There is arguably no more timeless spring-and-summer essential than the gladiator sandal. A fervent look through the decades, and the shoe remains the go-to for a romantic yet comfortable warm-weather ensemble. The style is back, again, and it makes the perfect accompaniment to your festival-ready looks this season—while working just as seamlessly with your breezy frocks back home. Luckily, there are as many options this season as there are chances to wear them, be it the casual luxe of a well-heeled pair by Tibi or the dramatic elegance of Valentino’s leg-lacing style, the newest offerings have you covered for wherever your Spartan-esque adventures may take you.Photographed by Bruce Weber, Vogue, April 2015
