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.
