We’ve seen ’em and loved ’em in the past and they’re back with a vengeance. We’re talking about gladiator sandals, which were trending hard on Spring 2015 runways.

Warm weather’s answer to the thigh-high boot, this spring’s gladiator’s are unforgiving, powerful, and statement-making. Valentino, Rodarte, and Chloe are big names among many designers that paired flowing dresses, micro-minis, and tight pants with the bold shoe.

Either totally flat and minimalist, or with a slight feel or wedge, expect to see the lace-up style everywhere, from Barneys to Zara.
