‘Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world. Bette Midler.

Whether you choose flats, heels or even laced up to the knee, the gladiator sandal was hot on the runways and is a spring staple for your wardrobe. You can find a host of affordable styles on the high street so think Roman goddess and embrace your inner bohemian by choosing a pair that will make your wardrobe effortlessly chic.
