Summer Shoe Must-Have: Jessica Simpson's Studded Sandal

Credit: Dr. Billy Ingram/

I really have to tip my chapeau to Jessica Simpson. I am doing that because this girl produces a line of ultra cool footwear that gets better season after season. Today, I walked into my office wearing a summer sandal called "Katee" and besides my ultra stylish peeps here at Us, my Starbucks barista and a few assorted women on the streets of Manhattan, I have been getting nonstop compliments on this towering inferno.

It's simple. These heels look amazeballs because they're a high heel version of a flat summer gladiator sandal. The natural grain of the wood wedge is stunning, and plays so well against the supple leather upper. (The heel makes me insane -- Jess is shorter than you'd expect and always wears a higher heel -- she's my kind of gal). The combination of both circular and faceted square metal studs make it very exotic. The Katee heel has a 4.6 inch wedge with a 1.2 inch platform.

Available in desert sand or waxy black and sized 5-11, grab whichever is still available -- these heels are flying off store shelves now.

I can see these walking you straight into Indian Summer with Simpson's heels. Paired with a maxi dress you won't trip over, a pair of shorts, or the newer slightly cropped bell bottom pants, these heels will be a fave and a keeper. Also...they're ultra comfortable. Really. You're not dying on vertiginous heels. Yay!
