    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).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy with Sparta Glue showing around the bottom, also the zipper was stiff and very hard to zip up and down on both shoes. I wanted to keep them but I was afraid the zipper would I got a refund.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy this product again Missed the first sale. Definately bouht them on the second sale. Love these Roman sandals. They do need to be broken in. Recommend leather spraying to soften up at first. I did though buy the next size up due to the width of sandal. Overall, love the adjustable straps and the versatility of sandal. Ashame it didn't come in more colours. Definately recommend to others. Steve Madden shoes are always great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Love those gladiators! Bought them in both colors, black and platinum. They look stunning! I thought there were reasonably priced, they fit well, true to size and the straps are adjustable to accomodate different leg witdh. they are medium to narrow around the foot though, so if your feet are wide, they might be a bit tight. The leather is really nice. I highly recommend them! Wish they came in other colors, would definately buy them.
