You all know by now that I am a huge fan of gladiator sandals, even though my friends say I look like Hercules when I wear them. Whatever. These Lanvin Gladiator Sandals, $575, to me, are one of the best kinds out there. Worn with a pair of itty-bitty denim shorts and a simple white tee, they would look dazzling. If they're a bit out of your league, you'll be excited for the look for less...I sure was!

Almost identical, these Dolce Vita Fondue Gladiator Sandals, $87, are the perfect alternative to the Lanvin ones. They even have the same t-strap and python detail. For less than half the price, I'd purchase these. And if ever asked "Are those Lanvins?" I'd just smile and nod. A little white lie never hurt anyone!
