Madden Men’s Trace Slip-On Shoe

By on August 17, 2014

Madden Men's Trace Slip-On ShoeSometimes I just feel like slipping on a nice pair of shoes that require little to no effort.  When I am in a rush I don’t want to bend over to tie my shoelaces or make sure the tongue is in place.  The best part is that you can have a nice looking shoe for a reasonable price by Steve Madden.  I chose the men’s Trace slip-on because I like the Venetian style and the crisscross stitching on the side.  If you already have a nice pair of slip on shoes we recommend getting the Landisun Gold Black Paisleys tie to go with your outfit.

This is my second pair of Steve Madden shoes and the first one I purchased was  great, but could use some improvement in the comfort department.  I tried on this pair before ordering them online (20 bucks cheaper) so I could see how they looked before purchase.  These were much more comfortable than my last pair and I love the bicycle toe or square-toe look. One thing I noticed is that these slip-on have a little bit more shine to them than they do in the picture so be warned.  Let’s take a deeper look.

Features of the Steve Madden Men’s Trace Slip-On

Madden Men's Trace Slip-On ShoeNow these shoes are not for everyone and are more narrow than others.  If you have a wider foot then we recommend to either break them in or steer clear of these shoes.  These Steve Madden slip-on are made from a synthetic material and a leather upper which is great for easy clean up.  The footbed is cushioned which makes having these on for long periods of time a joy.  So far these shoes seem very durable and should hold up if you take good care of them.

You will find the Trace slip-on in three different colors which are black, grey, and brown.  It all comes down to preference here and all of them look stylish.  With a square toe shoe like this, the toe is longer than standard shoes and is part of the styling.  Here are the features of the Trace slip-on:

  • Madden Men's Trace Slip-On ShoeSynthetic
  • Manmade sole
  • Venetian slip-on with crisscross stitching details
  • Bicycle toe
  • Reinforced welt
  • Dual goring at tongue

If you know what you are looking for and love the style of the square toe shoe then I recommend this to you.  The crisscross stitching is a nice touch and the dual goring makes these easy to slip on and off while keeping the shoe on your foot.
