Now that the warm weather has hit, I definitely have the urge to bust out a new look or trend for the new warmer season! Having said that, a statement piece that is always known to turn heads can always be found in a great pair of shoes. This Spring, in my opinion, the must-have that made its way on the runway is the gladiator sandal, with a heel.
As of right now, the only ones that have caught my eye are definitely in the higher price range but I'm sure Jeffery Campbell and Steve Madden will be creating affordable knockoffs! I have to give it to Rihanna -- she sparked my interest in these intense paris of heels or boots because she has rocked them multiple times.
Here Rihanna is seen wearing a pair of Balenciaga Gladiator Boots.

Alexander Wang designed this fantastic shoe in both white, silver, and black and also created another style for a more drastic pair of gladiator heels.
Another fashionable celebrity that stepped out in this statement piece goes by the name of Jennifer Lopez. Jennifer Lopez chose the Jimmy Choo gladiator sandal with a sleek white dress. She looks amazing as always. Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna can do no wrong in my eyes when it comes to rocking a new style or their fashion sense.
Other designers that brought this "love it or hate it" trend to the runway for their Spring shows were Acne, Altuzarra, and Marios Schwab.
So get crazy this Spring with this hot and fun new trend!
