Valentino created a pair of courts in 2010 scattered with studs, or Rockstuds to be precise. Fast-forward a handful of years and those miniature embellishments have reached cult status. They serve to amp the gladiatorial silhouette of these caged PVC sandals from the Italian house’s latest collection. Given they’re competing with the lacquered shine of the material, they demand the spotlight. Styling a toga might be literal, but we won’t judge.
