Never underestimate the fashion industry. Even when you think you've seen it all, you really haven't. (We wrote about a bra-shaped bag just last week!) The latest example is a pair of hybrid heels that manages to combine Western-inspired buckles and rubber flip-flops.
The Gothika Sandal Heels by Dsquared2 first appeared on the runway in the brand's Spring 2018 show during Milan Fashion Week. In March, the brand announced it would officially begin selling the shoes online with one pretty shocking price tag of $1,485. The Instagram post quickly amassed over 27,000 "likes" and nearly 1,000 comments — far more than the brand's usual engagement on a post. Read on to get an up-close look at this slightly confusing footwear creation and see photos of its runway debut.
