    Steve Madden’s knee-high caged gladiator sandal are on the style-rise as temps heat up. Leather upper with multi-buckle closures and back zip for easy on-and-off.   To style SPARTA, nothing else is needed but a flowy summer dress and a trendy pair of sunglasses. Even a casual t-shirt and denim cutoffs will suffice. If you’re itching to glam up your look, opt for a sexy mini dress and let the shoes do all the talking (and walking).

    SPARTA is rated 4.1905 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features = Great fit Disclaimer: I have not worn them a full day yet. However, theses gladiator sandals fit great! I purchased them at the recommendation of the "Girl with Curves" blog because I have very healthy calves and it's hard to find ANY shoe/boot that fits my calves. Although it takes a little time because there are so many, I apprecaite being able to adjust the straps all the way up for a comfortable fit. Looking forward to wearing them on vacay!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is SPARTAAA!!! Fun Sandals!! They bring extra flavor to your outfit. Love that they have adjustable straps. Though I had the straps fitting comfortably on my legs, they seemed to start slouching down my legs after a while and I had to pull them up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love them! Im normally an 8 1/2 in the sandals but I got a 9 in the black and they fit great! I get tons and tons of compliments when I wear them and they just help to step up a plain outfit and make it feel a little more fun or funky to fit my mood. Only recommendation is to make sure you tighten the belts or else the strap that goes up your leg in the middle can kind of slump. Great purchase

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Sandal - expensive for the quality I purchased these shoes a month ago in the Platinum/Gold color. Don't get me wrong I REALLY like them - they are definitely one of my favorite sandals. My only complaint is because of the material of the straps they look worn. When I first ordered them one sandal looked brand new and the other looked like it already had been worn about 10 times. I returned it and ordered a new pair, but it was such a hassle. No Steve Madden store in my area had them or anywhere close to my state! I had to have them shipped again it took forever and now I have two sandals that don't look as new as my first one but not nearly as worn as the other. Overall I am very happy with them and I would suggest them to a friend. If you are the time of person though that every scuff or wrinkle will bug you - I suggest getting the black over the lighter color. Also, the zipper is really hard to pull up for some reason. Other than that I am a size 6 and it fits true to size. The straps are adjustable so you can fit them to the size of your calf!
