    No matter your opinion on gladiator sandals — whether you've embraced the trend or avoided it at all costs — it's about time you wise up to the new iterations for summer. The strappy shoes are anything but ancient history. Reimagined in glam metallics and eye-catching patterns with sleek accents and unexpected details, this season's version is a little more sophisticated. Sorry, Russell Crowe; we have a feeling that you won't be so into these.

    While the steppers have gotten a bad rap for being hard to pull off, the latest offerings feature varying strap heights to flatter a range of legs. Click through to shop our favorites, and try to channel your Herculean strength to resist buying every last pair.
