Aren’t you glad that gladiator boots (and sandals) always make such a noticeable entrance?

Bold! Aggressive! Fierce! Strappy! Styling!

Whether you want to wear a shoe that shouts brave, or merely wear a shoe that sports aesthetic and sporty, gladiator shoes and sandals will never disappoint.

A gladiator (swordsman) was an armed combatant who entertained audiences in the Roman Republic and Roman Empire in violent confrontations with other gladiators, wild animals and condemned criminals. Characteristics sought after to depict true gladiators are strong, brave and aggressive, never backing down.

Gladiators dressed to kill from head to toe – literally!

Whether your preference is gladiator boots, high heels, or sandals, your feet will be glad to step out in gladiator shoes.

Gladiator Fun Fact: Gladiators offered spectators an example of Rome’s martial ethics, and in fighting or dying well, they could inspire admiration and popular acclaim. They were celebrated in high and low art, and their value as entertainers was commemorated in precious and commonplace objects throughout the Roman world.

Regardless of sport, fashion always finds a way to make it all about the look.

Gladiator Fun Fact: The games reached their peak between the 1st century BC and the 2nd century AD, and they finally declined during the early 5th century after the adoption of Christianity as state church of the Roman Empire in 380. Beast hunts, however, continued into the 6th century.

Release your inner fashion beast and give your feet a fiery feast!

Okay, gladiator boots do look rad, but they are just a bit too much for my more reserved fashion sense, you say? Never fear, classy gladiator heels will save the day yet keep you in a provocative look that’s here to stay. Fun fashion footwear.

Wearing gladiator shoes takes some guts, and definitely cool confidence. Isn’t that what fashion risks are all about?

The gladiator’s oath as cited by Petronius (Satyricom, 117): “He vows to endure to be burned, to be bound, to be beaten, to be killed by the sword.”

Ouch! Big time ouch! The sport has died out, but courage and strength live on! The sport has become the most recognized symbol of historical Roman culture.

Hey, we just want to look stunning in our favorite footwear. No harm done here.

Make your feet smile, glad to walk a mile in gladiator shoes. I could never wear such loud, over-the-top shoes, you think. Just try it, you might like it.

Glad for gladiator boots!
