About the Book:
A college dropout who fell in love with shoes while working in a mom and pop shoe store in his Long Island home town, Steve Madden has taken his eponymous company from the fledgling startup he founded thirty years ago with a mere $1,100 to the global juggernaut we are all familiar with today. Madden’s mistakes over these years, from his battle with addiction to the financial shortcuts that landed him in prison, are as important to his story as his most iconic shoes. In this raw, intimate, and ultimately inspiring book, Madden holds nothing back as he shares what it took to get here and the lessons he’s learned along the way. From his unconventional hiring strategies to his slavish devotion to product, Madden offers a business perspective that is as unique as his styles. In The Cobbler, readers are treated to the wild ride though his rise, fall, and comeback. But they will also walk away uplifted by a man who has owned up to his mistakes and is determined to give back and use his hard-won platform to create positive change.
