These Ain’t Red Bottoms: Cardi B’s Putting Her Foot in a New Collab With Steve Madden

Our favorite regular, degular, shmegular reality/rapping phenom keeps making “money moves.” This week, Cardi B debuted a curated selection from fast-fashion fave Steve Madden, a partnership that makes her signature style accessible to the masses who can only dream about owning a pair of “red bottoms.”

And while famed shoe designer Christian Louboutin may be behind the curve on the woman who shouted out his “bloody shoes” in her now Grammy-nominated single, “Bodak Yellow,” hopefully the rest of the fashion world is taking note. Echoing funny girl Leslie Jones, Cardi B tells Teen Vogue that designers have frequently declined to dress her, despite her tremendous success. (Notably, fashion wunderkind and Project Runway winner Christian Siriano stepped up to dress both, beautifully.)


But for those looking for shoes perfect for dancing to “Bodak Yellow” this holiday season, Cardi’s picks—and tips—are available now, ranging from $89.95 to $229.95.

Hit the store—you can get ’em both. You don’t have to choose.
