Stuart Weitzman Gladiator Sandals

In the past gladiator sandals have been flat-soled and open-toed shoes that feature several straps of leather crisscrossing around the leg, usually with lots of flimsy ties. However over the past seasons, they have continued to transform. Jesus sandals was a term often used by people who did not feel these sandals flattered any fashionista’s style. Designers have been evolving the gladiator sandal and are now offering us upgraded versions. Gladiator sandals can now be found in various styles from chic high heels to contemporary flats.

Two of my recent favorite gladiator styles are by the celebrity designer Stuart Weitzman. SW pieces are handcrafted in Spain and are made of high quality material and natural leather, all boasting a soft cushioned sole. Both of these models are an epitome of comfort and style.

Both of these styles are extremely comfortable and are suited to be worn all day. Despite being thin, the sole feels soft, supportive, and well cushioned. These can be easily cleaned by a gentle damp wipe. The black is a matte finish, and the “cava” color is a soft golden hue with gold hardware.
