Earth Gladiator SandalsEarth has created a pair of gladiator sandals that are as good for the planet as they are for your figure, with this striking pair of summer shoes.

These on-trend sandals look like they're made from your choice of snakeskin or suede, but they're actually crafted from 70% recycled materials. It's a little disappointing that the retailer Gaiam.com doesn't tell us exactly what recycled materials the shoes are sourced from though. I always appreciate that transparency, especially when I believe I'm going green.

It is more forthcoming when detailing the gladiator sandal's technology though. The soles are made from Biofoam, a shock-absorbing material designed to reduce stress on the joints. Earth has also positioned the toe at 3.7 degrees higher than the heel, a minimal shift which maximizes calorie burn and tones your thighs, calves, and gluts. And wouldn't we all love to shed a few pounds just by walking around the beach?

Satisfied customers say they're very comfortable to wear, although they also note that the sizes run a little large. However Gaiam.com guarantees every product it sells, so the return process will be relatively painless if they don't fit quite right.

Earth's Gladiator Sandals are available from Gaiam.com for $139.
