Do you remember the days when the Steve Madden stretchy sandals reigned supreme? They were quite the must-have, and as '90s redux grows ever larger, they're starting to come back in a big way — believe it or not, there are some pretty great 2016 shoes for fans of the iconic Steve Madden stretchy slides.
When you think about it, it's about time that the iconic shoe style came back into vogue in a major way — after all, there were so many reasons to love them, from their convenience and comfort, to their simplicity and bold appeal. In a nutshell, they were fun, and they matched everything — and now in 2016, they'll make for the perfect accoutrement for your retro tattoo choker.
If you're ride or die for the classic '90s look, you can purchase almost exact copies of the style (thanks to Steve Madden for re-releasing the look earlier this year) or you can go for a more updated take on the look, be it the form of platforms, chunky heels, or flats — whichever suits you best! Either way, fans of the Steve Madden stretch shoe, look no further — here are 12 chic throwback styles to take you into 2016.
