Fashion warriors don’t fret, gladiator style heels are still en vogue for the upcoming warm weather months. This style has stuck around for several seasons and doesn’t look to be going anywhere through the spring and summer months. The golden gladiator is well suited for anything from beach parties to black tie events when paired with the right ensemble. Wear this fierce footwear now with your winter tights or jean leggings then bare those lengthy legs with a sexy mini and gladiators when the weather warms up. Whether you identify with Aphrodite or Athena, there is a gorgeous gladiator out there for you. Try one of these Spartan inspired sandals and strut the streets in style this season:
