What do Fashionista's and the Roman Empire have in common? Apparently, their great taste in shoes. Famously known as the shoe-wear of the Romans and Greeks, gladiator sandals are back and more stylish than ever. Ranging in style, gladiator sandals can be found in a flat or heeled shoe and are available in an assortment of different colors.
Hint: A great way to wear gladiator sandals is to pair them with casual short shorts, allowing your feet to make the fashion statement. Try incorporating the colors of the shoe into the accessories like this Fashionista.
