I love them but I'm thinking about returning them because I feel guilty spending so much money on something I may only get to wear once or twice. They were quite expensive. And I almost never wear sandals. I'm a boots kind of girl and even when it's 85 degrees outside I wear boots. Plus I almost never wear high heels (except for classes). High heels are bad for your knees and bad for your back and trying to balance in them takes the fun out of dancing. Yet when I saw these shoes, I loved them immediately. The straps and buckles on the side make them kind of gothy. Although I think the front is a little more gladiator than gothy.
All I know for sure is that when I put them on, I feel all sophisticated and sexy. I'm just not sure where to wear them.
