Gladiator Sandals

Gladiator sandals have never really caught my eye before now. Sure, I’ve seen them for a few seasons and I’ve always liked them on others, but for me I just didn’t jump on them like I have other trends. But this summer was different. I was drawn to them like a moth to the flame. The mission was clear: I needed me some gladiator sandals. I started the search with Stuart Weitzman, since they are the first ones I think of when I hear gladiator sandals. I believe they invented the gladiator sandals (or at least revived it from the Roman Empire — which good for them, you know?) I ended up finding these Stuart Weitzman sandals for almost half off on a fluke Amazon search. I didn’t realize at the time what a steal I was getting, but no complaints here. You can take 50% off my order anytime, Amazon.

I have searched high and low to find other gladiator sandals for all budgets. And even for all lengths — some hit at the ankle and some go up to the knee. Depends on your gladiator preference, of course. I like both looks and don’t think you can go wrong with either. I also found these Steve Madden sandals are almost identical to the ones I’m wearing but for under $100. See more options below!

  6. Those gladiator sandals are gorgeous! I’m definitely on the same page as you and had never really been attracted to this style of shoe until this summer. I just love the fun vibe that gladiator sandals add to outfits. I also love the print on the skirt you’re wearing.

      bahahaha, I’m sure they don’t but i know what you mean though. I think that’s why i liked the lace up ones because it didn’t feel as hospital chic as the others.
