Gladiator-inspired heels are a spring 2013 trend that many of us will be hesitant to try. Nonetheless, they’re here, and they deserve to be discussed. I firmly believe that you can try any trend that you like as long as you have the confidence to style it in a way that makes you feel comfy as well as edgy.
If you’re not comfortable with your legs or ankles, showing them off with a gladiator style may not be for you. If you’re lucky enough to have slim and sexy legs, you may want to display the results of your workout efforts (or good genetics) with strappy, buckle-detailed sandals or booties. You could even wear the shoes with slim pants or skinny jeans, so that all of the attention isn’t focused on the ankle or calf area.
Check out these 10 designer styles in detail below. Then, we’ll see how you feel about this trend for spring and summer!
