Editor's Pros & Cons
Pros

Neoprene and rubber upper material

Fabric sock lining

Rubber sole

1.25 inch platform

Cons

No leather option

Outsole

Outsole

Some classics should never change. Change is not always good, but sometimes it really is. Sometimes the classics can be improved, and Steve Madden Women's Lancer Fashion Sneakers are proof of that. When you have the basic white rubbery outsole, what’s the best way to make that seemingly boring material improved and even more functional? By adding a thick white platform. The outsole of the Steve Madden Women's Lancer Fashion Sneaker is reinforced with a 1.25-inch platform and it brings tons of durability to the sometimes delicate outsole. The outsole of any sneaker is prone to breaking and tearing, but with the addition of the platform, it makes the sneaker highly durable and it extends the sneakers longevity.
Midsole

Midsole

The outsole of the Steve Madden Women's Lancer Fashion Sneaker ads a nice touch, but wait until you found out the detail about the midsole. Made from a soft fabric lining, the midsole ads support to the arches, but what’s most important about it, is that’s optional. Yes, the midsole is removable and it adds support to the arches of your feet. However, if you decide that you’d be better without it you can simply remove it. It’s up to you.
Upper

Upper

If the outsole and midsole didn’t catch your attention, the upper will for sure. The casual look of the Steve Madden Women's Lancer Fashion Sneakers is most presented by the monochromatic look of the upper. Made from Neoprene and rubber, the upper is much quieter in tone, and it really brings out the urban feel that Steve Madden is trying to convey through its merchandise. Regardless if you chose black, white, grey or some other color from the palette, you’ll be greeted with an abundance of simplicity and fashionable chic.

The textile upper is made even more beautiful thanks to the mesh that covers the toes and the heel area of the upper. The color of the mesh matches the exact same color that’s on the textile part of the upper, and to add to the monochromatic look, the laces are done in the same way. They too march everything else in the shoe. If you take a good look at the Steve Madden Women's Lancer Fashion Sneakers, you’ll notice the lack of tongue in the top part of the upper. Yes, the tongue was removed completely for this particular design, and the lip on the design of the shoe is there to make the putting on/off much easier. Who needs to adjust the tongue every time you put on the shoes? No, it’s a waste of precious time. However, laces are a thing of beauty. If you pay attention to the design of the laces, you’ll notice that they start from the upper of the shoes. Yes, 3 little plastic hooks keep them in places at the outsole, and with that classic lace up a pattern, they secure the feet nicely. The laces are much flatter and thicker than the rest of the sneaker laces, and they look beautiful on the crisp classic outsole.
Comfort

Comfort

A number of satisfied customers have praised the comfort that the Steve Madden Women's Lancer Fashion Sneakers give to the entire foot. The comfort stars from the 1.25-inch platform that secures the grip and makes the walking a lot more stable, and ends with the upper. The slip-on structure of the upper ads security without the need of a tongue, and with this, you’ll get the comfort without the hustle of adjusting your sneakers every half an hour.
Support

Support

That gorgeous platform shines a light on another great feature. Here in the Steve Madden Women's Lancer Fashion Sneakers, the platform is responsible for much of the support too. When you have an urban style sneaker like Steve Madden Women's Lancer Fashion Sneaker, it’s critical to nail the support down to a T. and Steve Madden’s team did just that. They nailed the platform, by making it thick, yet comfortable. The support that the platform offers on a daily basis is immense, and you’ll be able to feel that comfort with every step that you take.
Durability

Durability

Made from neoprene and rubber, the upper is made to last a very long time. But that very statement can be said about the entire shoe since plenty of quality features promote the longevity and overall wearability of the Steve Madden Women's Lancer Fashion Sneakers. The thick and lightweight platform that makes wearing the Steve Madden Women's Lancer Fashion Sneakers a lot easier is one thing. But the neoprene and rubber made upper is quite something else. Not only chic in nature, but the upper is also responsible for the shoe’s durability. Omitting the tongue is a nice touch, and the addition of the thick laces is another beautiful touch that brings out the durability and promotes comfort.
Flexibility

Flexibility

Because the Steve Madden Women's Lancer Fashion Sneakers are an everyday walking shoe, the flexibility is a must. Othe rwise, how would you be able to wear them every day? No, Steve Madden focused the flexibility portion of the sneaker in the upper and midsole of the shoe, and it clearly shows. The neoprene and rubber used in the making of the upper bring out most of the flexibility, but the removable midsole is not looking too shabby in this department as well. Regardless if you decide to leave the midsole in the sneaker, or remove it, you’ll get a jolt of flexibility in every step.
Stability

Stability

Stability is one of the key aspects in life but in the art of cobbling it’s basically a requirement. Don’t worry, Steve Madden knows that and tries to implement the stability in practically every shoe design.

That’s why Steve Madden Women's Lancer Fashion Sneakers were made. The biggest portion of that stability comes from the very beautiful white 1.25-inch thick platform located in the shoe’s outsole. Made from the good old rubber, the stability of the Steve Madden Women's Lancer Fashion Sneakers is basic on the look, but amazing on the feel. You’ll never want to part with this shoe, and that platform will become a lifesaver after a long hard day on your feet. And it doesn’t apply strictly to your feet. The stability that the platform brings to the feet will be transferred to the entire body so your posture will improve as well. A win-win for the entire body.
Airflow

Airflow

Oh that gorgeous upper. Not only that it’s gorgeous to look at it’s also practical for the entire foot. Why? Because most of the airflow is done through the fabric sock lining that’s put in the design, and that mesh helps a lot too. The mesh of the shoes is located in the toes and heel area of the Steve Madden Women's Lancer Fashion Sneakers and it not only regulates the airflow it also promotes good stability to the entire foot.
Terrain

Terrain

The urban everyday style of the Steve Madden Women's Lancer Fashion Sneakers means that they’re suitable to be worn in urban everyday terrains. That means the busy and hot streets of the city jungle, unpredictable weather conditions that come with every urban area got nothing on them. They’ll remain perfect even with the challenges of the urban modern lifestyle.
Traction

Traction

The thick platform of the outsole protects the foot from slipping and keeps the traction on high level too. The bottom of the Steve Madden Women's Lancer Fashion Sneakers is equipped with a ridged pattern that positions the feet firmly on the ground and protects you from stumbling down when you’re on slippery or very wet surfaces.
Style
