Shoe of the Day | Iron Fist Bone Breaker Platform Bootie


Since Halloween is next week, I decided it's time to highlight some supernatural footwear. It's wasn't too difficult to find the right footwear brand that perfectly celebrates unearthly shoes. What better brand to highlight than the sinister mystique provided by Iron Fist. Sticks and stones may break your bones but this Iron Fist Bone Breaker Platform Bootie will never hurt you. This badass bootie features a man made upper with a perfectly manicured skeletal hand printed on the velcro'd flap at the top, skeletal jaw and teeth printed on the base of the 1 1/2" platform, and a towering 6" heel. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, sizes are running out fast. Get it on www.heels.com for $89.99 and www.dollskill.com for $68.90.

Alexander McQueen Black Leather Gold Zipper Trim Low-Top Sneaker

Zippers on the brain?  They are the the McQueen camp.  Alexander McQueen's new Black Leather Gold Zipper Trim Low-Top Sneaker is a great combination of luxury and daring.  A heavy duty gold zipper is wedged between the upper and the rubber sole and foxing.  Then more zip action returns to adorn the tongue of the sneaker.  With an embossed skull on the upper heel and McQueen moniker at the back lower heel, this sneaker could be trendy but the clean and easy execution makes it equal parts fashionable and classic.  Available now at Ssense.com.
