Studded Boots

At my age, buying goth/punk shoes should be the last thing on my mind. I’ve gone through the whole goth phase (minus the makeup though) more than a decade ago. I sent our messenger to go to the post office yesterday morning to pick up a couple of packages and lo and behold my studded goth boots arrived in the mail. I bought these a few months ago and I totally forgot about them. I took them out for a spin when I went to the mall in the afternoon and I love them!

Bryanboy as a goth? OMGNOWAII! Don’t worry, it’s never going to happen. But then again, I’m not really the poster child of elegance, restraint and refinement; I’ll leave that to the people who desperately want to be photographed by The Sartorialist and would fight tooth and nail (and show some ankles because Scott LOVES them ankles) just to be on his pages. LOL. Just kidding.

It’s Carrie Bradshaw for the win!

My obsession with studs started with this picture.

OK, not exactly the same picture but I saw a different shot of her in the same outfit online. I thought for a second her shoes were spiked/studded too, like her belt. I guess not.

Which is more disturbing?

a) I’m secretly fantasizing about Carrie’s wardrobe even though I’m Team Samantha trapped in Team Charlotte? or

b) The movie isn’t even out yet and I’m already shopping the ‘trickle down effect’.

Fall 2007 was studded mania galore, especially with Burberry and all.

It doesn’t stop there! Studded shoes… for women, at least… are everywhere! Here’s a couple of Spring 2008 shoes…

Here’s something nice and oh so chica from Lanvin. I really love Lanvin shoes more than anyone else. For realz. Well, Lanvin and Pierre Hardy. Season after season they always pump out the best shoes in the world. If I had the money I’ll buy Lanvin shoes — both for men AND women — just to satisfy my fetish.

Gareth Pugh on the other hand sent spiked boots down the runway.
It’s not studded but it does fit the whole fetish/goth/punk/etc theme.

So there.

Women’s shoes are always more exciting than men’s eh?

As far as I’m concerned, I got myself a pair of studded boots that goth and punk kids seem to favor. Not only it’s cheap, it’s also the real deal! The one I got is made out of canvas.

I don’t like the tag on the back so I’m gonna cut that off.

Now all I need to look for now is a pair of shorts and a matching top with a hideously loud floral/print and bam!

Just kiddin.

I love you all!
