Steve Madden was established in 1990 by founder and designer Steve Madden. He started the company by carting around his designs in the trunk of his car, selling shoes at stores throughout New York. Soon, the business could afford to hire an employee and to have an office, and it was there that the brand really grew.

Designer Steve Madden was born and raised in New York, and this is where he got his inspiration for his edgy and street-ready shoe designs. He quickly grew a reputation for unique looks that fit the desires of fashion-forward individuals. Soon enough, the Steve Madden brand also grew a loyal following.

Today, the brand produces footwear and accessories for women, children, and men. The company has since become publicly traded, finding success with its line of quirky kicks. Its headquarters remain at Long Island City in New York, with many stores across the United States and many more across the world. 

One of the brand’s striking sneakers is the Steve Madden women Maximus sneakers. This sports-inspired shoe is made to stand out with its exaggerated rubber sole. It also has a cool layered upper with a zigzag design, which offers a fresh yet retro-inspired style. With all these features thrown in, this kick will keep the wearer looking fabulous while running around town.
