Here’s a look at the Spring 2010 collection from Steve Madden. The wedge profile continues to be a very strong shoe for this company for spring, making it onto shoes in multiple incarnations. We see it in denim, suede and espadrille. The espadrille itself is also very strong, as the roping that makes the style so distinctive, much like a vine is climbing up the shoe, winding around the heels and up to the straps, dominating nearly every part of a shoes construction at some point.
This season also appears to be very focused on the ankle. We see ankle decoration on many shoes ranging from sandals, heels, booties and boots. Whether it’s braiding, chain decoration, straps, buckles, or slouchy leather, the ankle is definitely having it’s day.
The strongest color for the season appears to be blue, being used across a number of the styles, although we do have many options. An oxford wingtip style is also being utilized on two different shoes, one of them being a version of an androgynous tap-style shoe (which also has a woven version).
Like usual, Steve Madden tends to cover most of the major mainsrteam trends for the season, that’s what’s made them such a powerhouse brand over the past 20 years. Spring 2010 shouldn’t be much different. These shoes will start hitting Steve Madden stores, and retailers starting in January and February of 2010. I’ve got preview pics for the higher end Steven by Steve Madden collection coming shortly, so stay tuned.
