Cannot believe it….slides….maybe a strappy hint of BDSM?

Band of Outsiders Strappy Sandals Slides 2dievca hates Birkenstocks…she thinks they are “Fugly“. But, then she goes off half-cocked and purchases a pair of Band of Outsiders strappy sandals.

Are they too much like Birkenstocks?

The slides are sold out on ShopBop and Barneys – dievca got the last pair on FarFetch.com.  They are being shipped from the “Webster” in Miami, FL. she still cannot decide if she loves them or hates them.
Yes, they can be returned…

Band of Outsiders Strappy Sandals Slides

Could this be considered a little bid of BDSM? Bondage, Shibari, Webbed Belting?
The other options of Band of Outsiders strappy sandals look kind of cool, too.

So, dievca went “nude” last year ($665 for a pair of nude Sandals) with nude huaraches. ($25.00)

Way less than the $665~
Now, she is looking for color and a little hint of BDSM!

****UPDATE****

The sandals were sold out from the Webster and dievca’s order was cancelled…now she is on the lookout for another pair of summer sandals. Any suggestions?

2nd update…ShopBop got my size in and they sent the sandals…I do like them.
Hmmm- sigh.
Cost per use?
Thoughts?

    Guess it depends on how much effort you put into the knotting and binding.

  2. Fugly is definitely the word for Birks. πŸ™‚

  3. Leslie Meeks says:

    I would wear these. Where did you purchase them?

  4. Oh good, cos I thought they’re even fuglier than the good old Birks…

    to me they read very preppy. if you are in a DIY mood, i’d sew a couple of bands of chain on them (on top of the wider bands), with a chainlink ankle bracelet to get it more BDSM-y. they look more tailored than birkenstocks…and i always amortize/justify expensive purchases to soothe my conscience πŸ˜‰

  6. Ummmm…..It’s really necessary to have flats… but perhaps, not these 😦

    Out here way too many people wear Birks and nearly every single one is in desperate need to a pedicure or two (or 12). The ones that know their feet are nasty wear socks with them. I run away from anything that looks Birk. Known fact (know by my own powers of observation) – The prettier the sandal the more the person takes care of their feet.

    They are preppy, and with the tie up straps, kinda cute.

  8. Ar-haaaa! She’s starting to fall..it is a slippery slope! xxx

      Sadly — I am returning the slides. But, only from the standpoint that the white and yellow bits are going to get disgustingly dirty in the City….they are more practical when you own a car. $300 for dirty–nah. I am still on the lookout for a pair of sandals~
