High-leg gladiator sandals. Have you been scratching your heads and wondering just how the hell you were going to keep on working that look throughout the winter, readers? Or were you hoping the end of summer would mean the end of all things “gladiator”, and now you’re cursing like a sailor as you look at the picture above and realise that no, they’re still around, albeit in a slightly different form?
These are Urban Outfitter’s ‘Lattice’ suede boots, and while they’re not “gladiators” exactly, they’re from the same family, we think. Yes, those are peep toes. And no, that’s not lining, you can see, that’s the model’s skin. Her poor, cold, goose-pimpled skin – or at least, it would be poor, cold and goose-pimpled if she had to live through the same kind of winters we do.
What do you think of these, folks? Do you agree with Urban Outfitters that they’re “awesome” in every way, or do you agree with The Fashion Police that they’re the next worse thing after high-leg gladiators?
