3 Key Fall Trends from Steve Madden

When it comes to being on the pulse of what’s trending in the world of fashion, the designers at Steve Madden certainly do their homework!

Check out the top three trends making a big impression this fall season:

Combat boots: These tough yet stylish boots pair perfectly with skinny jeans—but we love the juxtaposition when they’re paired with a feminine ensemble, like a pretty floral dress or something lacy!

Studding: Studs were everywhere on the spring and fall runways, and we love how they add a little (or a big) dose of edge to an everyday wardrobe.

Funky, bold sneakers: These definitely aren’t made for the gym! These glamed-up versions of our weekend favorites are a great combo of comfort and of-the-moment style. We love them paired with leggings, skinny jeans and oversized sweaters!

Lakai x Spike Jonze

Lakai Pico

Renowned film, commercial, TV and music video director Spike Jonze has collaborated with Lakai yet again to design an aesthetically clean and sleek rendition of their classic Pico skate shoe. Its uncomplicated façade and durable vulcanized construction make the Lakai Pico the sneaker to proudly show off your vast style and skate prowess.

This Spike Jonze exclusive colorway is truly easy to pull off with its off- white suede body and perfectly-executed purple trim.  This could very well be the freshest thing out there since the awesome Lakai Fully Flared video, which Spike himself helped direct (see below).

Canvas Sneaker Cleaning

Canvas sneakers are lightweight, comfortable and versatile, but they do require a little extra care when it comes to cleaning.  If you have a passion for white canvas you already know that one false step in the mud leaves them looking like your little brother wore them to a swamp. But don't let that stop you from wearing the sneakers you love. Cleaning canvas sneakers is relatively quick and easy unless you ignore them for weeks and let the stains set in.

Step 1
Allow soiled sneakers to dry and brush away loose dirt with a soft brush. Check that the soles are clear of dirt or mud. Tapping them together over the trash can generally clears any dirt and mud from treads.

Step 2
Remove the shoelaces. Place the laces in a bowl of warm water with a little laundry detergent and let them soak while you clean the sneakers.

Step 3
Pour warm water in a small basin and add few drops of laundry detergent or ordinary dish detergent. Dip an old toothbrush into the soapy water and scrub the outside of the sneakers to remove dirt and stains. An old electric toothbrush works well as the circular motion of the brush lifts and removes dirt with little effort from you.

Step 4
Rinse and repeat until the canvas is clean and free of stains. Give them a final rinse with clear water to remove any soap residue. Improper rinsing results in ugly stains on the shoes when they dry. Avoid getting water in the sneaker.

Step 5
Place crumpled newspaper or wadded paper towels in the sneaker to hold its form and place in a well-ventilated area to dry.

Step 6
Scrub shoelaces vigorously to remove dirt or stains, rinse with clear water and hang over a line to dry.

ingredients
Laundry detergent or dish detergent
Scrub brush or old toothbrush
Basin
Newspapers or paper towels

tips
Canvas sneakers can be washed it the washing machine, but this may weaken fibers or loosen bonds and shorten the life of your sneaker.

warnings
Do not use bleach on canvas as it may turn the canvas yellow.

Maternity Tips: Pampering Pregnant Feet

When it comes to daily living during pregnancy, feet are usually one of the first things to cause discomfort. It only makes sense, after all; pregnancy can cause your feet to swell, and the extra weight of pregnancy takes an increasing toll on them as your bundle of joy grows. So, what can you do to ease the burden your pregnant feet must bear? After two pregnancies, here are a few great tips and tricks for treating your feet right while pregnant.

The best way to start is wearing great shoes. By great shoes, I don’t mean stylish, high-heeled or even necessarily expensive. I mean shoes your feet will love – shoes that are cozy or offer great support, especially if you’re on your feet a lot. For cold weather, pamper your feet with real, slip-on boots . Sometimes, work attire demands either dress shoes or sneakers . For maternity-smart dress shoes, check out dress shoes specifically designed with comfort and support in mind. If you need sneakers for work or working out, look for comfort and support first and foremost. And, whenever, buying shoes during pregnancy, always try them on your newly pregnant feet. Shoes that are your usual size may feel uncomfortably tight during (and even after) pregnancy.

There are several other ways to keep your feet comfortable during pregnancy. When you don’t need to be on your feet, try to keep them elevated as much as possible. This reduces swelling and gives your feet a much needed rest. Also, continue mild to moderate exercise throughout your pregnancy (I was in the gym on my due date. I wasn’t worried about being fat – it just relaxed me!). Exercise during pregnancy will make your recovery and weight loss easier after giving birth. Also, if you can afford a regular pedicure during pregnancy, get one – especially during your last trimester. If you follow these easy steps to healthier feet during pregnancy, you can save yourself unnecessary pain and discomfort. And who doesn’t want that?
