Stars Love A Bargain Too: Hayden Panettiere's Steve Madden Spree

07/11/2007 at 04:45 PM ET


Hayden Panettiere doesn’t need to don super-luxe high heels like other young Hollywood starlets. With boyfriend Stephen Colletti in tow, the Heroes starlet hit up the Beverly Center’s Steve Madden store. Hayden is a big Steve Madden fan and scooped up three pairs of his affordable foot wear! An eyewitness says she immediately went for the gold Mixup pumps, $80, which she wore out later that week to the Nickelodeon studios in L.A. Among her other purchases were a pair of red Talli flats, $40 (on sale from $70!) and the Latch buckle boot for $150. Who doesn’t love affordable star style?

The “Talli” flats are Tory Burch knock-offs

Since when is $150 for a pair of shoes affordable?

ccb on

The shoes are cute…And how nice to see a young woman who looks healthy instead of skin over bones. OHhh to be young and beautiful…

i love her she’s so pretty!

Jessica on

I love haydens shoes but i love her dress even more!!

Leigh on

Who cares is the shoes are “Tory Burch knock-offs.” Can you afford the real things? Most of us can’t. Don’t hate on the girl just because she shops like the rest of America and buys affordable pieces.

I’m a little confused about that phrase “affordable”- Steve Maddens are friggin expensive! But anything from Steve Madden makes me melt into a blubbering pile of goo, so…sigh…

Mary on

You’ve got to be kidding me, Steve Maddens are NOT expensive . . . unless you’re a poor college student or a teenage girl who depends on an allowance.

Keep in mind that there are people who read this blog who make actual salaries, and can afford $150 shoes on a regular basis. Something that might be expensive for you will be affordable for a lot of other people (such as myself).

So I was going to order some of the shoes from the steve madden website, but they don’t allow returns or exchanges. Does anybody know if they fit true to size? Are Steve Madden shoes comfortable and well made?? Thanks for any advice you guys can give me!

Ooh, I think “Mary” has a little chip on her shoulder. Well I hate to tell you “Mary”, that just because you might be rich, doesn’t mean we all our. How about instead of spending that money on shoes, you give a little to me since you seem to have so much of it. I could definitley use it, and wouldn’t waste it on $150 pair of shoes.

Well isn’t that just grrrrreat for you, Mary! Does money mean everything to you? Sure seems like it, since you don’t seem to be so kind. Oh and btw: I am a 13 year old girl. But that doesn’t mean that I depend on my allowance! I actually have a card business where I hand-make the cards and sell them to people who order them. I’ve make quite a bit of money, but I don’t waste it all on shoes.
Anyway, I don’t like the way her dress is so matchy-matchy with the hat. I think that a hat with some sort of pattern that had the shade of the dress in it would be nicer… I do like Hayden’s shoes though.

Mary Mary…. Meow.

Mary Mary, why you buggin?

Tina on

Gold pumps in the daytime? Yeeeesh! Dress is cute though. And I like that she’s not rail thin.

Mary on

The reason why I am supposedly “buggin”? Because I am SO tired of people complaining about how expensive’s “affordable” item recommendations are.

Complaining just makes you sound silly, because it’s obvious that you didn’t THINK about how something that is expensive for some might not be for others. In this case, called Steve Madden shoes affordable because they cost a LOT less than your typical celebrity wear (shoes that cost $500+). Did any of you actually consider this? Affordability is a relative term. Obviously, a single mother on welfare is probably not going to be able to buy a pair, but the average employed American woman would be able to. And for your average celebrity, the shoes would be mere pennies.

Further more, Steve Madden shoes don’t normally cost $150 (unless they’re boots, which makes sense). In fact, I just saw a pair on sale at Nordstrom for less than $40.

I am not rich. I have a steady job and I take care of my finances well. I also happen spend a lot of money on shoes that fit well and look good because they go on my feet, feet that I have walk on everyday. I don’t consider this wasting money, because I value shoes more than other stuff in my wardrobe, like jeans (all of my pairs are less than $25).

So before you complain again, you need to consider that your spending habits might not necessarily represent those of the average person reading this blog.

p.s. Kristen, I wish I could answer your question, but I’ve only had experience with only one pair of Steve Maddens that were unfortunately not well-made and really chafed my feet :(

Kristen on

Thanks for the tip Mary!

James on

Mary, I will agree with that. I mean, someone jumped all over me for saying Jennifer Garner was “laid back” on yesterday’s post (red purse) I am sure she didn’t pay for that purse and if she did it got into a huge debate on whether she donates all her salary to charity. Just simply saying she leaves the house in jeans, tennis shoes, ponytails and little make-up. I like that about her.

Jamie on

Mary– Wow! I think people get what “affordable” means. In the future, I think you should really watch what you write.

Kristen– I have 3 pairs of Steve Maddens. They are all ah-dorable, and they fit comfortably, for high heels. They are also sturdy, well-made shoes worht buying. However, you should watch out for the sizes, because it depends on the shoe.

As for Hayden, she’s beautiful, young, successful, a healthy weight, a good sense in shoes whether they are affordable or not, and has an ah-mazing outfit on in the picture!

randa on

i love hayden! she looks great in this outfit…. she hardly eva looks bad… she knows what a good outfit is!! The shoes are my fav! =)

Anna on

I like it! She is a nice healthy looking girl with a cute, yet affordable outfit.

Amandaa on

I really love that outfit. She looks sooo amazing. Plus I love Steve Madden. Everytime I pick out a shoe that is Steve Madden I always have to buy it because there just soo great!

haley on

love the hat!

YepIt'sMe on

omgah where did she get that hat? i want one!

Mary on

Jamie, unfortunately, I don’t think people quite understand, which is why every time touts something as “affordable”, a bunch of people start complaining about how they can’t afford it. Why? Because they are only thinking about themselves.

T-Molly on

Hayden looks fantastic. The hat is a little much, but altogether she looks great!
