Steven Madden recently expanded into the sneaker market and just dropped the two colorways of the “inspired” Malone sneakers. The high-top silhouette with dual-tone panels and exposed stitching is almost identical to Nike’s famed Air Jordan 1. The “Mocha Brown” colorway very strongly references the “Cactus Jack” AJ1, with a black star replacing Scott’s reverse swoosh, while the “Chicago” colorway is very similar to Virgil Abloh’s “The Ten” Jordan 1, especially in its unstitched panels on the ankle collar.
Check out Madden’s “inspired” sneakers in the gallery above. The shoes are currently available on Steve Madden’s site for $140.
