Grab a pen, pull up a chair, and listen up—famed shoe designer Steve Madden shared with us his absolute must-have styles for ladies and gents this season, and his list is on point. Whether you’re a party-hopping trend-setter or a sticks-to-the-basics kinda person, here are the Steve Madden shoes he’s making mandatory for your closet in 2015, and why.
The Peep-Toe Bootie
Sounds like these black booties might just be perfect for that little event coming up soon—New Year’s Eve, anyone?
Steve Madden Naydean Bootie $59.95 (Compare at $100!)
The Fringed Bootie
Couldn’t agree more, Steve. The suede booties would look amazing now with skinny jeans and a cozy sweater (and later in the season with a swingy floral dress).
Steve Madden Ranco Western Bootie $99.95 (Compare at $130!)
The Party-Down Oxford
Make an entrance at your next invite-only event in a spiffy pair of suede oxford shoes. They pair well with a suit, but will look just as smart with dark jeans and jacket for a more casual affair. (Plus, it comes in 5 colors!)
Steve Madden Elvin Oxford $79.95 (Compare at $120!)
The Classic Wingtip
Pair a cool jet-black tone with awesome wingtip detailing, and you’ve got the Dakota. Sounds like the perfect dress shoe to us!
Steve Madden Dakota Wingtip Oxford $69.95 (Compare at $100!)
