Givenchy and Rihanna: A Match made in Shoe Heaven, or that other place?

Good Monday everyone. I'm on vacation this week, at least from my 9 to 5 grind. So today, during my online fashion research, who do I run into, but my favorite (I hope she comes to her senses)hip-hop, fashion diva, Rihanna. Paired with extreme fashion forward footwear in the form of Givenchy's Gladiator Boot, the diva and the designer make for an eye-catching collaboration.

I've read numerous reviews of this particular design and opinions have been mixed. While the gladiator has never been a personal choice of mine in the past, I love these, and if given the chance (and the moolah) I would scoop them up in a heartbeat and find a way to wear them the same day. But then, that's just my crazy self. I say, if you've got the right look, go for it. What do you think, my Loverlees? Are these a do or a don't? Strictly celebrity, or can real-world fashion divas pull these off?

Shoes that make you go hmmmm...

Hmm, I really like them! They would look awesome over bright tights, or really pale skin, or tan skin, or anything other than black.

I love the gladiator shoe look. It's sexy to me.

I think they could be pulled off! Definitely! They are so unique and I love the edginess about them. I hope she comes to her senses too!

Oh I love these honey and think Rihanna totally pulled them off.
I would whip them up in a minute!
Hope your well honey.
