A Gladiator Sandal/Sneaker Hybrid?

I was on Twitter and Yvonne over at HeyDoYou twittered about these Nike Gladiateur Mids.

Basically they are a sneaker/gladiator sandal hybrid.

What Nike does best are sneakers and sports apparel and I think that they should stick to that.  While they are a superior sneaker designer they have had some misses and these Gladiateurs are one of them.

They aren’t that bad but I wouldn’t spend money on them or wear them if I got them as a gift.

If you want a gladiator sandal then but a gladiator sandal and if you want a sneaker then by a sneaker.

What do you think?  Love ’em or leave ’em alone?
