Gladiator Chic - Koolaburra Spring 2013 shoe trend

The gladiator theme was all over the Spring ’13 runways: from Tom Ford’s knee-high boots paired with sexy skirt suits to Alexander Wang’s athletic versions worn with futuristic dresses, there were lots of interpretations of the classic footwear theme to choose from this season.

Koolaburra takes on popular trend in a modernized gladiator twist for the boho city girl with the RIVA sandal [$109]. The bright flash of neon color along the leather bound sole makes the Riva a must-have accessory for the upcoming season.

The Riva’s wide leather strap across the middle and collar ankle closure offer comfy support, while a thin toe strap detail adds a chic Mediterranean vibe. Available in an assortment of color ways, including the fashionably bold combinations of Coffee with Neon Tangerine, Truffle with Electric Yellow, and Navy with Bright Turquoise, as well as the low-key basics Black and Nude. Pair the Riva with rolled up jeans and fitted blazer for an effortlessly chic outfit for the weekend. It’s the perfect wardrobe addition for every hippy-chic fashionista!

The multiple straps of the AZORE [$139] sandals and the fringe on the VENUS II [$139] are other gladiator-inspired looks in Koolaburra’s Spring/Summer ’13 collection.
