Gladiator Sandals Trend For Summer 2014

Casual Day Out

Gladiator sandals are definitely trending this summer and they have been in style for over four years now, so I’m beginning to think this trend is here to stay. In fact, it keeps reinventing itself with different styles and variations as we have seen on celebrities and on the runways. SOOOOOOOOOooooo, GLADIATOR SANDALS ARE A MUST HAVE THIS SUMMER!

Which gladiator sandals are your favourite?

You can choose from minimalistic gladiator sandals to knee high gladiator sandals and since gladiators are so transitional they are perfect for almost any occasion.

If you don’t own a pair of gladiator sandals you need to add at least one affordable pair to your wardrobe this summer. If you have tons then you don’t necessarily need to purchase any new ones but rather recycle the ones you have from last year, or you can be creative and revamp your old gladiators with a little DIY by adding embellishments and changing the color by spray painting or using a brush and hand painting.

Gladiator sandals range in prices depending on the designer/brand; if you have money in the bank to splurge then you can opt to go with a premier designer such as Giuseppe Zanotti, who is killing the gladiator game with their elaborate designs. Take a look below.
