Realising I needed to wean myself off them I did what any self respecting addict would do and turned my dependency to Gladiator sandles. My love for Gladatior sandles is deeply rooted in my slightly obsessive character. I say slightly obsessive because I'm (not so slightly) obsessed with anything Roman, to the point where I heared Flux by Bloc Party and heard "We were hoping for some Romans" rather than 'Romance'. The highstreet is offering the best selection I've seen since Gladiator sandles took off and of course Cavalli, among others are there to tempt.
Ralph Lauren manages to make Gladiator sandles preppy with the 'Marsha' woven dark brown leather sandles.
Extravagence from Roberto Cavalli with beige leather and crocodile sandles. Not for the PETA meeting.
