Madonna, aka The Queen of Pop, has been in the biz for quite awhile, yet it’s still an amazing sight to watch her dance, jump, and perform stunts onstage in those gravity-defying heels. Now Madonna is putting her most fashionable fans up to the challenge of rocking her own signature footwear line – Truth or Dare by Madonna – now available at Macy’s, Nordstrom, and soon on Zappos.com. I’m sure I’ll stay far away from any tight ropes, light-up stairs, and escalators while wearing these bad boys, but her collection of stacked platform heels, booties, and riding boots has definitely piqued the curiosity of my inner wannabe popstar. Ranging in price from $89 to $349 (the boots are mainly responsible for those loftier price tags!), this fall-friendly footwear line isn’t for the faint of heart. Spikes embellish pointy-toed pumps, while corset-inspired lacing decorates some seriously vampy over-the-knee boots. Softer, sophisticated details like quilted leather and two-toned textiles keep the collection well-rounded, but overall, these shoes are for the girl who loves to shine… and has no problem walking in sky-high heels!
