Iron Fist Muerte punk platform heels.
I had seen these platforms whilst browsing in the shoe store 'Schuh' a while back. It is a usual occurrence for me to go through Iron Fists' designs; I am constantly awed at the entire collections' creativity. They are a little 'out there' but this only increases the want for them and their uniqueness.
On the morning of my birthday I tore off the paper on the gift that my other half had gotten me to have Iron Fists emblem staring at me from the daring black box. 'Made with love for a heartless world, Iron Fist girls' it said. And inside, there they were. I realise I'm lucky to have found a man who understands my addiction to shoes and even luckier that he's happy to feed it on such occasions.
I found the sizing was perfect, it's usually best to try heels on but I received these heels in my usual size six and they were neither too big nor too small. With -quite a thick- heel of eleven centimetres they are not the lowest, but they're not overly high and the platform front, at one-point five centimetres means you're supported well enough that your foot doesn't arch in an uncomfortable way. You also don't have the problem of slipping forward as you can do with high heels.
These particular peep toes have dark silver metallic and white skulls, a black background and gorgeous purple roses. Inside the shoe is lined with a striking metallic purple and slight padding beneath adding more comfort.
I've also seen pairs available in pink and silver, red and blue and green and grey. However, researching the locations of these online has proved the only pair available now at Schuh online is the pink and silver, priced at fifty pounds. The others can be found at www.thealternativestore.net (This purple pair priced at forty-seven pounds forty-nine pence) they have an entire section devoted to Iron Fist. The location I have seen them best priced though is Amazon, for forty-five pounds upwards. There you can find the majority of colours.
I realise that these shoes may frighten some people with their dramatic design but I assure you, teamed with a basic outfit or an outfit with purple accessories combined (or whichever coloured pair you choose) they really do look fantastic and don't just have to be worn by those into punk fashion. I personally think they are better suited to be worn at night while visiting pubs/ clubs and would be slightly bizarre looking should they be worn to anything formal.
My platforms have been worn countless times and the heel s are still perfectly intact, they continue to look relatively new due to them being easily cleaned with a damp cloth. I'd recommend these to any shoe lover, but obviously those not familiar to higher heels may suffer. I would still say give them a go though (I always find it helpful to wear the highest heels I own around the house before venturing out in another pair slightly lower, but if these are the highest heels that you own wear them for a set period of time for a couple of days to fully break them in before you venture out.)
For the price, these shoes really are excellent quality and will remain a favourite pair of mine until I eventually wear them into the ground.
Summary: A dramatic pair of platforms that give any outfit added buzz
