Steve Madden is one of the best known and most popular shoe designers from America, designing shoes for his company for the past twenty years.
He believes that the female fashionista should be given a unique way to express their individuality through style. This founding concept has resulted in a huge following of loyal customers, and now Steve Madden's shoes, sandals, pumps and heels are at the forefront of the footwear industry.
Steve Madden founded his shoe empire In 1990, with just $1,100 in his bank account. A year later, he redesigned platform heeled shoes and his new design, a chunky heel inspired by rock stars from the 1970s, became amazingly successful. Since that time, Steve Madden's shoes have been continually evolving into some of the most popular shoes around today.
Steve said, "What inspires me is what I see people wearing on the streets of the world from New York to London and beyond. I get my ideas and inspiration from pounding the pavement all over the world. Today, fashion is dictated by individual style. To me, the fashion of the future is anything that a young guy or girl feels good wearing as long as it's put together in the right way."
Celebrities who enjoy wearing Steve Madden shoes include Leona Lewis, Marie Osmond, Mena Suvari, Jennifer Hudson, Kim Kardashian, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Kirsten Dunst, Natasha Bedingfield, Alicia Keys and Rhianna (and probably loads more too but you get the idea...)
