When the gladiator sandal trend first surfaced, I wasn’t a huge fan. But as time has passed and there are more options and styles available (rather than just the knee-high strappy ones), I’m starting to really love them, especially the ones that are a good mix between a gladiator and modern sandal. I picked up my first pair last week, and I can tell they’ll be in constant rotation this summer with shorts, dresses, skirts, and even my jeans rolled up.
Thinking of snagging a pair for yourself for summer? Check out these six picks from around the web!
