These Alain Quilici 'High' gladiator sandals are a decidedly more aggressive version of the classic Greco-Roman footwear we've seen so much of lately. Rather than the standard ankle or even knee-length sandal, these bad boys extend up to the thighs.

I'm not quite sure whether Alain Quilici's 'High' gladiator sandals are more appropriate for the bedroom or the nightclub, but they're sure to turn heads wherever you wear them.

Implications - Fashion designers are regularly revisiting historic time periods and incorporating the variety of styles that have come and gone into modern collections. Among these are old Hollywood-glam styles, 60s bohemian styles, 20s flapper fashions, and most surprisingly, gladiator styles from ancient Rome.
