From the moment I saw these Gladiator Barefoot Sandals, I was in love! I was always a huge fan of the sexy string wraps of espadrille sandals. I believe they were popular in the 80s. I couldn’t wear them, of course. Well, *naturally*! LOL My ankles are too weak to wear wedge heels.
So, being a child of the 80s, I was so drawn to these Gladiator Sandals because they’re perfect.

They’re everything sexy that I remember about the sandals I loved and they don’t have that blasted wedge heel! Woot!
Add to all this goodness that I loathe wearing shoes and go barefoot all the time and you’ve got a winning combination.
I probably won’t ever be finding a place to wear something like this. I don’t go many places and I’m at least two days away from a beach by car.
But, I see absolutely no reason why I can’t flit around the house like a beach fairy. ha!
If the Gladiator Barefoot Sandals are just a bit too much for you, Celina has also released this Sassy version. Celina has graciously made both of these patterns available for free on her website.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, etc. on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out, if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
