Lace-up Gladiator Sandals

Lace-up Gladiator Sandals

Whether you’re taking a stroll down the streets with your pets or heading out to hot and happening party in town, one thing’s for sure: you’re going to be bombarded with a variety of gladiator sandals on the legs of modern-day gladiator (ahem) women! We salute the trend; it’s very hot, ideal for spring and summer, and certainly a welcome retreat from the confines of boots and shoes from last winter.

But did you know that in ancient times, gladiator shoes were considered a mark of status, symbol and prestige? Yup! In past-day Rome, going barefoot was considered socially inappropriate; footwear was a social status-marker and some socially-forward ladies where known to have maids-in-waiting to carry multiple pairs of shoes in specially made bagsso that they can switch them out according to the occasion.

While gladiator shoes were originally identified with the Roman god Apollo, it soon riffed off into something of a memento from a far-away, exotic vacation, and transcended into modern-day ramps and red carpet events. In fact, gladiators became so popular in the mini-skirt era that Vogue dedicated several pages to highlight the ‘Greek-inspired’ trend in 1968.

Love them or not, gladiator shoes are a mark of a true fashionista, for it’s not everyone that can make a billowing maxi dress and a pair of lace-up gladiator shoes look fashionable!
