Would you ever? / Have you ever? - Gladiator Sandals

Gladiator sandals. Sometimes I think they would be so cool.

Celebs seem to pull it off... right?

However, I worry I would just end up looking like this:

Especially because I have large dancer calves.
(I mean, they're called "gladiator sandals" for a reason...)

And sometimes, they remind me a little of this:

You know, with all those leather straps?

Well, what do you think? Have you ever worn them? Are they comfortable? If you haven't worn them, would you?


1. Dolce Vita Marcel flat sandals
2. Giuseppe Zanotti Gladiator ankle boot
3. Brown Python Gladiator sandals
4. Gladiator heel (via Delia's - I actually think these would be doable. They're a little less gladiator-y.)
5. Dolce & Gabbana back zip-up sandals


  1. I think if you stay away from 1 and 5, maybe 3 you're ok. I don't think Ms Olsen pulls it off. It looks more like she has knee-hi stockings on.

  2. I actually really like #5, the design of the straps is a little less "execution chair" than some of the others. But, I don't think this a trend I'm going to hop on, ever.

  3. Clever... thank you for making me laugh! And, yes, I wear them. But, the subtle ones. I could pull off #3 or #4.
