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.

Must Have Over-The-Knee Boots

A pair of comfortable and stylish black boots are a must have in every girl’s closet. My absolute favorite boots are the Stuart Weitzman 5050 boots in black nappa leather. The 5050’s are an international best selling model. This over the knee boot has a stylish design of half micro stretch (in the back) and half nappa leather (in the front). The elasticized fabric allows for the ultimate stretch to fit most legs, while the buttery napa leather provides a sleek and modern look. Due to the genius design, women with both thin and thick calves can enjoy these boots equally. Adorned by various Hollywood celebrities, the 5050 model is a beautiful boot which will never go out of style. These can be dressed up or down very easily, and are a staple for every fashionista.
