S/S Trends 2008 Part I: The Gladiator Sandal
If there's a particular piece I'm really gung-ho about for S/S 2008, it's the gladiator sandal! Although it has been around for ages (and I mean ages!) it again only came into our realm of consciousness back in 2005, with Kate Moss of course blazing the way...
...and Alexander McQueen coming out with sandals fit for a Warrior Queen!
For S/S 2008, gladiators have gone beyond the blacks and browns and have become way more colorful! As if celebrating a victory over neutrals! Check out these Balenciaga beauties...
Now if only we have great gams to pull it off...hahaha!
But for those who want to go the Greek classics route and get authentic sandals that would make any Greek warrior proud, order these surprisingly affordable sandals from the sandalmaker/poet Stavros Melissinos' son, Pantelis. If you have it shipped to the US, it will cost you only about $40!
There are tons more of gladiator sandals out there that would suit the fashion warrior in you. Seek out the one that calls your name and gear up, it pays to be prepared for battle!
