It is ironic that the modern day is going back to stone age by the use of gladiator sandals. We see everywhere women wearing these sandals. From the most popular designers to the general brands out there, gladiator sandals are the new trend in fashion. I have seen many celebs sporting this like Lindsay Lohan, Nicky Hilton, and the like. At first, this fashion piece seems awkward. But when you get used to it and can work it out, it can define who you are. In short, the gladiator sandals can be an expression of your art and your self per se.
Gladiators can be matched with different outfits. This is what I like about this sandal. You can pair it with jeans, skirts, dress a nd even shorts. The height of gladiator sandals come with three different sizes: ankle-high, mid-calf and knee-high. The ankle-high sandals are the most flexible to sport since they can be used with any shapes of legs. As for the mid-calf, they work most of the time on slender legs. As for the knee-high, it can make your legs look longer as long as you are careful with the choice of straps.
The gladiator sandal symbolizes strength. And for modern women, the gladiators may mean an empowerment on a society that is highly divided by class, gender and race. For others, gladiators are just another way of expressing oneself through fashion; another fashion trend/piece. Whatever it is, the gladiator sandals have undeniably revived a new wave of fashion trend for women.
