The Steve Madden Sample Sale was a total shitshow of a sale. The sale took place in Queens and was by far the most chaotic sample sale I have every been to. Though the discounts were good (only $10 for shoes and $20 for boots) the absolute madness made it not even worth the time. Shoes were all over the floors in piles and were damaged and missing its pair. To find a decent pair required more digging and pushing than it was even worth. Also, most of the shoes were sample sizes with only a few other sizes but it was almost impossible to figure out what size everything was. The space was huge but the sale was super crowded and I waited on line to purchase for over an hour.
The accessories were pretty good in that they had some cute bags for between $10-$20. They had a lot of Betsy Johnson being sold for only $10-$20. The bags were all in boxes thrown haphazardly around the space and in the piles with the shoes.
Overall, I gave this sale a 3/10. Good discounts but not worth the trip to Queens for utter chaos and disorganization.
