It seems gladiator sandals are back for spring 2013. If you watched the fashion shows, then you’ve probably seen the trend on the runways of Chanel, Tom Ford, and even Versace. We’re not talking about the typical ankle-level, strappy, Roman-inspired sandals here; we mean knee-grazing, cagelike, statement-making gladiator shoes — both heeled and flat.

What do you think of this bit of trend for spring? Are you excited that gladiator sandals are back (and with a vengeance it seems)? Would you wear a pair? And how would you style such catchy shoes without looking like a disaster?
Well, here’s a suggestion. Why not take a cue from Versace’s spring 2013 runway looks? Wear a pair with a short billowy dress for that bohemian vibe.
