gladiator sandals: yay or nay?

Gladiator sandals... a trend from 2009 that's sticking around for 2010.
What do you think? Yay or Nay?
Personally, I'm not a fan. I can't even explain why I don't like them... I just don't like them.
{Like the color, don't like the shoe}
{While I don't love, somehow Kate Moss pulls everything off}
{Not cute. At all.}
{If I was forced to wear gladiator sandals at gunpoint... I might choose these}
{and the ultimate gladiator sandal. props for pulling them off but still hate them}
Let me know what you think! Is there another style of shoe that you can't get on board with?
Happy Monday!
xoxo

Kerr said...

not a huge fan. I think they look alright on some people but I dont think I am one of them. I would like the pair gwenyth has on though.

oh hell nayyyy! they're way to russel crowe in gladiator for me. plus i have stubby legs which look even stubbier when i attempt to wear those things. on other people, they're okay. but just okay.

I'm over them. Like you said, they were cool in 2009, now it's just a bit overdone.

I think they break up the leg and without the heel it just adds it all up to not being very flattering.

If I have to have a strap, it better at least be a four inch heel to balance out the dimininshing effects.

Nicole said...

Oh no bueno! I am going to have to say NAY! I cant do it, I am a flip flop girl =D

Rhianna said...

I think they look ok on some people, but I am way to short and these kind of sandals make me look shorter.

katie + bret said...

I love them on the people that can pull them off. Rhianna. Yuck. Those just look HORRIBLE!

aww i LOVE them!!!! i think they're super cute but i dont like the ones that go practically to your knees!!!

meredith said...

IF i were to wear them, they'd have to be high heeled like g.paltrow's. i'm to short for them to look right. i also KIND OF like kate moss' - but probs because they're less gladiator-y. the shorter (on me), the better. my mom is 5'9 and has some hot gladiator heels. they're age appropriate and not "too much."

Jen said...

I'm not a fan of them either, Morgan. They're just too much. However, I might look at a gladiator "inspired" sandal that is a little simpler.

Jenni said...

I'm not a fan. I think only people with long lean legs can pull them off. Otherwise you just look stubby...

Katy Mary said...

I like certain styles but not really the ones that go up the leg, I just like the strappy sandal look. And Rhianna looks rediculous.

Mommy Lisa said...

Cannot explain why, but i love them too. I have TWO pair. one bronzy and the other light tanish.

Meghan said...

NAY. Except Ms Moss. She always looks fab. I will take her grey skinnies too!

Claire Kiefer said...

I think I'm in the middle. Some folks look awesome in them, some look ridiculous. I steer clear of them cause they make short legs look shorter and they don't even seem that comfy (I mean I'm all for beauty over comfort, but these aren't nearly beautiful enough).

Nicole Marie said...

yay on the short ones!

~KS said...

I have one pair I love... some I think are awful. But I think the right pair is fun. I don't wear mine often but they're fun with certain outfits.

I am not a HUGE fan of them but I think they can be cute with some outfits.
