Let’s face it: Sofia Richie has all the power these days. Ever since her South of France wedding to music executive Elliot Grainge a few weeks ago, the internet hasn’t stopped talking about her, her makeup routine, and, most often, her style. Practically everything she wore to her wedding or afterward has subsequently gone viral and sold out. So when she wore an outdated sandal trend not once but two times during her honeymoon, I got the feeling that, with the level of clout she has right now, they might go from out to in. As it happens, I was right.
The summer footwear style in question is gladiator sandals, which peaked in the mid-2010s only to live in fashion purgatory ever since. It wasn’t until Richie wore two pairs—one from The Row with a poplin Prada shirtdress and another from Gianvito Rossi with a sparkling gold Rodarte dress—that hope for the sandals really set in. Ahead, shop all of the chicest gladiator sandals on the market this season. Oh, and don’t forget to thank the newlywed when you snag a pair for yourself.
