I have been trying to accept the gladiator sandal. It's been hard, and I have never fully accepted but a few of them. But, now I can work my way up to the gladiator boot! There are various degrees of gladiator bootness, and this my friends is the extreme. It's by Givenchy and has been spotted on several celebrities. I thought it would make a good feature on Halloween. There's a lot going on here and it makes me feel a little claustrophobic - it's kind of like straitjacket for the leg. Don't even bother shopping for it, you can't afford it.
