‘Color Block’

WSJ. If you didn’t pick up a copy of WSJ. last weekend, fear not, you can still see this beautiful story online.

Gladiators are even better this year than last, and I want these from Valentino Haute Couture—strappy, but not overwhelming—perfection.

  • It’s such a beautiful story, with so many stunning outfits. Love the look of the gladiator sandals, but I think they’d drive me insane actually going up my leg.

  • Gladiator sandals and boots are having such a long run!

  • I like the gladiator look in it’s various interpretations. I hope it has longevity, as I have invested in several styles. I like this look, but the flat and thin sole makes my arches hurt just looking at it! More power to those who can switch off from 4 inch heels to these with no problem.

  • I just don’t get gladiators that wind up the leg. Don’t they leave a print on your leg???
