5 Fun Facts about Steve Madden

I'd be lying if I said I didn't love shoes. It's my belief that every woman, whatever her style, can appreciate a good pair of shoes. 
If, like me, you are a shoe addict that wholly believes in the "beautiful shoes take you to beautiful places" philosophy, 
then you'll know that there's no such thing as too many pairs of shoes. 

One of my favourite shoe labels is Steve Madden. The American shoe designer's eponymous label offers the cutest, 
varied collection of footwear, ranging from classy flats to killer heels, handsome brogues to chic ankle booties.
