Fashion blogs have been pushing the meme that thigh-high boots are going "cyberpunk" lately, and this seems to originate with Fashionising.com, who included this paragraph in a roundup of recent boot styles:

Futurism/Cyberpunk: building upon the cyberpunk influences of recent years, some designers have thrown an element of dark futurism into the thigh-high boot mix. Particularly evident in the wound-and-bound effects of boots by Rodarte and Topshop Unique, this is a trend I expect we'll see more of in coming seasons.

Already, these "cyberpunk" boots have been seen on Twilight's Kristen Stewart (see picture) and Lindsay Lohan, among others. Here's a gallery of the boots most likely to plug your brain into cyberspace.

Kristen Stewart's sporting some serious Rachel Sklar hair (whatever you think of her, her hair is lush) in that pic, looks good on her.
