Wear Gladiator Sandals and Bring Out Your Inner Warrior

One of my  avorite trends now is gladiator sandals.

Gladiators have an interesting history. You saw the movie, right? If you haven’t, let me give you a quick history lesson.

Thousands of years ago, the Roman Empire controlled everything. The Romans made slaves out of prisoners of war. They trained the best to be gladiators. If these men survived three to five years, they were free. Imagine the tremendous motivation to fight well.

 And today, we have snazzy shoes reminiscent of these fearless men — tall boots, ropes, parallel straps, braided cords, studs, ringtones, cutout details or statement buckles. They come in flat or high heels with many design choices, colors and styles.
