Steve Madden has been producing great looking shoes since he started in 1990 by selling them out of the trunk of his car in New York City. Taking inspiration from his home town and his love for rock and roll, he continues to bring both men and women great looking shoes that are both affordable and durable.

The Foxton’s are all three: stylish, affordable, and durable. They have a washed canvas upper with contrasting stitching to give them a fun little touch and increase the overall look of them. They feature synthetic overlays to help improve the overall durability of them as well as increasing the support of the shoes altogether. Unfortunately, there are no color options that you can choose from, and that may deter some consumers, but for the most part, people are content with the choice they have available to them. All and all, they are a pretty decent pair of shoes that many customers adore.

Uppers

Uppers

The uppers of the Steve Madden Foxton's are made out of washed canvas materials with some synthetic overlays for added support and contrasting stitches to give them a more aesthetically pleasing look. They feature a soft canvas lining on the inside of them, giving them a great feel along your skin if you decide to forego socks for the day. You should have no problems with irritating chafing and blisters when heading out in these sneakers. They have a lace-up closure that works in unison with the overlays to give you a secure and locked in feel.
Midsole

Midsole

These shoes have a cushioned footbed that your feet can enjoy while residing inside of them. They are going to offer you a decent amount of padding underfoot to give you great comfort throughout the day. There is a shortage of information on the exact makeup of the midsole; however, customers do not seem to have many complaints on how they feel so it can be assumed that they provide adequate cushioning and support. If you decide to purchase a pair and think that you are going to need more padding then is present in them right out of the box, you can always opt to get an additional insole so you can get the right amount of comfort that you desire in your footwear.
Outsole

Outsole

The Foxton's have an outsole that is constructed out of man-made rubber to be durable and long lasting. You are not going to have to fear the soles wearing down on you too quickly while you are out pounding the pavement. The rubber itself can hold a decent grip, but when combined with the tread pattern on the bottom of the sole you will be able to rest assured knowing that you can have some pretty excellent traction while you are out and about. Of course, as they are more of a pair of casual shoes, you are not going to want to take them in the woods or run a marathon with them, but for your everyday wear, they should be able to hold their own and keep you upright.
Weight

Weight

The Steve Madden's are slightly on the heavy side when you compare them to some of the other similar products out there. That does not mean that they are overly burdensome though. They have a little higher weight than others, but they still feel great and will not hold you back throughout the day. They weigh in, on average, at 13 ounces for a size 11.5 medium. Although, this measurement is only for a single should and does not account for both of them. The general rule is to try to find something that is as lightweight as possible so they will not slow you down, but as these are not athletic shoes, a couple of extra ounces should not hurt much.
Support

Support

The Steve Madden Foxton's feature a canvas upper with a lace-up closure, but the part that sets them above most is that they have some synthetic overlays. These overlays combined with the lacing system ensures that you are going to get a snug and secure fit so you will not have to worry about walking right out of your shoes while you are out and about. They secure fit will ensure that your feet will not wobble around too much inside the foot chamber which can cause you to slip and injure yourself.
Comfort

Comfort

Wearing a pair of shoes all day long can sometimes prove to be uncomfortable if you are not wearing the right kind, thankfully for your feet, these are great at keeping you comfy. They have a cushioned footbed that has an adequate amount of padding underfoot to give you the comfort you need the day.

Additionally, they have a canvas lining inside the foot chamber that feels soft against your skin, so if you decide to skip the socks for the day, you should still have no problems with blisters or irritation from them rubbing against your foot. All and all, they appear to be relatively comfortable and feel great for all-day wear.
Durability

Durability

When shoe shopping, you generally want to try to find yourself a pair that is going to last you a while, so you do not have to worry about replacing them too soon and having to do the shopping all over again. If you are not getting good quality shoes, then you are going to be regularly replacing them, and no one really wants that. The good news is that the Steve Madden Foxton's are reasonably durable and will not wear down prematurely. The canvas uppers have synthetic overlays that help keep them secure, so you are not going to have to worry about them tearing or coming apart at the seams. The outsole is also going to increase the overall lifespan of the sneakers as they are made out of robust man-made rubber that will not wear down for a long time.
Style

Style

Customers like the look of these canvas shoes. The one downfall, however, is that there are no color options to choose from and if you want the sneakers then you must get them in grey. That does not seem to deter consumers, however, as they still love the way they look.

They have a washed canvas upper and some synthetic overlays for support. The shoes also feature contrast stitching to help give them a little pop. They are more of a casual shoe so they will not fit in an athletic setting and you probably cannot get away with wearing them into the office, but for running errands or heading to a barbeque, they are going to be perfect. You can match them with some jeans or a pair of shorts, and you will look your best wearing the Steve Madden's.
Fit

Fit

Purchasing a pair of shoes that fits you properly is the key to wearing something that will be comfortable and offer adequate support. You want to try to make sure that they fit you snuggly enough that you will not wobble around inside the foot chamber, but you also need to ensure that they are not too tight that they are pinching your toes and causing you pain or discomfort. The Steve Madden Foxton's run true to size so that is going to take a lot of the guessing out trying to figure out what you should order for the perfect fit. If you are not sure, you can always take a gander at a size chart online before placing your order.

The canvas sneakers are available in sizes 7-14, with half sizes only for sizes 7-11. Unfortunately, if you have wide feet, then they might not be the best choice for you as they are not available in any other width besides medium.
Value

Value

The Steve Madden Foxton shoes have an affordable price tag and can be considered a pretty good deal by many customers. As mentioned above, they are durable and have a long lifespan, so you are not going to have to worry about replacing them very often. Mix the high durability and the low price tag, and you get these fantastic shoes that are well worth the money you will spend on them.
Flexibility

Flexibility

When you are taking a step, you are going to want to have something on your feet that will move with the natural movements of the foot. You do not want to feel like you are being restricted in any way. The Steve Madden's are going to give you some flexibility to them. You might not get as much as you would from a more active type of footwear, but for something that you will be wearing around casually, they are sufficient. They will bend with your foot with each step you take, promoting a more natural gait.
Breathability

Breathability

The Foxton's can offer you a decent amount of breathability while you are wearing them. They are pretty well-ventilated, meaning that they will allow air to flow into the shoes and keep you cool easily. This is especially helpful when you are walking around on warmer days as it will not only help prevent you from overheating, but it can also help keep your feet nice and dry. The sweat from your feet can quickly evaporate and escape the foot chamber, saving you from walking around the rest of the day in soggy socks. Since you are staying dry, you also have a smaller chance of coming home with stinky feet at the end of the day.
