“ Brand: Iron Fist / Type: High Heels „
Appearance and Material
The eyeballs and tentacle heels are available in the blue shade(picture above) and a yellow shade in a slightly different style and bigger heels. I have the blue pair however as they are nicer than the yellow ones. The show design is pretty self explanatory, it's eyeballs and tentacles all over the shoe. There are large printed gooey eyeballs which are pink and turquoise all over the shoes with squid or octopus like tentacles scattered around as well. The design is very busy, there is a lot going out but it's a really cool and different design making them really unique. The shoe itself has rounded toes with a double layered pink and dark pink bow on the front of each toe, The bow's are a kind of plastic feeling material. On each side of each shoe is two holes with light pink stitching through them, this is on both sides of the shoe on both shoes, this is the same material as the bow's.
Purchasing and Wearing Eyeballs and Tentacles
When you buy these gorgeous heels they arrive in the traditional iron fist box, bright pink with zebra's printed all over it along with the brand name, inside the shoes are carefully and neatly wrapped in iron fist printed tissue paper making these look lovely in the box. Taking these out the box they look slightly patent in certain lights which is nice. Sliding these on for the first time the inner solo is very soft and spongy probably to keep you feeling comfortable in these but sliding my foot inside I noticed a lot of room in the toe area, my feet didn't slip around or move around but I felt like I had room to breath without being uncomfortably squashed like some iron fist shoes. These fit normal width feet but they was a few millimeters loose on each side of my feet but not enough so they will come loose and slip on and off.
The heels on these are only 3.5 inches which is one of the main reason I bought these, I am really small with big feet, I'm 5ft 2 with size 6 feet which doesn't sound bad but it does look bizarre So I wanted to give myself a little bit of height and because my feet are angled they look more dainty. I got these for general usage really and not for nights out as I'm still too small wearing these next to all my friends, but I used to wear these to college for the fashion show and photography when doing photo shoots.
Putting these on you must make sure your careful what your wearing because of the colours are pink and blue and very busy, so you want this to be the main part of your outfit anytime you wear these because they are very eye catching shoes, I used to wear these with black tight skinny jeans and a black top with a belt, and wearing them any other time I try to wear with darker colours such as dark blue, navey's, blacks or greys, Because this draws attention to the shoes, also I am very pale and find it hard to wear bright colours so my clothes are usually dark anyway which is why I always have bright hair, accessories or shoes.
With the heels only being 3.5 inches it makes it easy to wear these for a long period of time without them hurting your feet, the did ache at first because they were my first heels that I wore for any lengthy time but I soon got used to these, the bottom of these is smooth except for a few lines on the bottom near the toe end but these wont help you grip, so when I went into the town center where it is all tiles and slightly on a ramp at the entrance sometimes I slipped a little which was funny, especially if it had been raining a bit and the bottoms were wet. The heels on these wear down at a ridiculous rate and I found every roughly 5 times I wore these I would have to get them re heeled.
Conclusions, Price and Availability
Overall I love these shoes, I always like to look nice I don't have anything specific for a night out, as it's great that these heels are small so I can wear them casually and still look great. I never used to be very feminine, after shaving all my hair off wearing baggy jeans and trying to hide my body for no reason, I've started to come out of my shell a bit more now and I dress properly and it's nice to look at my feet and see how lovely they look (even if they are massive!) The downsides to these are they are very bright which some people might not like and it can be hard to wear the right colours with these but it's easy for me because I wear darker clothes, the other downside is having to get these re heeled pretty often. You can buy these from any alternative shop or type them in in Google and a lot of websites will come up which stock these, they come in women's sizes 3-9 and have been reduced on some websites from£49.99 to £39.99
I am a total lover of shoes, and I have a huge collection of them, that just seems to keep on growing and growing. One of the most recent additions to my giant footwear collections is my 12th pair of Iron Fist shoes.
Iron Fist is a shoe and clothing designer that make an alternative style of clothing, and it is a company that I love. The latest pair of shoes that I own from them is their Eyeballs and Tentacles pattern. This is pretty much what it sounds like, the shoes have a pattern of eyeballs and tentacles all over them .
These are a heeled pair of shoes, but not as high as some of the other Iron Fist shoes I own. These ones are 3 inches high, and there is a cute little bow on the toe area of each shoe, which I think adds a certain cuteness to the shoe.
These shoes have a classic shape to them, and the heel is thin, but has a thick, sturdy base and I actually find these quite easy to walk in. The sides have a thick top, so they do not rub or annoy the delicate skin on the sides of the feet, and there is a thick padding on the inside of the shoes, so your feet will be comfortable when walking. I found it feels almost like a second inner sole has been placed in the shoe!!
You can see how well these shoes have been made, and the Iron Fist name has become known for well made goods. You can see the workmanship that has gone into these shoes, and the planning of them seems to be very good, as they fit my feet so well, there is no rubbing or slipping, almost like a dream shoe.
I have worn these for hours on end, walking for miles and I have never found there to be a problem. They are comfortable and even work well for a night out dancing with my friends. I have worn them with socks and without, and never found either to be different, they still feel great on my feet.
Iron Fist shoes are expensive, but I have found them to be of great quality, stylish, comfortable and very long wearing, so personally I think that they are plenty good value for money and this is part of the reason as to why I keep on buying more and more shoes from Iron Fist.
If you are a girl who likes her shoes to be cool and quirky, yet comfortable and supportive, then these are the shoes for you. You can buy them in Schuh stores around the country as well as on the Schuch website. I paid £54.99 for my pair, and I think that this is a great price for a wonderful pair of shoes.
I give these shoes a 5 out of 5 stars, as I can not fault them at all, and I recommend them.
