Off the Rack: Are All The Shoes at Target Right Now Steve Madden Dupes?

This fashion bloggers stalks Target for the best shoe picks.
The Merona 'Margo' pearl slide ($24.99) is a dupe for the Steve Madden 'Jole' sandal ($55.96 for black, $69.95 for nude).


Pearls, satin, velvet, brocade, and faux fur are just some of the enticing adornments you'll see on the shoes at Target, which boasts a shocking number of Steve Madden knockoffs at the moment. #werenotcomplaining



In fact, so many of the shoes are exact Steve Madden copies that I can't help but think that they're coming from the same company. The Steve Maddens are generally genuine leather while Target's budget options are synthetic materials.

Steve Madden already makes a kids shoe line for Target called Stevies.

Both brands are heavily influenced by Gucci right now, from the pearl embellishments to patchwork details on everything from shoes to backpacks.

Scroll down and you'll see what I mean. All these lookalikes can't be a coincidence, right? Either way, I'm not complaining! I'd happily take one of each, no exaggeration.

Have you noticed all the Steve Madden inspired footwear at Target lately? Which pairs are you loving?

I was eyeing the perforated boots from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale as well, but these Target ones are just as cute and much more affordable. Those laced up sock sneakers are really cute too! I might have to do a Target run real soon :-)

I might return my Converse Shoreline sneakers from the sale, too, and pick up some cute sneaks at Target instead. The Shoreline's don't feel very comfortable wearing them around the house! I got my regular size and they seem big, too. Anyways, gotta love these options!

I have my eyes on those blush quilted slip-ons. And they are an exact replica of the Steve Madden version. Why pay $40 extra if I don't have to for the same look? Goes to Target

Hi! I'm not sure if you're aware, but your new posts (in the last 15 days) aren't showing up on Bloglovin'!

Hi Kara, no, I was not aware of this. I'm looking into resolving the issue now. Thank you so much for the heads up!!

The problem with the RSS and Bloglovin' should be fixed. Please let me know if you experience any more problems. Thank you!

They ARE EXACTLY the same shoes from Steve Madden. Before I buy from Nordstrom I check Target.
