    What do you think about creepers? I think I will never be able to like them, but in fashion, "never" is a bad word....

    They look like they would be very heavy to walk with, i'm not a fan of them but as you said never say never!

    i've liked them for a while i was abit unsure but decided they're ugly enough for me to love them:blush:

    im buying some when i get some money some classic ones with the crepe sole and D-rings.


    i already have some creeper style shoes from office only thing they're missing is the crepe sole.

    I was wondering if a thread on creepers would start haha
    A lot of "punk" guys and girls wear them where I live, but I never really gave them much thought until they began to pop up on fashion blogs. I actually really like them.
    I'm thinking about buying a white pair from Tukshoes.com
    I'm planning on getting the low ones because I don't think I can pull off a pair that are high. ^_^

    way too cartoonish for my taste, and I think I saw some goths wearing these which says enough.

    i believe that's the point--these are costume-y shoes that are very scene specific.

    i've been around them for a while, never liked them on me b/c even tho i know the context of them i can't help but be reminded of frankstein's monster when i see 'em--and i doubt anything is going to change that. :p plus i just dislike platform shoes more and more now unless they're like bal-boots from 06 or something. :p

    haha yeah they do resemble Frankenstein ! I never thought about that before.
    I'm not sure if I'll actually go through with the purchase, but I always love to experiment with shoes. :p

    I totally agree, never say never when it comes to fashion. I bet in 2 years everyone will be sporting them.

    okay if I can't say never when it comes to fashion, what about "I don't think I could wear that?" :D

    seriously, I don't think I could wear that. maybe I'd look silly in those :p

    Creepers are a perfect example of something that I have never wanted to wear, but I like seeing other people wear them.

    They are very scene-specific, to my mind; it will be interesting to see if they can be "re-branded."

    They look like something you would buy at Hot Topic. Therefore, I loath them with every fiber of my being. Yes, I used to shop at Hot Topic when I was an adolescent. A very deeply misguided adolescent.

    i remember those had a vague come-back when galliano did this show mixing Poiret silhouettes with teddy boys codes ...
    they even had a page in Vogue Paris ... it was in 2003 or 2004 (?)

    i think it looks great on certain people (punk, mainly) ...
    but not on me ! not on me at all !!

    I think it will be mainly punky people wearing them this time around as well, can't see them taking off much.

    My dad has a leopard print pair. He wears them with skinny jeans. He's pretty cool my dad.
