WICKER PARK — If you’ve been thinking about splurging on a pair of leather booties, act quickly.

Steve Madden will close its Wicker Park storefront at 1553 N. Milwaukee Ave. on Feb. 28, a clerk confirmed Wednesday.

The New York City-based women’s shoe company has called the storefront home for roughly a decade, the clerk added.

As a result, shoes have to move.

Boots and booties — some of which typically retail for well over $100 —are on sale for $19.99.

Heels, flats and other shoes are going for as low as $9.99. Clothing fixtures and displays are on sale, too.

The reason for the closure is not yet known. Steve Madden’s corporate office did not immediately return a call for comment.
