IMG_0232 According to Telluride Inside… and Out’s fashion maven Kristin Holbrook of Two Skirts, this summer in Telluride and around the country the focus is definitely on being a slave to fashion – starting from the bottom up with your shoes.

Gladiator shoes were first spotted in the Spring 2005 collections of Balenciaga and Imitation of Christ, In its four-year run, the style was reinterpreted by designers from Azzedine Alaia to Aldo. The trend really gathered a head of steam when a pair of gladiator spikes were spotted on Sarah Jessica Parker in “Sex and the City,” the movie, last summer.
