Looking for a Few Wide Calf Gladiators? Here’s 15 fly ones + Some Outfit Inspiration!

Plus size Bloggers in Wide Calf Gladiators on The Curvy Fashionista

The wide calf gladiator is one that is hard to come by. I have tried to write this post about two times and each time, these puppies have sold out! But as we are in the throes of this sweltering heat, I have found not only a few pairs to play in, but also a few plus size bloggers who are working it so fashionably!

Now, if you are wondering where the term Gladiators came from or why they are so damn popular, Just the Design explains it best:

As their name suggests, this trend is modelled on the historic sandals worn by the Roman gladiators. These sandals are known for their signature straps, which can consist of a simple cross-over arrangement cradling the foot and hugging the ankle, but can extend to ornate designs which incorporate panels or motifs and extend above the knee. Heels can be flat, mid-height, or high.

So while we are seeing these sandals everywhere and as plus size fashion is giving us on trend options, why not opt for a pair or three of these wide calf gladiator sandals?

First let me share the finds, because they are moving like hotcakes and then a few inspirations- yes?

  • I love the braided strappy pair from Lane Bryant. I think they would look great with a pair of denim shorts and an oversized flannel or drape.
