Steve Madden, one of the nation's top shoe designers, started his business with the mission of giving young women unique ways to express themselves through style. The results of his labors earned him millions of customers as well as accolades in the fashion industry. Today, many of his runway-ready looks can be found at Journeys. In 1990, with just $1,100 in the bank, Madden started creating his unique designs at his Queens factory. A year later, Madden introduced a redefined version of the platform shoe, which would become one of the most spectacular fashion success stories of the early 1990s. Inspired by the looks of his favorite 1970s rock icons, the chunky heel became Madden's signature. Today, the Steve Madden brand is about embracing the latest trends in fashion while still holding onto the creative independence that defined the brand decades ago. It's a spirit we share at Journeys, which is why we're proud to carry Steve Madden sandals, wedges, boots, casual shoes and more. Whether you shop for Steve Madden online or in a Journeys store, you're sure to find a great look that will turn heads!
