Gladiator sandals

While I still think these flat gladiator sandals are hideous


and absolutely non flattering, and ugly...

I am starting to warm up to them when they come with a little (!) heel...




And while I still don't like these...



These I think I can work with!


Shoes store these days are filled with these gladiator and strappy sandals, so much so that even if you didn't like them before, the continuous exposure will brainwash you to the point of wanting a pair! Trust me, I speak from experience!

Hmm...



Hmm...




Because I would have never liked something like this in the past.


And now, instead, when they add a little wedge, I can almost think they're beautiful!



I even like them with animal prints!



And for some weird reason, I think these ones are my favorite so far.


So there you have it! Consider yourself brainwashed!

Pay attention next time you're in a shoe store, and let me know if you didn't think about buying one of these guys..

Can't do the heels - and I promise not to wear gladiator flats! LOL

I just bought some Bandolino sandals that are 1/2 sandals, 1/2 gladiators. I think the 1/2 sandal sold me. I actually don't find them very comfortable...it depends on the straps.

I just insisted last year on buying the flats (eek, I know). As soon as I got them home, I looked to see what they would look good with. Nothing. They were horrid, costly and slippery.
I like those silver, those are oooh la la.
Heh. You can indulge in heels now but soon you will be seeking fashionable flats.

I can't indulge in heels anymore, not with this basketball I am carrying in front!
I'm already on the flats front, but they won't be gladiator flats, that's for sure...

with heels they're practically a different shoe... but the flat ones are still hideous. can't argue with that.
