Gwen has spun the gladiator sandal in her favor. She definitely killed the rumor that black and brown do not go together with the ‘Sunny’ sandal. I love the thin brown straps gathering towards the center and interwoven with the black leather. Take a closer look you and you will be able to see the real difference between Gwen’s gladiator and the other competitors. The ankle strap is done in snake skin, giving this sandal an edge. And I must say…it works.
