Gladiator glory!

Are gladiators about to join the long line of perennials? I did an about turn on them last summer as my trusty pair of gladiators I had had for some years gave up the ghost. Well, rather even Mr MDS sort of gave a look that conveyed the fact missing studs and frayed front and battered sides wasn't working. And, this is the stupid bit, because they were every where and the sandal of the season, I sniffily refused to replace them.

This leaves me for a second year without a pair and my resolve is beginning to wain. I still hanker after my old pair and haven't been inspired to replace them - that and a wafer thin budget.

I rather fancy a couple of pairs in Russell & Bromley one at the princely sum of £155 but then I think its silly to spend so much.

My perusal of Office, Faith et al hasn't revealed a favourite, partly due to my nostalgia for my past pair - so if you've got any faves or a gladiator glory pair you want to share - do tell!

PS Thanks to RML for this very handy link which has me sold on all three! It's like the bus scenario...

  1. I've only got a platform pair just now, but am lusting after these spendy fellas: http://cydwoq.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=CYDWOQ&Product_Code=WVN-DEFEND&Category_Code=WVN-SANDALS

  2. I had a pair of white, flat gladiators in high school that I wore till they were in pieces. I've loved the style ever since. K. Jacques has always had flat gladiators, but I was yearning for a high-heeled pair so I was thrilled when suddenly gladiators were everywhere last year. A dream come true! I got a pair of white Jil Sanders specifically because they recalled my high school pair: http://wbjewelry.blogspot.com/2008/04/nu-shooz.html
