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 platforms and boots from Steve Madden and Joe's Jeans, and it's the reason we're such fans of the two brands. Both take classic shoe silhouettes, add a heel and a few edgy details, and the result is sexy booties, pumps, and boots that women can wear comfortably all day. Those who prefer to stay grounded will find plenty here to love, too; have your pick from the selection of flat booties.
Sandals, pumps, ballet flats, and more in a warm weather palette
With its perfect mix of rugged and sexy, it's hard to go wrong with a heeled hiker — especially when you're choosing from brands like Seychelles, Gunmetal, and Kelsi Dagger. Your options are almost limitless: For extra wear-all-day comfort, go for a cool wedge; pull out all the stops in a tall suede number with hook details; or pick something in between from our mix of cool buckled and lace-up booties.
