The gladiator trend not only didn't fade, it's coming back for spring bigger and better than last year. Sandals from last summer will still work, but you'll be missing out on the fun new looks the original has spawned since then. We scoured the web and found some great finds for every taste and price range.
Studs: Add some subtle bling to your spring footwear with the Kors by Michael Kors Tajines Gladiator ($225).
The Fringe: Keep the fringe trend alive with these Kenneth Cole Sandals in Ash, Black, or Fuschia ($195).
Caged: BCBG's Gianni Sandal ($204) plays on the fashion-forward caged trend we spotted a few months ago.
Colored: Venture away from basic black with Michael Antonio's Purple Chai ($35).
Wedge It: Pour La Victoire Murielle Gladiator Wedges ($225) may seem intimidating at firs, but the wedge is easier to walk in than pointy stilettos.
