Modern Day Chain Gang

Lanvin Pump with Ankle Chain (Beige) - $1,075.00

Hilary Duff wearing Lanvin Pumps with Ankle Chain

Chains on shoes seem to be on the rebound of the revolving cyclical trend at the moment. Of course, the concept of adding chains to shoes is not new, but I don't think I've seen it implemented in such a chic, sophisticated way. Hilary Duff's look (shown above) portrays a business woman on a mission. I can dig it....

Side Note**
I don't know why, but "Chain Gang" are the two words that come to mind when I see these Lanvin Pumps. In case anyone is wondering, the original term arose from prisoners chained together while performing manual labor outside prisons, which has absolutely nothing to do with shoes (I know, I know). Nevertheless, those words come to mind when I see these shoes.
