step it up...

Gladiator sandals.

I've never worn a pair in my life, but even so when I came across these ones over at

Net-a-porter I had to take another look..

Is it just me? I was pretty surprised to see that these are made by Nike.

This is the 'Lunarsandiator Sky Hi' .

They explain it saying that it wedges merge the label's innovative sports technology with a chic Gladiator-inspired sandal. Nike make and sell 120million pairs of shoes every year. I instead prefer to imagine that one of the designers sitting at her desk one day decided to try and create something a little bit more fashion for herself to relieve the boredom of yet creating yet another pain of air max...
