Steve Madden is paying homage to select New York entrepreneurs who are changing the face of their respective industries with today’s launch of a “Self Made,” a men’s online marketing campaign. And Madden’s road to success serves as the premise for the campaign.

The entrepreneur sat down with five other like-minded men to discuss topics including business, failure, motivation, current events and family. While some asked for advice or guidance, others bonded over similar beginnings despite their diverse industries.

The participants each selected a Steve Madden shoe that best suited their personal style. All of their choices are currently available online.

Here are there individual stories.

Brian Mazza, president of Paige Hospitality Group, took $400 and turned it into a successfully hospitality group and menswear company.
