Let's talk about my gladiator sandals for a moment because whenever I post a photo of them on Instagram, I get asked a galore of questions. I used to be part of the I can't wear or pull off gladiator sandals camp until recently. I decided to give them another try and am so glad I did. Finding the perfect pair that fits my calves (without sliding down), hits under the knee and at the right price point was a challenge. After scouring the internet, I found this pair from Free People that had met the criteria listed above.The only downside is that they take a couple of wears to break into so definitely wear band aids behind your ankles unless you want a matching scar with me. After a few wears, they have become one of the most comfortable pairs of sandals that I own and since they're available in 5 colors, I'm debating between picking up another pair in dark grey or black pair. Thoughts?
