Never mind the Oscar-winning Russell Crowe film—I associate gladiator sandals with Kate Moss and Sienna Miller in the early 2000s. I am a fashion editor, after all, not a history or movie buff. And just like many other Y2K trends, including the miniskirt and its cousin, the skort, gladiator sandals have officially inserted themselves into the fashion conversation this year.

One of the trend’s leaders is Valentino, which paid homage to the ancient Greeks and Romans by showing knee-high flat sandals on the S/S 22 runway. Bridgerton‘s Simone Ashley then quickly proved the shoes could translate to the red carpet when she wore them to an event in Italy. Below, see how Daisy Edgar-Jones, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Bella Hadid styled the trend recently, and shop the best gladiator sandals for yourself.
