Kelly sent me a “Find Me” request and asked me to help her find some “sturdy” gladiator sandals (my description! I mean, good for walking A LONG TIME in) in bronze or gold metallic. I kind of got sucked down the rabbit hole at Zappos, clicking through “recommended” items, etc., but I found some good ones, that are also pretty cute. Of course, as soon as I heard “gladiator” I thought of the Gentle Souls Break my Heart sandal which I’ve been lusting over forever, but they don’t come in bronze metallic. Also love these Eileen Fisher sandals with a slight wedge, but they don’t look substantial enough for lots of walking.
Here are some I found that I think should work for Kelly – they all got very good reviews (Kelly, the bronze metallic qualifier was the hardest part!!!):
1 Naot Dorith sandal | $137 at Zappos (Naot has a lot of good options)
2 Gentle Souls Blinque sandal | $195 at Zappos (a few other colors are on sale at Nordstrom for $97)
3 Born Jill Crown collection | $125 at Zappos
4 Softwalk Torino sandal | $99
Of course, I’d also be remiss if I didn’t throw out the Mephisto Helen sandals, ($135 at Zappos in BRONZE!). They’re not exactly gladiator sandals, but I pretty much think they’re the best sandals EVER. Especially if you’re into comfort. I love the way they look too :))
More sandals I love, but didn’t necessarily fit Kelly’s color requirements (some are also pictured below):
Taos Trophy sandal | $99 at Zappos
Gentle Souls bless pine | $185 at Zappos
Gentle Souls Bless Art | $185 at Zappos
Gentle Souls break my heart | $195 (I have been wanting a pair of these forever…these are the “gladiator” sandals I’d get, in gray or brown though)
Naya Hilary | $125 at Zappos
Eric Michael Miami sandal | $90 at Zappos
Ugg salah sandal | $125 at Zappos
Do you have any other recommendations? What’s your go-to brand for comfort/sturdy sandals?
