Steve Madden Tide Review
If you thought that celebrities only wear Manolo’s and Louboutin’s and Chanel you’d better think again. There are plenty of TV, movie and reality stars that pt to a good affordable shoe, and more often than not, their go-to option is a Steve Madden shoe.
The Steve Madden shoes have become a symbol for versatility, chic and affordability and effortless style not just to the working moms, but to the celebrities like Lady Gaga, Heidi Klum, Taylor Swift and so much more.
But the thing is, all of them fall in love with the simplicity, comfort and classic design that coincidently embodies the American way of life. Practical and easy-going. Perfect for any man or a woman that loves to look amazing in cruelty-free man-made shoes styled with timeless designs.
But the Steve Madden Tide Sandal is the topic of this review. That simplicity mentioned earlier embodies every inch of this sandal, and the ease that you get by wearing it will be a pleasant surprise even for the pickiest fashionistas.
Slip on design
No leather option
You know what you’re getting from the first time that you lay your eyes on the sandals, let alone when you first put them on. But the woven upper pairs perfectly with the clear fines lines of the synthetic outsole. Together they create one chic, versatile union that’s so comfy and fashionable that you’ll get why celebrities love the Steve Madden shoes. But in Tide’s case, the style is only matched by the quality of the materials and the craftsmanship. The woven man-made textured upper is the first thing that pops in your eyes when you watch the sandals, and you don’t even mind that there isn’t any form of detailing on it. No, the woven pattern is expressive enough, and it really doesn’t need anything else. Putting sequences or any other embellishment would be the equivalent of having too heavy makeup on a gorgeous lady that radiates with natural beauty.
Why go through all that hustle, when you can let the natural style and beauty of the shoe shine and be recognized by the trendy ladies of all ages? And the thing is, the shoes are versatile and ageless. Ladies in their 20’s can wear them with confidence and sassiness and ladies in their 50’s can wear them with the same confidence. All that’s important is that the Tide sandal knows no age limitations and no style boundaries. Why? Because the sandal looks amazing on almost every outfit in your closet. Your laidback events will get an upgrade, and the fact that you can show off your latest pedicure is just an added bonus really.
Easy, slip-on construction
And what can be improved in the Tide sandal. Well, the midsole first comes to mind. The midsole doesn’t have any padding, which could put a strain on your arches, after a prolonged period of time on your feet. Sure, the flat heel helps with the comfort, but it would be nice if the padding is there, even just so slightly. A little cushioning in the outsole would clearly improve the comfort, stability, and flexibility of the sandal, in more ways that you can imagine. Frankly, the lack of padding is one of the few flaws that this sandal has. Having a slight cushioning would make all the difference here, despite the fact that this is an open toe silhouette sandal designed for the more casual type of occasions.
The Tyde sandal is perfect for the summer nights when you’re just not in a mood of wearing formal shoes to an informal event. The hustle, the heat, and the laidback occasion are the perfect excuse to put on these sandals and enjoy the breeze in the entire foot, not just in the toe area. They’re comfortable, they’re simplistic, and they’re just made for laid back outings that don’t require putting too much effort and brain cells usage. One of those days when you can wear shorts with the same passion and freedom as you would wear your favorite summer dress. And the only thing that you’d change is the outfit, not the accessories. But those days exist and you should take full advantage of sandals like the Tide model from Steve Madden. Comfortable, affordable, cruelty-free shoes that are adored by celebrities and ordinary average people all around the world. And the Tide model is a perfect specimen for every occasion.
