Save Steal Splurge: the Sleek Gladiator
The gladiator sandal is one of summer’s sexiest options. But while the straps and skin have their allure, getting into all those crisscrossing strips isn’t always the easiest. And while studs also catch the eye, sometimes it’s better to keep things simple. If you’re wearing a patterned maxi, a loud romper or you just want attention drawn north of your ankles, you’ll need a pair that’s meant to step up your duds, not stand out. We’ve got a few options that are clean and simple and easy to get into that will let your summer wardrobe take center stage and let you walk the boardwalk in style.
