Steve Madden is the Moment

This spring, all eyes have been on Steve Madden. The legendary shoe brand has undergone a major re-branding and has rightfully earned VALLEY’s stamp of approval. By the time you get through this article, you may want to buy everything off the site.

Warm weather is approaching, which means we must trade in our black booties for bold, bright colored shoes of all kinds. If you’re looking to buy up-to-trend pieces for the summer without entirely breaking your bank account, Steve Madden is the brand for you.

The brand’s latest designs are looking a lot more high fashion than ever before. For a relatively affordable shoe line, Steve Madden’s new heels stand out among the rest.

90s Nostalgia

The Fall 2021 Steve Maddenverse campaign set up the revival of the shoe brand’s reign over the fashion world in 2022. The campaign brought back 1990s nostalgia with its embrace of the brand’s iconic big head advertisements that made Steve Madden a household name.

Last fall’s campaign featured some of today’s biggest young Hollywood stars and influencers, such as Sydney Sweeney, Normani and Nessa Barrett to name a few.

The Charlize Satin Heels

One piece in particular, Steve Madden’s Charlize chunky platform satin heels, have been all the rage on TikTok.

The 5-inch Charlize heels have a vegan leather lining, are currently available in all sizes from a women’s 5 to 11, and are only $139.95. Run, don’t walk to Steve Madden’s website to secure them before they’re gone!

Pop culture and fashion TikToker @JasmineinNYC shared her excitement on receiving her order of the Charlize shoes. She praises the shoe’s comfortability and beams about feeling like a Bratz doll. One user commented that the Charlize shoes even looked identical to something Versace had recently put out.

It’s a major bonus that the Charlize heels come in a variety of colors, so you have the option to go for the classical black heel or add a pop of color with blue or hot pink. Accessorizing black outfits with hot pink or sky blue and color blocking with bright, bold colors have been two huge trends this season.

Chunky Platforms For Days

It’s obvious that Steve Madden has been heavily embracing the platform heels trend this season, and the Charlize heels aren’t the only shoes on the site right now that are to die for.

The website has a wide range of platform shoes for the summer that go beyond fancy heels — Steve Madden’s mules, slides and sandals have been making their way through social media as well.

Steve Madden brought back its beloved 90s platform flip flops and slides with an updated twist to fit into the bold color trend, which are perfect for any summer outing.

Euphoria‘s Chloe Cherry, who is fresh off the New York Fashion Week runway, has even embraced Steve Madden’s Trixie chunky platform leather mules.
