It took a couple seasons, but gladiators have grown on me. I didn’t think it could happen. While most still aren’t that flattering to me, there are a few styles that I have come across that I wouldn’t mind sliding my feet into. I have found the “Rosenberger” by Aldo Shoes, $75, AldoShoes.com, to be my favorite of the season. They are affordable and comfortable looking, but it was the various colorful textures and hardware that hooked me. Check out my other picks.

“Gazit” by Donald J Pliner, $242.65, Bloomingdales.com.

I’m thinking great for running errands on the weekends

“Rothschild” on sale now for $24.49, NineWest.com.

I can see these with a short, flowing empire west dress for a date.

“Faritta” also on sale for $24.44, AldoShoes.com.

Definitely pair with long, wide leg linen pants for those evening walks on the beach.
