Hiking Sandals by DSquared2: not for hiking

Dsquared2 Hiking Sandals

Is there any hope for these sandals, readers? Could they ever be redeemed? Our officers did wonder if a change of laces might make a difference, but of course, that would still leave us with the padded ankle, bright yellow toe strap, and… the rest.

We’re forced to conclude, then, that these sandals are proof that the words “hiking” and “sandals” should not be used in the same sentence: or at least not in the same product description. We stand by that assessment, but if you disagree, you can head over to Shopbop, where these are currently available for $595.

    I think these shoes could redeem themselves by being a pale beige-y pink (almost nude) leather without the hideous laces, and the mesh. Or dark purple suade. Mmmm…

    My first thought was that these would be the perfect hiking shoes for Victoria Beckam.

    I think this in all affection, of course. 😀

    The blue padding makes it look comfortable. Ain’t crazy about everything else about it!

    The real question is can you really hike in them? I spend all day walking around New York City and I wouldn’t mind at all having a pair of heels that are good for the walk.
