Micro Trend

Micro trend: Gladiator sandals

"Warrior women are stomping off the S/S '13 ramps and onto the streets."

When Anne Hathaway stepped on to the Les Miserables red carpet wearing Tom Ford gladiator sandals -- especially made in vegan-friendly materials, no less -- the Oscar winner was dropping major hints for a top summer trend.
The fierce gladiator sandal has made a resurgence on the runway (nostalgia for summer 2010?), and designers have even created evening-wear appropriate versions for new converts.
At Alexander Wang, mere wisps of silver leather flashed across the models' toned limbs, creating the most-modern version of the sandal seen yet.
Things were more traditional at Altuzarra and Rabanne, where heavy-duty straps and enough polished hardware drew up a fairly stylish image of potential female warriors preparing for battle.
The trend even managed to convince high heel addict Victoria Beckham to create a line of gladiator flats to accompany her Spring/Summer offerings, glam quotient kept intact with slick black leather climbing all the way past the calf.
Time to make space in that shoe closet...
