Blahnik Tonic. Well-Heeled: Gladiator Sandals

June 13, 2008 • Accessories


Biba RTW Spring ’08

Admittedly, Initially I was not digging the gladiator heel trend. However, I have come to change my mind. And no, "Sex and the City" didn’t do it for me…but it helped confirm I’m crazy about the look. Mind you, not the knee-high version a la Balenciaga. Come to think of it, I just seem mad for shoes this spring/summer. Maybe Carol is finally rubbing off on me.

Wear the gladiator-heel with shorts and dresses. It’s not all Greek.

    I love gladiator heels as well! I do not like the knee-high look, but I do love the Christian Dior sandals Carrie Bradshaw wore. Isn’t it funny how you might not like a trend at first, but as you see it more and more, it grows on you?

    Mary Jane,
    Ain’t that the truth? It is amazing how some trends you hate initially and then suddenly, you are hooked. Actually, I love that!
    I too love those Dior sandals….in fact, I am now obsessed!

    Especially loving the Ralph Lauren wedges and the cork-heeled pair. Not loving the weight of the model in the photo… she looks like she’s going to break!
