I thought they would be too over the top and was apprehensive about the quality, particularly whether the studding would look flimsy or cheap. This had stemmed from the one bad review I had read and well... even one negative opinion tends to stick with you. I'm glad to have been pleasantly surprised and to have fallen so deeply in love with the quality, pyramid gold studding and multiple straps. Some how all this chaos really works. I hang my head in shame for ever questioning the design genius that is Valentino.
