I'm sure that there will be many girls (and even some guys) who will want to get their hands on these Gladiadora Boots. It is a customized gladiator-style sandal made out of a pair of Converse All Star sneakers -- and there appears to be only one in existence.

Created by Brazilian fashion designer Thaís Muniz, the Gladiadora Boots were shot for magazine Criativa after he won a customization contest that was held by this publication. Photographed by Eladio Machado, the Gladiadora Boots were modeled by the beautiful Leticia Quessada.

For those of you who want a similar style, Converse did release its own sneaker sandal. Of course, if you are patient, I'm sure we'll eventually see the Gladiadora Boots appear under Muniz's Maria Preta label. Stats for Gladiator-Style Sneakers Trending: Older & Warm
