The Hotness: Gladiator Sandal

I love this style of sandal, and I see it really taking off this year. My friends and I refer to them as "Jesus Shoes," either way, either name... they are hot! I love the shades of brown they come in. Some of the designers to design shoes in this style already are DOLCE & GABBANA, PRADA, THEORY and JOIE. Take a look at some of my picks for the summer:

"Gladiator Flat Sandal" by Dolce & Gabbana, retail price $485.00:

• Cognac (brown) leather.
• Gold-tone hardware.
• Strappy upper.
• Hook-and-loop ankle straps.
• Flat heel.
• Made in Italy.

"Leather Gladiator Flat" by Prada, retail price $495.00:

• Brown leather.
• Crisscross upper.
• Halter ankle strap.
• Made in Italy.

Due to high demand, a customer may order no more than three units of this item every thirty days.

"Woven Sandal" by Joie, retails for $315.00:

• Can't Help Myself Style.
• Natural (tan) woven leather.
• Closed back.

"Mirror Metallic Strappy Flat" by Theory, retails for $240.00:
• Nanna Style.
