With the gladiator sandal
They were everywhere: SS15 catwalks; Coachella; Instagram; the high street; and now……….a version of the gladiator sandal has graced my shoe closet. I've essentially lived in my over-the-knee suede and leather boots for the past few months but now I've substituted those winter boots for some, boho-style summer boots, at least for the next few months anyway.
I’ve hankered after the mid-calf leather gladiator sandals for a while, but with not being a massive fan of my legs - and these shoes do draw attention to your legs - I vetoed the idea of ever owning a pair. I was also concerned, having inherited my mother’s genes for large calves, that they would be an ill-fit - #girlproblems. Fast-forward to a Sunday night browsing the online stores on my iPAD: 4 days later the delightful sandals were ready for collection at my local Topshop store. If you don’t buy, you can’t try, right? I'm glad I tried because they fit better than expected; I think if they were zip fastening only, I’d have had to return them, however the lace up front means I can adjust the tightness to accommodate my lower leg.
Once the weather really warms up and I make some time for a good ole’ professional leg wax I can hopefully wear them some place other than my back garden!
