Gladiator sandals are more of a look than a trend at this point. It can take guys a while to come around to a new look and the idea of gladiators for men has been knocking around since 2008/2009. That may seem like another era but gladiators are still coming down the runways (Ann Demeulemeester) and still being picked up by buyers. Sandals in general are having a moment (see Kim Jones’ brilliant travel sandals for Louis Vuitton). So will this be the summer that gladiator sandals jump the (main stream) gender gap and become a summer staple for guys?

If you decide to go for it there are plenty of options in every price range. Here are a few.
