It could be therapeutic to fight your mortal enemies to death. (Assuming you win, of course.) Or you can dress the part of a gladiator and slay them with your style. And that’s where Matt Bernson bullies his way in. The brilliant Tribeca-based shoe designer knows a thing or two about combining comfort with elegance. His bead-studded, leather gladiator flats are skillfully made in Brazil and have an exotic, raw quality. It won’t be easy choosing between metallic silver and gold, but once you do your opponents will be pounding the pavement with envy. Which couldn’t be more fitting. Available at Cabana, 9115 Devonshire Drive (214-674-9928). To see styles, go to mattbernson.com.
