Meet your new favorite spring shoes: the Marlee Tea Party Jazz Sneakers from 80%20. The label was named after designer Ce Ce Chin’s theory that we wear our favorite 20% of our wardrobe 80% of the time (so true!). Thus, her mission to design the perfect lifestyle shoes began. These sneakers are a stylish option for comfortable spring footwear - they will look sweet paired with boyfriend jeans or a basic dress.
