So gladiator sandals have been hot for several months now with no signs of slowing. Well loved by starlets, models and mall rats, we’re betting this look is going to stick around and eventually become a staple. Which is kinda funny considering when they first became popular in 1987, they were mostly favored by promiscuous teens who wore them with spandex minis. True story. Now a days they can be seen on the red carpet and beach boardwalks around the world. Naturally, as the world’s premiere online surf apparel shop, we’ve been all over the trend since day one and are super stoked about this super cute and super affordable pair from Steve Madden.
