With their new jewelry collection just hitting stores now, co-designers already have their sights set on another venture: shoes! Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have joined forces with Steve Madden Ltd. to create a line of footwear to add to their successful sportswear collection Elizabeth and James. “We are excited to partner with Steve Madden to create the new Elizabeth and James footwear line,” Mary-Kate says in a released statement. “With their proven experience in all aspects of design, production and distribution, we intend to take the contemporary shoe market to a new level.” Mary-Kate and Ashley will drive the creative direction of the Elizabeth and James shoe collection towards the sophisticated and chic woman they already cater to. “Mary-Kate and I found Steve Madden to truly understand our design philosophy, and how we want this brand to grow over the coming years,” Ashley told the press. “They have the resources and talent to help execute our vision for the Elizabeth and James brand.” The line is scheduled to hit high-end specialty retailers in mid-2009 and we cannot wait! Mary-Kate and Ashley have always had outrageous taste in shoes, from sky-high gladiator sandals to trendy peep-toe booties, so we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us. Pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE to hear what Mary-Kate and Ashley have to say about their jewelry collection.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s new endeavors sound like fun.

I dont know if they will be my style or not.. most of the things they wear I wouldnt be caught dead it.. but i know from shopping that the little girls clothing they make is really cute. I want to see the shoes!! I wish they would start acting again.. but i dont see that happening..

I wish MaryKate and Ashley wouldn’t smile like ducks. They are so pretty but when they try and do that pouty lip thing, it doesn’t work for them at all! But I do like them both! They are pretty girls!

Ryan on

the poor unfortunate looking little things. All that money can’t buy “pretty”. :)

They are creepy little girls.

They have awful style in my opinion.

I never got into them.

I grew up with these girls and they are so cute, but they are clueless about fashion. I dont care how rich they are, they dress as if they are not and OMG can somebody any body give them a style make over ASAP!!!! I dont know about anybody else but they seem unhappy to me. I wonder if stardom has ruined these beautiful girls.

THE OLSENS ALWAYS COME ON TOP. GIRLS FOLLOW WHAT THEY SAY AND DO. SO SHOES IS A GOOD WAY TO FOLLOW IN THEIR FOOT STEPS

hey mary-kate and ashley i have been a fan 4 years ever since i was a lil girl now im 18 years old anyways keep up with the good work and enjoy life i wish that one day i could be in one of ur movies or something bye

RANDY on

THEY SHOULD DO WHAT THEY DO BEST, AND ITS NOT FASHION. THE HOMELESS HAVE A BETTER IDEA ON THAT. NEITHER OF THESE GIRLS HAVE A CLUE ABOUT WHAT IS CUTE. SOMEWHERE EVERYTHING JUST WENT WRONG WITH THESE TWO. THESE TWO WERE SO BEAUTIFUL AND SWEET GROWING UP, AND ONE DAY THEY ARE NOT. SMOKING, DRINKING, AND ALL THE WHAT ELSE. I FEEL SORRY FOR THEIR KIDS THEY WILL HAVE SOME DAY. THEY WILL HAVE TO LISTEN TO ALL THE NASTY STORIES OF THEIR MOMS. ESPECIALLY MARY KATE’S CRAZY LIFE. FASHION NO. THEY NEED A WAKE UP CALL.

Randy,
Go kick rocks. Leave the girls alone.. You are such a HATER!!!

samantha on

Steve madden is the worst company ever they treat their employees like slaves and all their shoes are cheap knock offs…just wanted the truth to be heard about this horrible company :)

Tatyana, the cast, production team and crew are doing an exenllect job. Is there really a necessity for change in order to remain progressive in the industry? Well, if you must if the budget permits, Garrett Morris and or Tyrone Burton may be available for a few episodes. I think they would be a nice, balanced addition to the sitcom. If they are not feasible, might you consider myself? I’m only serious! (((Smiles!!!)))Thank you for the opportunity,Rich
