When I was a little girl, I was always fascinated with witches shoes, after all, in the Wizard of Oz the witch was wearing the Ruby Red slippers so what was not to love? Even as a child I understood that witches, good or bad, were rather stylish, often wearing shiny black heels, with decidedly pointed toes, or in the occasional Mary Jane style. Even the fabulously bad Meg, of Meg and Mog fame, had some cute heels with shiny gold buckles. Witches shoes were most definitely cool.
This month Spartoo is celebrating the coming of Halloween with a selection of shoes that will shock, delight and spook in equal measures. First there are the designs from Irregular choice which feature the witches familiar, the black cat, in a range of quirky shoes that inspire total admiration and love due to the originality of the design.
Iron Fist have moved away from the quirky with their perfect Halloween heels. Taking another staple of the spooky season, the skull, and then embellishing it onto some very high killer heels, they have created the Halloween shoe that is perfect to add to a simple outfit of jeans and a white tee.
If skulls aren’t your thing, but Taylor Lautner is, you could always pay tribute in the amazing werewolf shoe, the ‘Wolfbeater’, complete with a werewolf eye and lashings of red blood!
Of course, not all witches went for glamour, some were just too cool for school. And if you are from the generation who revere ‘The Craft’ as the ultimate Halloween film, then Spartoo have the perfect boots for you. Revert to classic high leg Doc Martens in black patent for style, comfort and the maximum in hard-wearing footwear, or a traditional Victorian style lace up from Tuk.
