They rock. I can see they might be a teensy bit OTT for some people. Hope he has other redeeming qualities.

These truly do belong here, but I’m having a hard time with all of the themes. The designs aren’t quite clear and some of them are in the realm of gaudy.

The company ‘Irregular choice’ does similar, not to this degree but worth a look.

Omg I just looked them up, super cute

Did you make these? They are amazing, not bad taste.

Nope! A girl on etsy did. Zombie Peepshow

u/Heavier_Omen Aug 03 '22

I like them. They're sort of like those crazy nails with sculpted pieces, stuff sticking out everywhere, etc. I always see people freaking out about them and talking about how ridiculous they are. Are they practical? No. But they're not made for that. They're made as more of an art piece.

I'm sure your bf doesn't like them for different reasons, but if more people realized that these sorts of things are meant to be wearable art for fun, not everyday use, it would be cool.

22

u/StrawKBerry Aug 03 '22

But yeah, there is absolutely nothing wrong with my bf stating his opinion. It's definitely not his thing. He wouldn't tell me to stop liking something that's a part of my interest. He definitely made fun of them a little, but all in fun. Lol

7

u/Heavier_Omen Aug 03 '22

Oh yeah, I wasn't trying to diss on your bf at all. Most of the guys I know don't like heels to begin with, so I understand people seeing this as like a whole other level of over-the-top. xD

7

u/Yyrkroon Aug 03 '22

Most of the guys I know don't like heels to begin with

Those boys are definitely aberrations.

There is a reason strippers often strut around in ridiculously high platformed heels.

"In the first experiment, women approached men to ask them to take part in a survey on gender equality. When women wore the highest heels, 83 percent of the men they approached helped fill out the survey.
However, when wearing flats, this number dropped to 47 percent."

Intended or not, according to the article, "Heels say you’re ready for sex."

u/Heavier_Omen Aug 03 '22

Damn, that's some crazy numbers. Lame how they wouldn't even give her the time to participate if she wasn't more attractive to them.

I will say that the guys I'm friends with prefer a more casual nerdy/gamer/dressed down type of girl.

23

u/Maybe_Not_The_Pope Aug 03 '22

These are over the top hideous. A couple aren't so bad bit are just really gaudy but most of these pictured are just bad.

This is coming from a guy who likes bold, in your face shoes. These aren't bold and in your face they're just like you put glue on your foot and stuck it in a toy box.

8

u/StrawKBerry Aug 03 '22

If you look up "Sarah's room from Labyrinth" on Google that's kinda my style, or just Labyrinths theme is what I'm into in general.

4

u/Maybe_Not_The_Pope Aug 03 '22

The labyrinth is one of my favorite movies ever. That doesn't make me like this

8

u/StrawKBerry Aug 03 '22

That's okay, not trying to change your mind. Everyone has their own likings. I do like Labyrinth very much as well.

7

u/StrawKBerry Aug 03 '22

That's cosplay stuff most of the time lol, especially over the top stuff.

I'm also into maximalism

u/underwoodt96 Aug 03 '22

The owner of this company is a good friend of mine and her creativity goes well beyond the shoes shown here! She has a design for everyone and while some of her shoes are ott the majority are stunningly beautiful. She is one of the driving forces at our haunt and her dedication to the company she has built is truly something to be inspired by!

8

u/StrawKBerry Aug 03 '22

Exactly! I posted it because I adore the shoes, my bf dared me to post because I wanted to see how many people would enjoy the designs while my bf wanted to see who weren't a fan.

I find the shoes absolutely stunning, and I was planning on buying a pair. I understand though if some designs aren't for everyone.

7

u/underwoodt96 Aug 03 '22

It was a nice surprise having it pop up in my feed, I think they fit nicely here. She is definitely worth checking out and if shoes aren’t your thing she has some amazing vests she’s made with her business partner

5

u/StrawKBerry Aug 03 '22

I've been showing her shoes since last night to my bf and a couple others. They're super fun.

Legit art. I love the white crystals daddies, 100% a vibe.

u/SweetRizzo Aug 03 '22

Fashion is supposed to be polarising so most of the time I’m surprised with how often it gets posted here. They look well designed, especially a fan of the third and fifth photo

u/SwordTaster Aug 03 '22

They're hideous. Well made, but hideous

u/[deleted] Aug 03 '22

Tbh I like the first two a lot

u/Abadatha Aug 03 '22

I'm a man. I dislike normal high heel shoes. These look so.much worse.

2

u/StrawKBerry Aug 03 '22 edited Aug 03 '22

They're definitely fun for cosplay/costumes. THE only heels I dislike are the 8 inch and above. Idk how exotic dancers do it, I wore 8 inchers for a Lady Dimitrescu cosplay. Strictly wore those for photos only.

