2. A tie-up gladiator sandal that's simple and comes with a customizable tie feature allowing you to wrap it around your shins in whatever way pleases you.

Promising review: "THIS IS SPARTA These sandals are so cute and they never gave me blisters. They go with so many outfits and rarely ever come untied. The braid is cute and has not ripped at all, like some other reviews have suggested. The only negative is that they are flat as a pancake and my feet can be sore at the end of the day. Overall, if you aren’t worried about arch support I would recommend these to anyone!" — Ashlyn Scott

6. A rubber-soled gladiator sandal , which will help keep you on your toes as you're taking your daily mid-day walk — especially if you're prone to tripping these anti-slip grips have got your back.

Promising review: "Poor quality = summer disappointment :( I ordered these shoes in black and brown as a bday gift to myself this year. Was super excited to find this style of sandal and to find it so cheap. I wore the black pair to work one time and the brown pair to work three times. I have a sedentary office job indoors, so they should be able to handle that no problem. I even took them off to drive to protect the heels and took them off and put them in the closet when I got home. Both were ruined by not picking up my feet enough and tripping while walking on carpet. The material literally rubs right off in one go. A gal at work loved them so much she ordered them too. They're super cute and actually comfy but I would highly recommend NOT purchasing these, unless you only plan on getting one wear out of them. At this point I wouldn't even want an exchange because I'm certain the same thing would happen. Totally disappointed. Total waste of money. I won't purchase from this company again." — Jessie

8. A casual pair of gladiator sandals for anyone looking to keep things simple yet classy, these lil numbers feature a versatile strapping that can literally be dressed up or down, making these basically the ~little black dress~ of your shoe collection.

Promising review: "Great shoe but zipper may be tricky Comfortable handle with nice cushions. 1 strap slightly tight fitting while going over the foot but relaxed for a perfect fit after some wear. One issue I have is the inside zipper cover gets easily stuck in zipper when I try to put them on or off. So I need to fold it back to zip up and then reposition it over the zipper once it is on. One time I almost thought I wasn't going to be able to get out of them. I eventually figured it out but it's a good thing to know. Otherwise perfect shoe." — Jessica

Promising review: "Cute. Cute. Cute. My new go-to sandals. These are so cute, comfortable and affordable. On a size note, the shoe length and width is as expected. The straps, however, are a bit loose - no adjustable ankle strap - so those of you who are also small boned take note. They do stay on fine and are still comfortable so I’ll probably get another color because they are so pretty." — LGray

Promising review: "Statement sandals! Such a beautiful shoe! Very on trend with a modern 90’s vibe. Definitely need to size down as they run large. I’m a 7.5/8 and ordered a size 7. My ankle is slim so I had to lace the laces through the back tag/loop to help stabilize my ankle so it wouldn’t feel very loose when wearing." — Jenny
