At first, I absolutely hated those shoes. But I'm seeing them a lot lately, and I gotta say I'm starting to like them! I think they're a good alternative to the Doc Martens overdose.


Btw, I need those 5cm x George Cox Creeper Boot, they're amazing.

Maybe the Goths in high school were onto something? I'm not into it. They're like winter's flatforms.

Well, I love them. For me they're embodiment of rock'n'roll and only few clothing have such bold statement. Of course, seeing too much of them with "high school goths" or "Japan fangirls" might start to annoy - not only the people who hate the shoes, but creepers prefers.

I have two pairs, black and white, and I find them super comfortable, good quality shoes that can transform any boring outfit to something edgier. I also like it how versatile they are: you can wear them whether it rains or shines, winter or summer, for more formal situations and excellent for gigs. I've worn my white pair constantly for 5 years and there's no sign of breaking. Not many inexpensive casual shoes (Converse, Vans, ballerinas..) are so long-lasting.

Somewhere where these is subculture going on. Particularly the punk or mod scene.

Creepers came out of the late 70s punk, ska, mod scenes, a modified version of 50s teddies. Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm would've sold them in their store "Sex" most likely. Here's an old shot of Johnny Rotten in a pair. Fun shoes, especially the pointy ones.

I just LOVE my creepers so much, I have a vintage cheetah hair/black patent pair and an Underground monk strap black & white pair. I'm thinking about DIY bedazzling the b&w ones a la Sonia Rykiel and Dirty Flaws blogger:
