Make space in your shoe-drobe for Steve Madden
Look to Steve Madden for showstopper shoes to pull your whole look together. The designer cites his NYC roots as the source of inspiration for his edgy aesthetic. So whether it's a pair of skyscraper heels or funky-print sandals, expect footwear with attitude.
Classic designs given the Steve Madden treatment
Steve Madden brings his signature rebellious streak to your shoe collection. From boots to sandals to trainers, each pair is a classic design with a touch of drama. Chelsea boots are a timeless option and Madden makes them VIP-worthy with premium leather and suede. Look for styles with exposed chunky zips that reveal the fashion house's rock 'n' roll influence.
Meanwhile, for the guys, brogues and loafers step up your smarter wear. Details like contrast stitching or panelled textures give each piece the signature Madden flair. Lace-ups walk the line between smart and casual with jeans, while polished brogues in rich hues can be reserved for best with that suit.
Make a statement with heavy embellishment
One thing that sets Steve Madden footwear apart from the crowd? The designer doesn't shy away from embellishment. Metal hardware details like studs and chains bring an edge to everything from ankle boots to casual slip ons. Choose a pair of boots with a chunky sole to toughen up that midi dress, throw on a biker jacket for a rock finish or a slouchy knit to tone it back.
For a more feminine feel, look out for shoes that have glitter embellishments. Sandals with glistening straps are a simple way to elevate your holiday look. Try a pair bejewelled with bright gemstones to add sparkle to a bikini and kaftan or maxi dress.
Why stop at shoes? Steve Madden branches out into bags too. Expect the classic shapes – from totes to clutches – with exaggerated details. Backpacks are elevated in textured leather, pick a quilted design for even more luxe appeal. Clutches have been given contrast metal straps for added edge. Meanwhile, bumbags bring the colour with bright blocked designs.
On safari with Steve Madden's animal prints
Steve Madden is all about helping you to show off your wild side. Animal prints and the fashion house's desire to make a statement go hand in hand. Work the trend in a pair of snake-effect boots – double fashion points for a pair with a pointed toe. Wear with a midi skirt and a jumper for effortless sophistication.
A subtle way to add animal prints to your look is with a pair that has patterned panels. Try trainers with leopard-print heels for a glimpse of attitude. While you're on your shopping safari look out for more unique prints in striking colourways – is that a zebra we see?
Step right up for footwear with a sporty influence
When it comes to sneakers, Steve Madden makes them loud and proud with extra pops of colour. Choose from sportswear staples designed to satisfy a catwalk aesthetic – think chunky shapes and mixed textures. Low tops with contrasting white soles add contrast to a minimalist look. If you prefer to make a statement, try a colour-blocked pair. Team with tailored trousers and a crew neck tee for a sporty take on smart wear.
High-top canvas trainers have been given the house's signature treatment with a palette of dark, almost goth-inspired, shades. Take that thought one step further with a leather pair. Wear with painted-on skinnies and a ruffled blouse for a fresh take on romantic allure, or wear with a midi dress to give feminine charm a grunge twist.
