All those memes that were going around Facebook in the past 10 years about “if you grew up in the 80s, then you experienced this!” – well, that’s what it was like for me looking through this store. The first shock for me being, 90s is now considered vintage?!?!? Ah!!!! And then the fact that almost every single piece in the store, I would have surely drooled over at the time. The statement pieces are incredible. It’s like a museum of cybergoth culture relics. Truly amazing. I want every item in there, including these incredible clogs – despite the fact it’s very likely difficult to find somewhere to wear ’em to! Rave? Too many pouncing feet. Beach? Why ruin them? Walking around the street? Mmm… Far too mundane. Well, good luck in your hunt to find a venue to wear ’em to!
Not sure what it is about these geek-prep shoes, but I like them. Would go well with loud green pants and an even louder checkered shirt. Yes, I just recommended plaid – but only the very loudest, most visually offensive plaid you can find. 🙂
Check out the listing and get yourself a pair!
The fairy tale shoes in Fairysteps Shoes’ Etsy store are so mischievously whimsical, I had to feature them. This particular pair is reserved for someone specific, but I’m sure you could have a custom pair made for yourself. Check out the listing.
Moovmint is the Etsy store of textile artist Sin. The splash of luminescent blue in the thumbnail for these boots is what drew me to the store. These boots bare free gin’ incredible. It must have been heartbreaking for the client they were made for when they didn’t quite fit right. Honestly, if Convers weren’t the most horribly uncomfortable shoes I’ve ever owned, I’d snatch these up in a second – despite the price tag and my not really needing them. Alas… These feet were absolutely not made for narrow, completely flat and non supportive tennis shoes. But you… You really should nab these. So I can stare longingly and jealously at your obviously normal feet.

Now, I gotta be honest. I can’t imagine ever wanting to wear these Zombie platform heels by Nixxi Rose. But they’re pretty freakin’ incredible, so I figured I’d post ’em anyway. Maybe for Hallowe’en? I know a lot of people are into the whole Zombie Chic thing…
So, I was clicking around Facebook, as you do, and kept seeing an ad for these shoes. Well, something about the colours screamed “BUY ME”, so I clicked over and discovered JustFab – a highly addictive, tailored-for-you shoe shopping site. Don’t worry if none of the styles they show you in the beginning actually match anything even remotely close to what you’d wear in real life, or have any interest in – once you’re through the quizzes, you can view all of the selection they have available. Which ensures that you don’t miss all the wicked, awesome, punk/rocker/over-the-top colourful styles they’ve got.
Also, what’s awesome about this place is, your first order is 50% off the already discounted price they display (at least, this was the case for me, yesterday). I’m now the excited new owner of a pair of these ROCK ON boots from Avril Lavigne’s new Abbey Dawn collection:
Edit April 17, 2012: Just an update – I received the shoes and have realised they are the cheap, made-in-China type of shoes. Thankfully the boots are comfortable and wide enough to fit my fat calves, and generally they look good. However, I also realised that signing up with this website – in any capacity – means you are signing up for a minimum monthly subscription of $39.95 USD (+ shipping). You may, of course, at any month, skip a month should you not like any of the shoes they’ve posted. If you happen to forget to a) order a pair of shoes, or b) skip the month by a certain date, you will still be charged that $39.95. However, considering the quality, I can’t imagine ever buying another pair on that site – especially not on a monthly basis. I, for one, appreciate high-quality, sturdy shoes that will not make my feet hurt – and that’s exactly the opposite of what made-in-China heels do to my feet (the majority of the type of shoe that site features). Anyway, without going on about how strange my feet are, I’ll leave it at that. Decide for yourself of course – they have plenty of adorable styles. But a word of caution should you have tastes like my own.
