Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick Wear the Same Red Hunter Rain Boots on “Gossip Girl” Set!

It’s not very often that we come across unisex shoes, let alone seeing a man and a woman actually wearing that same pair of shoes!

So it was a rare sight last Thursday when Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick both wore what appears to be the same pair of bright red rain boots while on the set of “Gossip Girl”:

Which do you think is the most plausible situation as to why this happened:

(1) Were Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick given this same pair of red boots?

(2) Did they unknowingly pick up the same color of the same pair of boots when they went shoe shopping?

OR

(3) Did they go shopping together and picked out these red boots for themselves?

Logic is telling me that these actors most likely get their shoes for free, but I’m going to believe number 3 just because I like to imagine Blair and Chuck going shoe shopping together. Dorota carrying Blair’s shopping bags is in that fantasy too of course!

Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick’s red rain boots are these Hunter Original Gloss Boots:

They’re $125.00 at Zappos.

I tried looking for these over at the men’s department, but they didn’t have this color for men!

Can anyone please confirm if Hunter does make their men’s rain boots in Pillar Box Red? If not, then that means Ed Westwick is wearing women’s boots… but hey, as long as they’re comfortable!
