Street style stars may be loving on the “glam Birkenstock” trend this summer, but let’s face it, while they may be comfortable, leather pool slides are NOT the most flattering or sexy shoe. At MSL, we still say THE sandal to own is the gladiator. It’s sexy, comfortable, and versatile (looks great with shorts, a dress or a swimsuit). From the Valentino rockstud version to these more affordable ones from Sam Edelman, gladiators are a staple in our summer wardrobe.
Wear it with:
- The boho lace top and denim boyfriend shorts we recommended earlier.
- Your swimsuit and sassy cover-up for the pool or beach.
- A tee and flared mini-skirt.
- A lace dress – the perfect feminine counterpoint to the edgy studs.
Why moms will love it:
- The studded style says sexy and edgy, but the flat heel says approachable.
- Works for the beach or cocktails paired with your favorite floaty dress.
- Comfortable for a full day of play or lots of walking while on vacation.
- Comes in five colors — choose your favorite!
