Where shall I begin?? Oh right, the beginning! Steve Madden has been around for a long time, but it seems in recent years he has become one of the main forefront leaders in affordable women’s shoes. He’s known for his eccentric designs, sparkle and glitter (yay!), and innovative colors and aesthetics in his designs. Basically, you’re REALLY into his shoes, or not so much. For some, his shoes are a little too wild. No disrespect, but go big or go home! From tennis shoes to heels to combat boots to everything in between, he’s got it going on right now. And I am loving it!
What began as a modest $1100 investment in 1990 has developed into one of the most iconic brands in footwear. From a factory in Queens, NY, Steve Madden has revolutionized the shoe industry, merging years of experience with unique and creative designs. Inspired by rock and roll and his New York roots, his vision to provide on-trend women and men with an outlet to express their individuality is innovative, daring, and inspiring. Steve’s innate understanding of trends and unparalleled willpower have resulted in millions of customers worldwide and propelled his designs to the forefront of fashion. He has expanded the Steve Madden brand into a true lifestyle and destination for footwear, handbags and accessories, sold in over 80 countries worldwide. It’s about authenticity. It’s about embracing individuality. It’s Steve Madden.”
I’ve included some of his wildest, most daring pairs of shoes on the market right now. Now, some of you may say, “I’d wear that, and that, etc.”, while others are cringing their noses up at all the crazy styles (which I happen to love and even own quite a few pairs). But even if these aren’t your particular style, you must admit they are beautiful. Also, if you feel as though they aren’t your style, I’d say to give them a try and see what you think. You may be pleasantly surprised! If these ARE your style, then you are chomping at the bit to get a pair, or three.
As you can see by the above styles, they are eccentric, on-trend, and major statement makers, which is who Steve Madden is all about. He stays true to himself and the world loves that! I, myself, have become an even bigger fan of Steve Madden in the past few years because of this. And c’mon, look these shoes?! They are incredible!
Shoes aren’t all that Steve Madden has dipped into in the retail market. He finds a niche and just goes for it – Handbags! His handbags are as colorful and eccentric as his shoes. Here is just a small preview:
I work at a major retailer in the shoe department, so I have first-hand knowledge about how popular his styles really are (and I get first dibs ha!). His popularity doesn’t seem to be diminishing anytime soon. If anything, he’s getting more popular! This makes it that much more fascinating and unbelievable that his vision and company started with only $1,100 in a warehouse in the Meat Packing District in NYC!

Thanks for reading, my friends! Now go get yourself some wild Steve Madden shoes and get out of your comfort zone! He IS my comfort zone, as you can see, so I’ll just keep buying my fave shoes from the iconic Steve Madden!
