In the Spring/Summer Collection 2013, gladiator sandals were brought to the market by Stuart Weitzman. The inspiration of presenting the sandals in a knee high form derives from the Roman gladiators’ combat shoes. This is also how this model “Gladiator” got its name. It is definitively the breakthrough for the shoe trend in summer and grants every feminine look a somewhat stronger character.
The knee high gladiator sandals from Stuart Weitzman are composed of nappa leather and the side zipper. Furthermore, the strap buckle is adjustable. So this model provides the simplicity to put on for its complicated-looking structure.
The Reality TV Star Kourtney Kardashian, for example, had her gladiator on quite often in the summer of 2013.
And in this year, 2015, gladiator sandals surprised us once again on the catwalk with a Comeback. Many Designers, such as Saint Laurent, Chloé, Gianvito Rossi and Miu Miu, presented their knee high sandals with more creativity and variety in the fashion shows. For instance, the gladiator sandals with wedge heel really caught our eyes on Chloé’s runway, which creates a feminine attraction.
