The Warren Sandal by Madewell
You have your strappy heeled sandals, you have your flat gladiators, and you have your faithful Birkenstocks. What about a pair for just in the middle? What about when you want to have a slightly elevated look without totally sacrificing comfort? I direct you now to the Warren Sandal, the holy grail for those in between situations where donning stilettos would look like you were trying too hard but you need something a little nicer than a flat. These bad boys have some serious versatility. Wear them with a sweet dress and a leather jacket to give a little edge to an unsuspecting piece. They'll also make the simplest of t-shirt and jeans combinations look like you put in a little more effort. They're even a bit reminiscent of a pair of Givenchy sandals from a few years back, without the hefty price tag. So while you could stick to the same flat sandal styles that, let's face it, are due for an update anyways, you could have the effortless cool look we're always chasing after. What could be better? Go get 'em!
