From Thigh-High Styles to Glamorous High Heels

 - Nov 15, 2011
I can't think of a fashion trend in recent history that has experienced as much truly unexpected staying power as gladiator sandals. When the Grecian style sandals appeared on the feet of celebrities a few summers back, they sent millions of women scrambling to get their hands on a pair (myself included).

Now, years later, gladiator sandals emerge in magazines, on the runway and on the feet of women everywhere every year when the weather starts to get warmer. I, for one, never expected the look to last. I presumed gladiator sandals would be a two month-long fad never to be seen again, but here we are today, with gladiator sandals just as popular as ever.

Available in a huge variety of colors, patterns and materials, these sandals have even combined forces with skyscraper heels to create some epic statement shoes. Check out this gallery of gladiator sandals to take a look at some of the different styles that these stylish sandals come in.
