History of gladiator sandals
The original gladiator sandals of ancient Rome , according to Roman-colosseum.info ,were “predominantly leather”. The shoes were made from animal hide with the toughest leather used for the soles. Sandals for gladiator for whom the footwear was named , were constructed from the highest quality of leather so their feet wouldn’t get covered in blood-soaked sand of the battle arena floors. All other Romans wore cheaper versions of the shoe. Roman sandals were designed by prominent artist of the period and because they were precious, were often buried with the owner.
Tips for choosing a pair of gladiator sandals
The gladiator is back ,if you guys noticed it is one of the many footwear that has refused to die down ,surely it has disappeared countless of times but it always seems to find its way back to the world of fashion. I remember when I used to be younger around 2010 and the gladiators sandal was in season, that time I could kill to have one (lol).
This footwear seems to posses both the weight of a winter boot and the look of a rock star. If you want to give this continuous re-emerging trend a unique look but you do not have the slightest idea where to start ,do not be afraid for I will give you some tips.
