English We introduce a theoretical approach to describe structural correlations among charged permeable spheres at finite particle concentrations. This theory explicitly accounts for correlations among microions and between microions and macroions and allows for the proposal of an effective interaction among macroions that successfully captures structural correlations observed in poly- N -isopropyl acrylamide microgel systems. In our description the bare charge is fixed and independent of the microgel size, the microgel concentration, and the ionic strength, which contrasts with results obtained using linear response approximations, where the bare charge needs to be adapted to properly account for microgel correlations obtained at different conditions.
