It’s been a while since we’ve seen the movie Gladiator, yet designers continue to be inspired by the Roman fighters’ detailed footwear. Gladiator shoes come in all shapes and sizes, from flats, to heels, to shoes that lace half way up the calf. Choose metallic tones or neutral shades to get the most wear out of these trendy but practical shoes. The appropriately named “Battle Sandal” by Carlos Santana is available for $97.99 at Heels.com. The central rings, metallic side straps, and thin wooden heel provide a fancier take on the Gladiator trend, as these shoes are more suited for a night out than daytime wear.
