So if you’re not doing the maxi, and are all about the shorter hemline’s this season then here’s your shoe tip. Ken Downing, VP and Fashion Director for Neiman Marcus, hand picks the gladiator sandal as the best of the bunch to ground your look no matter how short you go.

I’m not sure about the Marc Jacobs jelly gladiator (I think Shoewawa summarizes my perplexity) or the thigh high versions, but for Giueseppe Zanotti is hands down the man that knows this trend.

I could unleash my inner Greek goddess in any of these, but my pick for this summer trend is the brown patent, six strap version flats – bottom left.
