    I'm so sick of studs everywhere. It's not edgy, it's retarded.

    +1. even lanvin has fallen into this trend.[​IMG]

    I'm actually growing fond of spikes and studs. Maybe it's because I've been spending too much time looking through Balmain stuff, but I think it's pretty cool.

    I wouldn't wear the CL w/ studs but they do not really bother me anymore, I actually like the Prorsum leather with studs/spikes.

    I was tempted to cop that Julius replica leather and do that, Balmain style.

    Prada, Burberry, and Louboutin have all done massive everything-studded sprees in the last few seasons. Why is it still going (and why are people still buying)? (For the record, I haven't seen any footwear from Burberry with "studs," precisely, but they did a bunch of riveted hardware-laden sandals and such for SS11) It also disconcerts me that the "studded version" of anything is always far more expensive than the regular version -- not because this is sterling silver hardware we are talking about, but because the consumer has been inured to the extra costs associated with anything "embellished." For instance, Burberry Prorsum S/S'11 on LVR has a fairly nice Biker Vest (not something I'd wear but it's the sleeveless version of something I'd definitely wear) priced at CAD$1802 despite all kinds of zippers, hardware, and a belt, while the studded leather vest with only a single front zipper and no detailing whatsoever apart from the studs, is priced at an astronomical $5418. Both are "100% lambskin." [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Post some fit pics when you get them. I was gonna get them but the lime green color during the day ultimately turned me off.

    Not hard. there are 1600 fashionista blogs about how to put studs in your steve maddens; just do some googling.

    will do, had similar reservations... in my head they will go great with washed blacks/grey jeans/pants, techy outerwear (like my favorite casual jacket [​IMG]), and brown/blue casual outerwear. mostly what i wear anyway. i mean, they aren't going to match anything out there, so just run with it and minimize the juxtaposition eh?

    I remember two people commenting on the sizing. One said it is a size big so you need to size down while the other said it is TTS.

    One size too large or used to be that way.
