Sam Edelman Gilda Gladiator Sandals ($110)

Rating: Trust It!

These shoes… oh these shoes. I have owned these shoes for about five years now (shetrusts founder Katherine also has a matching pair) and they are just now starting to show significant wear and tear, after five years of significant wear! When I first got these, I wore them all the time. Naturally, that slowed down a little but they are still a go-to in my closet as they provide a lot of support for being “just a sandal” and are unique (I always get compliments on them), they can dress up an outfit that you don’t want to wear heels with (that's me all the time) or be dressed down with shorts and a tee. I will now trust all Sam Edelman sandals, they are worth every penny-they will last you through multiple seasons!
