Warm weather is all about feeling free and comfortable in our skin – and our clothes. That doesn’t mean we’re just going to throw on any ratty tee and sneaker and call it a “look,” though. If we’re going to be spending more time outdoors, we’re going to need even more cute outfits than we had in the cold. But how to turn tank tops and cotton tees into stylish statements? With the perfect pair of shoes!
The Steve Madden Irenee Sandal is the easiest way to turn a minimal getup into a show-stopper. According to shoppers, they “go with everything from jeans to dresses” and can be worn for “long hours” at a time with no discomfort! One even said they wore these heeled sandals to a wedding, not taking them off all day, and their feet “didn’t hurt at all.” Nearly everyone “highly recommends” these versatile shoes, calling them both “beautiful” and “cute!”
These shoes are “tall on style but short in height” with a 2-inch chunky, wrapped heel. This height is perfect for everything from backyard barbecues to red carpet events!
The upper is made of varying leathers, depending on the shade we choose, from suede, to smooth, to patent. The lining is leather as well! There’s a strap at the rounded toe, which is complemented by a skinnier buckle-strap up at the ankle, which is adjustable for a snug fit that’s sure to stay put.
One unexpected bonus that comes with these Steve Madden sandals is the lightly-cushioned footbed. So many sandals are completely flat and hard, but why should we sacrifice comfort just because we want to stay cool in the heat? It’s possible to have both, and we can with the Irenees.
These heels are currently available in 11 colors. There’s even a multi-color floral-patterned heel in there we can find if we click through! Other fun colors include Royal Blue Suede, which is a gorgeously vivid shade, or Sunflower, which is a summery pineapple yellow!
If we want a simple black shoe, there are both suede and patent leather options to choose from. If we’d prefer a white shoe, we have that option too!
Hoping for a neutral? There are plenty to go around! Blush, a nude with a slight pink tinge, comes in two different finishes. There’s also Light Grey Suede, which is a taupe shade we’re madly in love with. The final two colors are Tan Nubuck and the darker Chestnut Suede, which almost hints at red. Almost. We’d like to take this time to note that Chestnut Suede is on sale for almost 40% off! That is all.
Just kidding. That wasn’t all. We just can’t go yet without expressing our love for these Irenee sandals one last time! Whether we’re wearing them with a simple romper, a flowing mididress or denim shorts and a band T-shirt, these shoes are always going to be there to take our outfit from a 5 to a 10. Or a 10 to a 20. Or beyond! The shoe envy is going to be real, so prepare for stares!
