As object de arte I really like gladiator sandals. I would like them as book ends, or on an end table. I'm never really keen on them once they are on feet. They look a bit grim and I think make the most svelte ankles hideous, (see Gisele for example) but I saw these and thought they were fun and maybe with pants... perhaps skinny jeans hmmmm.... I'm not going to say where I found them because it's demoralizing.
