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?
