Goodness dear, I see these and I cringe. Please let this be another nightmare. I don't understand why they're so popular. I remember I first saw them in a shoe store and got really angry and was like "these are hideous, Hermes would NOT be proud" and the saleslady shot me a dirty look, so I was like "What? You can't be serious" Thank goodness no one at my university has these wannabes yet.
