ET TU, SPARTACUS? ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!

Eyes were popping at 7th and Montana this morning as a Blond Bombshell made the scene teetering on stilettos that made it look like she was walking on stilts. "I just don't understand why women wear those Spartacus Shoes," said Joyce. "Spartacus?!?," I asked, confused. "Sorry," Joyce corrected, "Everyone else calls them Gladiator Shoes ... but I call them Spartacus Shoes." I took a closer look at the shoes, with their six-inch heels and tight, leather straps. Frankly, if this is what the Gladiators -- including Spartacus -- wore, no wonder the Roman Empire fell ...!

No wonder you were confused. Most shows referred as Gladiator shoes are open toed, flat sandals with multiple leather stapping. Strange comparision. (Hugs)Indigo

With Indigo on this one. Google "Gladiator shoes" and you'll see a lot of flat & very strappy sandals.
I'm impressed by anyone who can walk in those heels, but it sure looks goofy. -Cin
