All roads lead to Rome…

It’s one of the Top 10 fashion must-haves of 2008. Take a stroll into any shoe store and you are sure to see the strappy rendition of the gladiator sandal. Love them or hate them…they are slated to be this summer’s biggest trend.

The gladiator sandal first made popular by the Romans 2000 years ago made their comeback last year and have since been popping up on celebrities, store shelves, and feet everywhere. Iā€™m sure Sex & The City fans noticed the Christian Dior number Sarah Jessica Parker was sporting throughout the movie.

Since last summer, it seems everyone has come up with their version of the gladiator sandal and they have been making their appearance on Paris, Rome and NY fashion runways.

Some styles out now are cute but some look like they wouldn’t be the most comfortable shoes to wear in the hot summer weather.Can you imagine the blisters? Ouch!

Thoughts?Do you think anyone can pull off these gladiator inspired sandals?

    HAHA You are probably right…but they have to be better than the UGG boots everyone insisted on wearing in the middle of the summer. I could never understand how someone in there right mind would choose to wear boots and forgo the flip flops or sandals! šŸ™‚

    I am not a fan of the gladiator sandals..not at all. I was out last night and there were a few too many ladies sporting different varieties.

    I think they are best left on the feet of the ‘gladiators’ who prey on tourists for photos by the Colosseum here in Rome!
