Glam Glads

Its not summer all over the world yet but its fast approaching..and the hottest footwear on the block is set to be the glam gladiator.

Tha gladiator itself isn't new, this will be its 3rd summer in a row..but it is getting a liitle more sexy and a lot more glamourous. Think luxurious finishes, exotic skins, stud detailing, bedecked with bling and metallics always look great on pretty pedicured tootsies.

Here's my best of the bunch.

ASOS £28
The stud detail on these tan leather gladiators takes it up a notch or two in the style stakes.


The authentic looking muted gold croc on these Dolce Vitas make them glamour deluxe at a fantastic price of $90.



Loved Giuseppe Zanottis since I first set eyes on them many moons ago. I love the rose gold leather on these....and aside from the fact that they probably take half an hour to put on, at $795...it will be many moons before I get a pair for myself.


These gold glamazons are from Jessica Simpson's collection. Not bad, missy, not bad. And only $79.


I am loving the two tone effect snakeskin on these stylish and comfy looking pair from everyone's 'favourite retailer' M&S..at £29.50, me likey.


I love the simplicity of K Jacques. A little (now large) family business started in St Tropez in the 30s which has now has a star studded client list. Nice work. At $244 they're pricey but each pair is made to order with premium quality leather in your choice of colour.

Uzo said...

LOL...Jesus of Nazereth shoes...

I have called gladiators this name for so many years. Reminds of of the sandals that the disciples and the guy that played Jesus wore in the very famous series shown every easter in nigeria with Robert Powell as the blue eyed Jesus...
