McQueen-inspired Steampunk Heels
Everyone went nuts for the massive, crazy "armadillo" shoes from Alexander McQueen's SS10 show, but those show pieces weren't what I craved. I loved the steampunk metal heel on the booties and ballet pink pumps. Brass and bolts are fun details that can be worn in every day life. Understandably, I let out a happy gasp when I saw Hades, Metropolis's "Eiffel" platform heels. No pink, but they are available in pearl, black, brown and red. At just over $150, they're not a casual purchase, but they are hundreds less than any McQueen shoe ever.
