Just really quickly, I want to apologize for not being able to send a daily dose of crochet beauty to you for a couple of weeks. I got very sick after teaching at the Knit & Crochet Show in Manchester, New Hampshire at the end of July and I’m just now feeling a bit better, at least well enough to be able to find some daily crochet beauty. 🙂
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. 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.