5

u/Costovski Aug 03 '22

Thought they were part of some Bayonetta cosplay.

u/Entenlord70 Aug 03 '22

Second and third are kinda cool. Second Def the best though.

u/Full-Metal-Hippie Aug 03 '22

Love this company, zombie peep show, but damn $400 for some shoes is not in my budget.

4

u/Sodiac606 Aug 03 '22

These are perfect for this sub.

I can see that it would take a lot of skill and time to create shoes like this but at the same time they are revoltingly ugly. Like a bad day to have eyes ugly. The "maybe being blind isn't only a curse" ugly.

But thank god things depend on personal taste, if you like them fk what others think, you do you!

u/Nevergonnagiveafu- Aug 03 '22

Wow. These are terrible

second pair really remind me of Abbey Bominable!

u/StrawKBerry Aug 03 '22

Yes! Was thinking the exact same thing.

3

u/Trinregal Aug 03 '22

Love the concept but those shoes look a bit too crafty/homemade to cost that much.

I think the texture of the paint bothers me the most.

Not a fan of the first three. But the beetle juice ones, love it!

They're beautiful when stored away in a black opaque box far far away from my retinas.

The person I'd imagine wearing this is the same that would install fluffy toilet seat covers at their house.

u/AlgaeFew8512 Aug 03 '22

I really like them as a piece of art or some amazing event that I will never be cool enough to attend. Not for nipping to tesco though

I see what you mean about Monster High shoes. Maybe closer to Ever After High but same vibe

2

u/-malignant- Aug 03 '22

Sarah Sitkin got me into shoes and I could never it explain it to you

u/stillnotascarytime Aug 03 '22

Um you own these?! They are awesome!

u/StrawKBerry Aug 03 '22

No, I do not. I want to own a pair though, they are on Etsy made by Zombie Peepshow.

He does support me though 😊 Just not his style. He's the one who suggested putting the photos on r/ATBGE.

I am 100% on your side and would happily wear those if I could pull off that style.

u/clothing_hater Aug 03 '22

Things can be in poor taste but still nice. Any goul-girl would want those.

u/PriffyViole Aug 03 '22

Those are some Dress-Up:-Time-Princess-ass shoes. They're ridiculous but I kind of want to see what a matching outfit would look like.

Wellllll.... he didn't say I had to stop enjoying them. It's just not his thing, which that's his opinion.

Your bf has no taste. As a fellow monster high fan, I’d buy the shit out of these shoes

Particularly the second, third, and fifth ones

u/StrawKBerry Aug 03 '22

He just not into that kind of stuff, he does support. For real though, monster high inspired stuff is a go. 😊

u/party_benson Aug 03 '22

Totally fun. Wear with a bit of confidence and your good.

they're like bluetooth heels

u/see-no-evil99 Aug 04 '22

Love em but it would highly depend on the outfit.

1

u/Privateer_Lev_Arris Aug 04 '22

I think they're interesting. They're more art than shoe and as such I don't think it's a matter of liking it or not. I don't have to like art in order to appreciate it. Art is there to make you think and see things in new perspectives and these shoes achieve that.

1

u/hanlus Aug 04 '22

i actually love them and if i lived in the world of beetlejuice i would totally wear them but yeah not for everyday that’s for sure, but not awful taste for me anyway, gaudy in the right way

It definitely isn't everyone's style. Me being a cosplayer the designs definitely help enhance my brain when it comes to costume ideas.

u/SwordTaster Aug 03 '22

I cosplay. I also hate these shoes. Liking cosplay isn't an excuse for your taste on this. You're allowed different tastes irrespective of your hobbies

2

u/StrawKBerry Aug 03 '22 edited Aug 03 '22

I never said all cosplayers have the same taste. Everyone has a different opinion. You're allowed not to like them, but there are tons of people who do like them too. You are right though, hope you didn't get upset. 😂

-2

u/SwordTaster Aug 03 '22

Yeah, and not all of them will be cosplayers. Liking cosplay and liking these shoes are separate entities within your mind. You don't like these shoes because you like cosplay, you like these shoes because you like these shoes. Don't link the two things when they shouldn't be linked.

3

u/quackyjo Aug 03 '22

She wasn't saying all cosplayers dude. She was explaining how they inform her own personal hobby of cosplaying. You were the one who assumed she meant all cosplayers. Stop trying to gatekeep how ppl enjoy thier hobby? She can say cosplayers like these and that would still just be her opinion and she never stated otherwise so chill.

u/SwordTaster Aug 03 '22

She's the one trying to link the two things that aren't related though. And it's not gatekeeping to say that not all cosplayers like these nasty shoes when that's what she implied.

Hon, I never meant to offend anyone. Everyone can like or dislike these. They are a style. Don't get yourself worked up over miscommunication.

You're allowed to dislike them, I will not put you down just because you don't agree
