Back in the summer of '07, Mary Kate Olsen landed on many a worst dressed list by wearing the couture version of these S&M inspired, knee-high gladiator sandals. A year later, they're creeping into mass retail stores and at Urban Original, where you can grab this pair for just $38. Chicas, didn’t we learn the first time? Torture doesn't pay.
Ever had the urge to wear moccasins and gladiators at once? Someone seems to think so. Us? We say some combos are
just plain wrong.
Aren't straps supposed to decorate the foot? These gladiator-inspired sandals do just about the oppos--oh wait...apparently we're supposed to love this look. Hooray for straight-jacket heels!
Are we relieved that women are wearing Uggs less frequently in the summer? Yes. Is it ok to replace them with sandals bearing suede ankle straps? Absolútamente not.
We'll take a second look at any pair of 4.5-inch stilettos, but this one's getting a double take for far different reasons. Simply heinous.
"Parisian chic" our a--! We're not falling for the French aesthetic here...it's just another Roman holiday gone wrong.
The average day finds PETA looking rather extreme in their animalistic stances, but we imagine they'd be pretty spot-on in their reaction to Bebe's Tatiana Leather Knee-High Gladiator Sandals: how many baby snakes had to die to make these hideously scaly straps?
Part of us--a teeny-tiny, pequeñito part--spotted these Stuart Weitzman knee-highs and thought, "Hmm, gold...that might not look so bad." Then the rational part of our mind won. Thank you, common sense!
