The Material Boy #347

Below: Givenchy's SS2010 Gladiator Sandals... which one is better? I am sure the price is also much 'better priced' than B Store's...

B Store Gladiator Lace-up Sandals

For those of you who cannot wait for Givenchy's Spring Summer 2010 gladiator sandals...or find them too loud (especially the gold version) for your taste, then this B Store Gladiator Lace-up Sandals could be the perfect alternative.

Sharing similarity in design with a mid calf height, but instead of buckles, this B Store version comes with a lace up binding. A cross between boots and sandals, in tan leather and grey suede. Pretty cool I must say. And costing only Eur 200 which I am sure is much much lower than Givenchy's.

So who wants these?!?!? On a second thought, are Gladiator sandals a thing of the past already? I know it irks me to see women wearing this shoe style. It's so overdone and overkill. But for men, can it still be relevant? One saving grace for B Store's version is it is a hybrid from boots, so perhaps you can argue it is a boot style sandals. 2 ways to argument a case....:-P just as long as you like them:-P what the heck!

I think it was long passed...:-P Unless the gladiator styles are not too gladiator looking, if you know what I mean. Must be updated and made contemporary...:-P
