Summer 2015 looks like it’s going to be the season of lace-up gladiator sandals. We had an inkling that these knee- or thigh-high caged designs were going to be big this season, and it still seems to be going strong. While these sandals are very trendy, some people have expressed confusion over how to incorporate such a bold shoe into their wardrobes.

Victoria Beckham is a woman of excruciatingly refined and focused taste when it comes to shoes. (We mean that in a good way.) She loves Manolo Blahnik BB Pumps, and she also loves Casadei Blade Pumps, and that’s that. Here she is wearing a black suede pair of the latter while shopping in downtown NYC. You can currently find a pair of Victoria’s exact pumps for $565 at farfetch.com.

Kylie Jenner wore a pair of gorgeous Tamara Mellon Honeycomb Knee-High Sandals to the launch of the new Kendall + Kylie Topshop capsule collection in LA. Her orange dress is actually a piece from the new line. These sandal boots can’t currently be found online, but you can find a nice selection of Tamara Mellon sandals at Saks.

While the full, “LA-inspired” Kendall + Kylie line is currently available in US Topshop stores, it seems it may have already mostly sold out online, as only three Kendall + Kylie pieces remain in Topshop’s US online storefront.
