Heel or sandal, Ancient Gladiator shoes are a great way to look casual and they look flattering on everyone.
They work especially well if you are not-so-lean and elongate those legs. For me, these are a personal summer favourite but it seems they are being out-shined by the popular wedge. Of course, you can’t really wear gladiators with jeans because you want to show off that pattern.
Pair them with shorts or a white summer dress and you’re good to head to the beach. If you like, you can even just roll up the hem of your pants to make it work.
