Secret Identities: Friend of Mine ‘Claw Boots’

claw boots

From the front, a simple, unassuming suede boot.

But from the back…

Well, from the back it’s a different story altogether. Possibly an “end of the world” type story, in which hideous, clawed animals crawl out of the sewers and drag unsuspecting passers-by back down with them, clinging onto their boots…

Despite this, we wouldn’t really classify these as a “crime of fashion”: they do, however, remind us a bit of the monster who lives under the bed (Shut up, he does!), so we figured they were¬†notable¬†for that reason alone.

What do you think of them?

    the claws are the only part I like. the boots themselves are very “frankenstein’s monster” esque.

    I think those claws are hilarious, too bad the boot itself isn’t nicer

    Ugly boot, but cute idea. Wonder if I could get someone on Etsy to make the claws as shoe clips so I could move them around…..

    I love them! The boots are a bit drab but the claws are amazing.

    I actually really like the whole kit and kaboodle, even with th clunky boot (although I wish the books were either less clunky or were knee high.)

    Oh my.. I love the claw.. I think the understated boot balances out the claw – a slink black boot might have been too much with such a detail.
