I loved Burberry Prorsum’s Spring Summer 2011 Collection. The studdedleather jackets, the motorcycle-pant inspired trousers, the down-to-basics colors, but the showstoppers for me were the GLADIATORS.
Yes, others have come out with their own men’s gladiators before. What made these special?
They were perfect. In my opinion, they were the perfect balance of classic gladiators, masculinity, utility, and fashion. They weren’t girly. I don’t have a problem with ‘girly’ things, but these didn’t make me feel too gay, is what I’m saying. As a homo, I can say there is a thing as being too gay.
Anyway, I thought these were cute on the runway and stored that information in the back of my mind until recently. Fast-forward to now, these babies are SOLD OUT in stores everywhere. Too bad, I want them like CRAZY. I would do anything for a pair that fits perfectly. I want no other gladiators. I won’t settle for anything less. They have a shorter version of these floating around but they just don’t cut it.
They retailed for approx. $700 USD. They probably go for some absurd amount on eBay. Wait, don’t go there on the chance they’re for sale. THEY’RE MINE!!!!!!
I’m kidding;) I checked and some asshole is pricing them for the ‘Buy It Now’ price of $2,450 USD. STUPID. Btw, they’re a size 7 US.
I can only dream of owning these now. This always happens to me. Let’s hope I find a pair or something just as good. If I do, I’ll buy them first and have the honor of telling you guys about it:)
