Knee High Sandals
Knee high sandals are also called gladiator sandals. The ones designed for women and juniors have delicate straps and come in a range of colors and styles for a fun spin on footwear.
Some of these shoes have a piece that covers the back of the leg from the heel to just under the knee. The straps either wrap around or simply thread through the front part. Either way, it makes it easy to adjust the tightness of the straps for maximum comfort.
The extra material in the back means these are a perfect accessories for wearing with heavier dresses or skirts. In addition, the knee high sandals can go from warm-weather to cool-weather wear, which means they make more appearances.
The straps on knee high sandals work well with wedges. If they are very thin, they lend a more delicate look to the shoes, while thicker ones offset this particular heel style nicely. Wear these with denim shorts for a casual look with a twist.
High heels really give a different look to this type of sandal. Choose very thin straps to match the thinner width of the heel itself. A pair of short shorts (mid-thigh or higher) or a skirt will go well with these. The skirt length can be just above the knee or shorter—either one will look great.
The straps on these shoes are very adjustable. Tie them loosely enough so that skin between the strap spaces stays smooth, but tightly enough so that they stay in place. Just make sure that you don't tie them too tightly, so they will always be comfortable when wearing. Part of the enjoyment of wearing shoes in this style comes from their appearance, as well as the comfort that sandals give.
