Gladiator sandals. Love them or hate them? Personally, I love them. I am on the hunt for the perfect knee-high gladiator sandals for summer. The Steve Madden sandals (left) are cost-effective and sleek. The Sam Edelman sandals (middle) are moderately priced and with that brand, you know they are comfortable. The Stuart Weitzman sandals (right) are pure perfection – nothing more to say there. Which do you prefer?
