It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of studs and I love what Valentino is doing with studs for its womens collection. It’s edgy and sexy at the same time. I was hoping that they would come out with something studded/spiked for the boys. They did but this isn’t hitting the mark at all.
I mean look at this. It’s definitely spiked but there isn’t any edge to it at all. The shape and design of this shoe is off. I don’t get why the shoe is so blunt and round. I wish they had made it sharper. It seems counter-intuitive to make it so stubby looking. But that’s just the vibe I get from it. And it looks a little sad too. Which is a terrible shame.
PS: There is a patent version that looks a lot better and if you’re insisting on buying a pair, the patent pair should be the one you purchase. Buy the below Valentino Buckle And Studded Shoe Patent for US$677.
