Skeletal Shoe Shopping

I ordered these shoes in the beginning of February from Arrogant Minnie and they finally arrived today. I had been drooling over the DSquared2 skeleton heels for some time, but the originals were too expensive, and I didn't like the front side of the shoe, it was too boring. The peeptoe versions were not to my liking either. Luckily after doing a lot of research on google, I came across the version Arrogant Minnie was selling. They are not exact replicas, because they don't copy the original shoes except for the heel, and I really liked the lacing in the front. It looked very sophisticated with plain black laces threaded trough plain black leather, just enough detail but not too loud. I was a bit worried, since I didn't find any reviews of the shop, and because a pair that I had been watching on eBay turned out to be very different from the model pictures when the shop published a picture of the actual product.

In the end, the shoes shipped fast and were very nice quality and looked just like the pictures on the site. I'm very happy, now I just have to wait for the snows to melt before I can take them outside!

The shoes are genuine leather and came with extra heel taps. The size was very accurate and the insole was nice and soft. They cost about 100 euros with the shipping and came from China.

Behold my sexy leopard socks ;P




The heels might need a new coat of paint someday, but they look good.

  2. OMG. And you know, I think the heels will look better if they get a bit more worn as well - more realistic. These are simply amazing!

    1. You could try emailing them, I understood the shoes are made by hand so they might be able to do other sizes as well :)

  5. Are they comfy at all? They remind me a bit of Litas which I think are comfy (for giant heels, lol).

    1. I only wore these for a short time indoors, but the insole was nice and soft so they felt comfy. And very alike to Litas!
