When Chanel Resort 2007 came out with the gladiators boots, I initially was repulsed as I thought to myself, "too tacky, too much". Then Mary-Kate was seen wearing them and offered me new perspective; I still thought it was too much. The extreme gladiator sandals have been mentioned in blogs for a while now, but more-so recently. Inevitably, it started to grow on me.
I forgot whose blog it was (feel free to comment so I can mention you), but she had a link up on Ebay for these gladiator boots. I thought about buying it on the spot, but instead I lurked around the Ebay pages for a few weeks while I thought of what would look good with it.
I caved in.

What do you think? I got a lot of positive and negative comments that day, and plenty of stares or double-takes.
And a little side story, when I say negative comments, I mean, negative comments. After school, I stopped by my friend's house, and there were about four people over. The second I walked through the door, all eyes were on my feet, then a huge uproar of laughter. As a result, it completely dampened my confidence in these boots (I feel weird calling them boots). But once I got home, I looked at the pictures of Chanel Resort and Mary-Kate; only then, I started to consider buying matching white ones.
