It’s crowned the heads of royals and outfitted the bodies of pharaohs, and today, it hangs from the necks of rappers and separates the best of the best from everyone else at the 2012 Olympics. So, after all these years, gold has never failed to dazzle us.
While it’s true that no gold medal is given when it comes to fashion, we can at least swathe our feet in its metallic, emblematic glory. In honor of our Olympic hopefuls, we've handpicked an assortment of golden sandals to gild your gait, from Grecian flats (chariot wings included) to skyscraper-high wedges. Go ahead and skim through our metallically minded collection. Put your best foot forward and make sure that this summer, you award yourself the (footwear) gold.
