Women of the world owe Steve Madden a debt of gratitude. With only a thousand dollars and a desire to let women express individuality through their shoes, Madden singlehandedly built an empire out of creative and feminine footwear designs. Not long ago, our choices were limited. Black or brown? Leather or canvas? When Steve Madden launched his company and offered us purple suede platforms, sparkly ballet flats, and colorful floral pumps, the streets and sidewalks came alive. Upon the launch of his diffusion line—and a foray into accessories and clothing—the designs have gotten even more fun and funky.
There’s something understated yet provocative about these sandals and heels from Steve Madden. It's the reason we're such fans of the brand: Take a feminine silhouette, add a wedge or blocky heel, and you have a crop of sexy footwear that you can wear comfortably all day. Those who prefer to stay grounded will find plenty here to love, too — just choose from the strappy sandals in a crop of neutrals perfect for beating the heat.
