Yes, this is my second post about gladiators in less than a month, but there’s a good reason for it. I stumbled upon these suede lace-up gladiators from Topshop that look almost identical to the Chloe variation from the Spring/Summer 2015 collection that cost upwards 1k. As much as I love Chloe there’s no way I can justify spending that much on a pair of shoes I’ll only wear for a few months out of the year (boots, on the other hand…). Enter fast fashion, where scoring runway-inspired goodies feels just as exhilarating as biting into a salty, greasy french fry (mmm french fries) – without the adverse side effects. I just ordered the Topshop pair so I can’t attest to the comfort or quality of the shoes, but I’m hopeful they won’t be a letdown. Scroll down for a comparison of the two gladiators, and let me know what you think of the Topshop shoes. Did Topshop go too far in copying the French house?
Don’t worry, this pair from Topshop won’t break your wallet.
