I thought I was over the whole "Gladiator" style shoe and I never was really a fan of the "Wedge" shoe. I do not even own a pair. To me the wedge is just another thing put out there for those that do not know how to walk in heels and are too lazy to learn. But I guess I rather see a bunch of people in wedges, then girls walking around in heels that they clearly cannot walk in, looking like they are about to fall over any minute. I even have a few friends that have tried to turn me over to the dark side, telling me to buy a pair but I have held on to my 4 and 5 inch stilettos with all my might.
Before you start throwing cyber tomatoes at me, I know that not all girls that wear wedges cannot walk in regular heels. That is just what my crazy mind thinks when I see them.
Now enter Chrissie Morris with the super sexy and super cute "Sistep" (pictured above). They are these delicious suede gladiator wedges that are a part of her 2009 S/S collection. Her whole line for this season is to die for. All those Egyptian inspired lines, that even the glamorous Cleopatra would have approved of.
I find it incredibly funny that I fell in love with a pair of shoes that have both elements that I do not care for. I think that is karma getting back at me for being such a "Gladiator" and "Wedge" snob. I wonder if this will now open the flood gates and I will start to see other wedges or even gladiator shoes that I like. I actually caught myself recently eyeing Ann Demeulemeester gladiator shoe from her 2009 S/S RTW collection. Yepp, it has to be karma.
I of course will not be buying it. Chrissie's or Ann's shoe. The price tag is too rich for my blood, but you know that I will be hunting down a shoe that is similar to the Sistep. So keep your eye out because once I find them they will make an appearance on my shoe spy posts.
So what do you think of the shoe? I would love to hear your take on it.
Until next time, Ciao!! xoxo
