I honestly tried to ignore this trend, but these shoes are everywhere, so it makes it kinda hard not to notice. Gladiator Sandals, an ancient trend dating back to the Roman Empire and biblical times, is made current in 2008. The gladiator sandal is a trend that has been developing for the last couple seasons. They came out with a strong designer presence (Dolce & Gabbana, Prada) but now the mainstream has caught on so now you can own a pair and still fill up your tank with gas, lol! I'm still pretty much iffy on these shoes, but I wanna know what you think about the trend. Do you like it? Hate it? Don't care? Would you wear it? I wanna know your style verdict.
