The gladiator sandals have been hot for a couple years now, but last summer, when Kate Moss walked around in them, I didn't really like them. This year on the other hand, I feel that I'm warming up to them. I have some claims, though;
1. They have to be dark brown.
2. The straps must be quite thin (but not too thin).
3. NO FANCY DETAILS! Keep it simple, please.
Kate Moss - not dark enough. On the right - PERFECT!
