Yes, the gladiator sandal is with us again, and love or hate them they’re here to stay. This time the new twist on the now classic gladiator is the metal stud. Imagine Audrey Hepburn starring in Mad Max as our favorite warrior tough girl. What is she wearing on her feet? Why incredibly chic Italian gladiator metal studded sandals, of course! The contrast of the metal adds texture and interest, as metal studs seem to be adorning all types of accessories this season. The metal stud replaces the colored stone as an embellishment. Think tough punk inspired metal trims including zippers, chains and studs on handbags, belts, and jackets.
