Now, before you all go thinking I done lost my mind over here, let me just assure you that this edition of Shoe Deja Vu does not feature shoes that are likely to grace the Shoeper Shoe Closet anytime soon. Oh, hell to the no. You see, as much as I’ve come to love high heeled gladiator sandals, and even to quite like the low-sided flat versions, this particular style just leaves me cold. Freezing, in fact.
But the fact remains: there are lots and lots of high-leg gladiator sandals around at the moment, so presumably someone must be buying them. (Who is it? Is it you?) And for the benefit of those “someones”, here are Anna Sui’s studded gladiator sandals (£420 at Net-a-Porter) and ASOS’s matching pair (£60). They’re not exactly the same, of course, and I don’t think anyone would be hard-pressed to spot which is the designer and which is the high street version, but teh style is similar enough that anyone interested in getting the Anna Sui look on a budget may be interested.
(Not me, though. )
No, not me either.
I love gladiators – when they are subtle. These are very much not subtle and therefore not for me!
I do own a pair of knee high gladiator sandals like the one that was seen on Mary-Kate Olsen in June 2008 and I love THAT look. As for this version, I not particular fond of because I think knee high gladiator are already a statement ( which is a BIG reason why I love them) but to ad all that drama to it makes it too much of a statement shoe.
