Steve Madden has joined with a R&B singer, Keyshia Cole, to release a special collection of Steve Madden shoes. The new line features seven heeled styles, ranging from pumps to booties to tall boots. Prints, colors and cut-out details are designed to reflect the collaboration between the footwear creator and the multi-platinum artist. Music has inspired Steve Madden's designs since he launched the brand in 1990 and remains one of the designer's muses. Keyshia Cole made her platinum debut in 2005 with The Way It Is and her five albums all appeared in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts. She also earned four Grammy nominations including for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and for Best Contemporary R&B album. The launch of the new shoe collection was accompanied by a personal appearance tour by Keyshia Cole.
