The Art of Darkness

Sinister Soles

Tooth ShoesIt’s time for a bunch of shoe-related stuff that’s too disjointed for individual posts. Whee!

BoingBoing recently had a couple of posts featuring shoes decorated with false teeth: Apex Predator (first comment: “Wait til you see the tongues”) and Toothy Ladies Shoes. These could be DIY’d without too much trouble, and the false human teeth could be replaced with animal teeth used for taxidermy (on the women’s version at least; pointy teeth probably wouldn’t work so well on the soles of shoes).

Some retailers of interest include Hades Footwear (their site is unfortunately coy about wear to buy their products, although Steamtropolis carries a selection), Gentleman’s Emporium (both Men’s and Women’s styles, plus a whole subsection of Steampunk), Demonia, Iron Fist, and Sinister Soles (in particular I like these and these).

Also not exactly goth, but Julian Hakes’ Mojito shoes are awesomely weird. I can’t decide if they look comfortable or not.

    I’m definitely interested in at least trying on the Mojito, but I might have to buy myself these for my birthday/Steampunk month.

    I’m in the market for new boots, shocker, so if you see some of those let me know. I’ve been wearing my Doc Marten Phinas so much that Chevalier thinks they are actually my legs.
