Trend Alert: The Bronze Gladiator

I revel in it when a previous bargain of mine finally makes it to trend status. Not to brag, but I scored a pair of Christian Dior bronze gladiators over a year ago on major markdown — they were from the 2008 Cruise collection. It was right when gladiators were surfacing, though I've always liked the masculine/feminine sandal. Now gladiators are every which where and it was hard to miss Gwyneth's Giuseppe Zanotti for Balmain bronze sandals at the Two Lovers premiere in Cannes. So we all have black ones, move on to the lover, the fighter, the bronze gladiator.

I love Gladiators and want a pair of flat ones, but every pair I try on make my ankles look HUGE. I think me and Gladiators are just not meant to be.

I prefer the high-heeled ones over the flat ones too...I think the MIA pair is my favorite. The Boutique 9 ones are pretty cute too.

Gonna have to agree with Rosa, also. The flat ones always make legs look weird and stumpy. I love the whole outfit pictured here.

I've got green ones from Nine West and they look great against my skin and go with everything I own.

I love her hair in this style... but I don't love the sandals that much. I remember I used to have a pair in the 90s and I guess I just outgrew them... I like strappier (less material) sandals now :o)

High heel gladiators seem more flattering than flat ones.
