They're baaaaaack: Gladiator Sandals

It doesn't seem that long ago when women were strapping gladiator sandals onto their feet, ankles, and calves. Gladiator sandals were the footwear of choice for music festivals, fashionistas, and avid lovers of the sandal when it made its debut in modern fashion many, many years before.  

Okay, maybe the last time we wore gladiator sandals, we were in college and that was almost a decade ago. Since fashion trends have a tendency of repeating themselves every few decades (albeit this trend is making its comeback at warp speed), we weren't entirely sure if we were ready for the Greco-Roman inspired duds. Fortunately, the new incarnation of gladiators are looking pretty sharp by maintaining the conceptual idea of the gladiator sandal while incorporating trends that have been cropping up all over the place: studs, metal and new age shapes.

Here are some of our favorites:
