The Steve Madden outlet that popped up on the Ludlow and Rivington Streets is closing down. According to a sign seen at the store, everything must go, which means that the man's already inexpensive shoes are even cheaper ($5!). Are they clearing out stock so they can use the space as a genuine Madden outpost, or is the footwear designer abandoning the LES for good? We can only hope it is the latter, though it is probably the former.
