have you got your gladiator sandal?

must-have shoes for the summer! i havent got mine yet! you can see them all over on the s/s runway, from balenciaga to chanel to givenchy, check it out! however gladiator sandal is nothing new. its a trend roll-over, which is when a trend from the previous year (same season) 'rolls over' to the next year (same season). i did some research and its been rolling over since 2005. or maybe even 2000 when russell crowe started wearing them! i guess this year is more about getting up to knee length. i was actually looking around for a nice pair to go with the 08APR E tube dresses, but i didnt have enough time and i had to leave for singapore. now that i am back in hk, i shall continue my search! all photos from style.com
those who already got something similar, you can match it with APR E tube dresses and look totally cool! or with your denim shorts and a loose flowy top!
p.s. remember when you were a kid, do you have a pair of gladiator sandals from bata? hahaha i vividly remember my brown one. its funny i think almost every kid owns at least a pair! cute.

hi ellen, yes thats the problem with the knee length ones, i am also short. have to match with a really short dress or short skirt, to elongate the legs. hehe. i hope i can find one which is about shin length! : )
