Now these are gladiators made for grabbing attention:
Standing tall and proud among all the gladiator footwear styles are these metallic black Jean Paul Gaultier Uma boots (or are these sandals? Bootandals?). They’re knee-high, they zip up in the back, and they have “wings” at the sides. The straps that lace-up at the front are elastic and I have no idea how you’re supposed to adjust them if they’re too tight or too loose.
Anyway, as these are clearly NOT your ordinary gladiator sandals, my question is: how would you wear these Jean Paul Gaultier Uma sandal / boots?
Is it better to keep the rest of your ensemble understated and pair these boots with your plainer clothes? :
Or since the Jean Paul Gaultier Umas are a pair of crazy shoes, would you go all out and go just as crazy with the rest of your outfit? :
Mull it over and while you’re doing that, you might also want to think about whether dropping $1,399.00 on the Jean Paul Gaultier Umas is justifiable. That’s a high price to pay for a trendy pair of shoes!
