In the Wilderness, The Mighty Wilderness
Tread lightly? Nah, stomp around as much as you want in gladiator sandals. The fact that these sandals strap to your calf higher than your ankle, gives you a bit more durability than say, sandals that stay below the ankle. Reason being, it has extra support to pull on when you start to twist your ankle. Instead of allowing the free movement to twist your ankle, it restricts it. And so, no damsel in distress will be found in these gladiators! And from flowy skirts to jeans, these babies go with anything.
Gladiators aren’t really meant to be hidden. There’s so much detail going, it’d be a shame to actually not show them off as a statement item. Of course, details like feathers or charms gives gladiator sandals more of a boho chic personality, but because it makes for such a standout piece, it helps create the personality of your look.

So these might not be the footwear you want to stomp around in, but they’re defintely the kind you want to strut around in. In this case, adding a heel gives off more of a sexy, edgy look that can be worn out in the city and not just a music festival field. Gladiators are known for the strappy overall look along with the cutouts, something that parallels feminine lingerie. And again, because it makes for such an eye catching part of your outfit, it can really spice up a look.
