FYU FASHION FACT: Gladiator Sandal is grecian sandal. It is a sandal from Greece and Salento (Italy) which has a (generally flat or low) sole attached to the foot by interlaced straps crossing the toes and instep, and fastening around the ankle.  In 1968, Vogue, which earlier had accessorized Paca Rabanne's futuristic fashions with “laced all the way” sandals, dedicated several pages to “Ganymede—the Greek-boy look.”   The gladiators remained popular throughout the 1970's. However, their popularity died done in the 1980’s and for much of the 1990s.  There was a brief resurrection during Gianni Versace’s 1993 Spring collection. The early 2000’s Calvin Klein marked the beginning of the gladiators’ most recent resurgence of the gladiator sandals.
