A Renowned Hint of Fabulousness – Gladiator Shoes There have been many different fashion trends throughout the years but in my opinion this one is one of the strongest ones yet. Gladiator shoes have become a voice of a generation and I don’t believe that any fashion expert could expect such a strong response from the public. This trend dates back to Roman times. Go figure. Traditionally a Roman gladiator shoe consisted of a leather sandal that had one open toe and laces that tied around your calf. Part of the credit though must also go to the Grecians of the time who also used this kind of shoes. The credit of today’s fashionable shoes however should probably be given to British fashion designer Alexander McQueen who was the one who revived this fashion in 1995 and since then many celebrities have been spotted trusting various Alexander’s designs. Because of their huge popularity in Hollywood and in every fashion houses, gladiator shoes have become the in thing this season as in previous ones. Models like Adriana Karembeu, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford have been spotted fashioning different kinds of gladiator shoes and sandals. A huge range of different types of gladiator shoes in the high street fashion stores. All colors, shapes, sizes and prices are available for the public. Warrior-like knee-highs and gladiator shoe boots are both very successful pieces of fashion. Gladiator shoe boots combine the already existing hot trend in ankle boots and the even hotter one in gladiators. This provides the buyer with a heavy duty pair of shoes for almost every occasion. In addition to the already successful types of gladiator shoes, a range of new hot designs was added this year. Chunky platforms, high-heels, strap sandals and generally any type of shoes you can imagine now exists in gladiators and it is definitely capturing attention.
