Pierre Hardy for Gap hits stores next week, and all of your excitement will melt away when we spill the beans, so get ready. This is slightly heartbreaking for us, but here goes nothing: Only the black wedges pictured made it into production. Those algae green wedges and insane chocolate brown '70s platform-meets-runway-booties that you've been dreaming of will never be propped in your closet, greeting you hello every morning. Goodbye, vintage-y lace-up clunkers. Goodbye!!! [Fashionologie]
