THESE are Steve Madden's Best-Selling Holiday Shoes: Thoughts?

Who knew rhinestones + leopard = retail gold? 

We swung by Steve Madden's latest preview this week, where we got a sneak peek at some of the brand's upcoming styles (hello, color-blocked oxfords and strappy neon heels) and grilled Steve Madden's PR team on this season's best sellers.

And—surprise!—the hit shoe of holiday 2012 is the $150, leopard print, bedazzled "Dyvinal," which has a 6.5 inch heel. Yowza. 

We have to hand it to everyone who bought a pair—you ladies are bold. And coordinated. Like, how in the name of Kim Kardashian do you walk in them?

We could see the Dyvinals with a black bandage dress. On New Year's Eve. In Vegas. But, for those of you with slightly simpler tastes—or if you're wearing a rhinestone leopard dress to your holiday cookie swap and don't want your shoes to clash—Steve Madden's two-strap, $80 "Realove" sandals have also been a big hit this season.
