I discovered Steve Madden shoes while working for a Summer in the US back in 2003 (gosh that was 9 years ago!). They answered every possible show related requirment – trend, good price and comfortable. The brand itself has been around for a very long time and to this day, is still one of the most popular with lot’s of stand alone stores popping up everywhere. One trend which they are doing really well right now, is the slippper, from animal print to studs. These shoes jazz up any casual outfit and I quite like them as an alternative to the ballet pumps we have all been living in. If you fancy something higher, their shoe boots, platform peep toes and sandals (check out the fuschia ones!) will take you through to next season! Steve Madden is stocked in the UK, and in House of Fraser in Ireland.
