Some things need to stay ancient history!

This is one shoe fad you will not be catching me in anytime this lifetime! I am sorry but these have to be the most unflattering sandals ever, which is why they were originally invented for brawny, sweaty, hairy soldiers enduring ancient battlegrounds.

This is one fashion I personally think is just plain ugly, whatever your age or size these are not going to do you any favours. Plus I bet your legs look great after a day in these exposed to the sun, that's definitely a set of tan lines it would be hard to hide!

This is when I am most happy I don't live near a fashion capital anymore and can happily ignore silly trends like this!

Sarah, I agree that is one sandal that will never grace my footsies!! That girl needs to donate them to the nearest roman soldier!

Oh, I would have loved these back in the day. I can't believe they are making a come-back. One year trend, then done. I agree -- Don't waste your money!

GROSS! Gladiator shoes should certainly stay out of fashion.

Well, it's certainly interesting that's for sure. The Roman soldiers must have liked them. But then again, I don't think crocs look all that pretty either...still I'm thinking of buying one.
