This Must-Have Shoe Will Complete ALL Your Colorful Outfits

This post is sponsored by Marmi Shoes.

My favorite spring and summer trends are bright and colorful. Yours too? I plan to embrace ALL the colors during the warm season this year. You’d think, with all the bright clothing that I wear, that I own a few pairs of shoes in neutral colors. But, no way. Who has time for boring shoes? I like my shoes to be colorful too. And, luckily, I found THE sandal that’ll complement just about every spring/summer color combination.

This must-have shoe is the Vaneli “Bena” sandal from Marmi, a St.Louis-based women’s shoe brand committed to offering fabulous shoes to every woman no matter her shoe size. Seriously, Marmi carries Italian-designed styles in sizes 4-13 at slim, narrow, medium and wide widths.

Marmi Bena Sandals

So, let’s talk about these Marmi Bena sandals. I was instantly drawn to them because of the standout watercolor print and sophisticated silhouette. The artsy print captures all the IT colors of spring and summer, making it the perfect choice to complete any outfit.

The standout print is perfectly balanced by the sophisticated silhouette–an ankle strap, 2 1/2 inch block heel style with a closed back.

When I unboxed this style, I immediately started imagining all the styling possibilities.

Thanks to the amazing weather last weekend, I got to wear my new sandals out and about. For me, they were comfortable right out of the box. By the way, I’m wearing my usual size 8 Medium, so they are true to size.

Like this colorway, but want a lower heel? You must see the Vaneli “Hillie” sandals. The geometric print on that style has a beautiful color combination as well. Also, if you’re a fan of slides like me, you’ll love the Vaneli “Hiba” slides. After much deliberation, I got that style in the orange suede, but they’re also available in fuchsia, taupe, blue, and black.

To demonstrate just how versatile my Bena sandals are, I’m sharing 3 ways I’ve been rocking them so far. In each look, the shoes totally make the outfit!

    FYI for any wide feet women: These are NOT true to size.
    I ordered these shoes online in part because of this beautiful post about them. These are lovely shoes, but if you have wide feet do not be fooled by the wide size options! I wear a 7D (wide) in New Balance runners, a 6.5 or 7 wide in Sam Edelman, a 6.5 wide in LifeStride, a 7 in Torrid shoes and I cannot even begin to get my feet into the 7 wide I ordered in these Vaneli sandals. Very disappointing because I thought I had finally found another cute brand of shoes that carried wide options.

      I’m so sorry about your experience with these sandals, Amy. Thanks for sharing. I encourage you, however, to try another style by the brand. It prides itself on offering the perfect fit for every woman.
