Live Your Greek and Roman Dreams With This Shoe Trend

Glamour predicted that one of the 2018 shoe trends is the gladiator style. Hearing that now almost seems nostalgic since a lot of us have stopped wearing it for years. But it looks like some celebrities are rocking it once again.

The footwear comes in flat and heel versions with straps of varying lengths and fit. Dra. Vicki Belo and Julie Anne San Jose recently showed off their legs with the knee-high design.

Rachel Peters also opted for this style during Miss Universe 2017’s national costume competition.

If you want to (finally) give the gladiator shoe a chance for the second or third time, peep our shopping list below.

Ancient Greek Sandals Agapi Leather

Reminiscent of Greek style, this is an everyday pair that you can wear with pants, dresses, and skirts. It’s also made from handmade black leather which “will age beautifully over time” and has buckles shaped like wings. Available on Net-a-Porter.

Charles & Keith Silver Gladiator Sandals

For something flashy, try this silver one from Charles & Keith. This can make any neutral or monochromatic outfit more noticeable. Available at Greenbelt 5.

MDSCollections Zelia Gladiator Heels

Change up your usual heels with this lace-up pair from MDSCollections. Made with a cream-white material, the strap comes up to your ankles. Consider wearing this to your next formal event. Available on Zalora PH.

Rick Owens Gladiator Wedge Sandals

These wedges comes in the “caged” style, which is a modern version of the gladiator shoe. It’s mid-calf length and has a zipper fastening for easy wearing. We suggest you wear this pair with skinny jeans. Available on Farfetch.

Stuart Weitzman Nappa Leather Gladiator Sandals

Is it time for you to try the knee-high style? If you said yes, then go for this Stuart Weitzman pair. It comes in black, making it easier for you to complement with any of your outfits. This will also make your legs appear longer. Available at SM Aura Premier.
