The return of the Gladiator sandal for spring 2013

The Gladiator sandal was a huge trend a few years back in 2008. Celebrities and Fashionistas alike were caught wearing gladiator sandals with everything from red carpet looks to jeans. For the spring 2013 season, the gladiator sandal is back and the look is to wear them with a skirt or a dress.

Gladiator sandals are hot for spring 2013. The last time they were on-trend, Gladiator sandals were flat and looked like they really were worn by Gladiators! For spring 2013, the Gladiator sandal has gotten a little bit sassier. Gladiator sandals are not only being shown in flat styles, there are high heel and platform styles! Fabulous!

Gladiator sandals are being shown in all of the hot colors of the season as well as metallics and neutrals. Any heel height goes this season where the Gladiator sandal is concerned; but for the freshest heel height, look for a flat sole and 3” heel. Love that!

These not-so-simple shoes look fabulous with A-line skirts, flirty dresses and all of the patterns, solids and color blocked frocks of the season. Although Gladiator sandals have a strong look, they are the perfect contrast to spring 2013’s soft fabrics and girlish prints.
