Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Earlier today, when we asked you to opine on whether studded leopard print is a legitimate burgeoning trend or its all-too-frequent appearance in the footwear market this season is just a tragic coincidence, we had no idea of how this day would play out—and how relevant the debate would become to the health and welfare of Kim, our favorite Kardashian.

Gawker reports that Kardashian was wearing these, above, Christian Louboutin studded leopard-print stiletto booties when she tripped and broke her toe—forcing the reality-TV star into at least a few weeks of wearing flats.

Seriously, you guys, this could ruin her.
