Gladiator sandals are a style of footware inspired by historical action films like Russel Crowe's 2000 film 'Gladiator' and almost the same as the ones worn by the Spartans in the movie '300'. This style consists of a flat sole with many straps that go up the leg until just below the knee.
Because of their comfortable and exotic feel and style, these sandals can also be a great alternative to the usual flip flops worn by the petite Filipinas.
Gladiator sandals are known to be very versatile, lending exotic details to many types of outfits. Additionally, the flat soles allow them to be comfortable to walk in like flip-flops.
