Rihanna loves Manolo Blahnik‘s Chaos ankle-strap sandals! In fact, she was one of the first celebrities to get her hands on the shoes, several months before they were released to the public. Rih owns several pairs of Chaos sandals in just about every colour and finish and the brand also makes custom pairs for her like the grey ones she wore in Paris recently. The shoes have been a staple in her closet for the past two years and they should be in yours too.
These ankle-strap sandals are beloved for their chic, minimalist style which allows your carefully put together outfits to shine. Since the Chaos became so popular other brands like Alexander Wang and Stuart Weitzman have churned out their own versions of the barely-there sandals. But if you don’t care to spend hundreds of dollars on the simple heels, I have a solution for you.
Let me introduce you to Steve Madden‘s Stecy sandal. The Stecy retails for $79.95, which is $645 less than the Manolos. The Stecy boasts a comfortable 3.75″ heel, adjustable ankle-strap and is availble in multiple colours like patent black, white, nude and floral. This is a great shoe for work or cocktails with the girls and it won’t hurt your budget. The Stecy is available at Amazon and Steve Madden but if you prefer the Chaos sandals get them at Barneys ($725).
