Get laced up in this season’s on-trend gladiator sandals. The deity-derived shoes (think Aphrodite) are seeing a resurgence on the runways this summer. At Chanel’s Resort 2018 show, models walked through an arid Greek landscape in candy-colored platform versions of the ancient shoe that crisscrossed to the knees. While Chanel’s pair won’t be available for a couple of months, improvise with our edit of statement gladiator sandals ahead. Strapped-up shoes look especially striking criss-crossing up tanned, exposed legs or peeking out behind a flowing, maxidress. Including options in suede and leather, here are eight gladiator sandals that will have you looking (and feeling) like a goddess this season.
