Hot or Not?
Alexander Wang "Frankie" creeper combat style low boots. I believe they're Fall '09. According to one website, they're just shy of $700CAD! Whatever the cost, they're slightly out of reach for me.
I'm undecided about them. A part of me thinks "hot" 'cause they're pointy and flat. Girls, let's keep it real, heels kill! However, I do like the fact that they're tough, yet still feminine looking.
The other part thinks "not" 'cause creepers are really ugly '80s &/or reserved for people who still think that goth/raver is an acceptable style to dress in...not! Definitely not.
In any event, Frankies would probably only suit certain leg shapes. I know that sounds weird, but trust. Just because a shoe fits, doesn't mean that you should wear it or that it looks good on.
Speaking of combat boots, I want to mention that I dig guys who wear combat boots. I mean really dig.
Depending on whatelse he has goin' on, the look is comfortable-in-his-own-skin-rebel without trying too hard. As an example, please refer to photo on the right.
Remember, I do like men's shoes, so it's something that I'd notice!
Runners can look bummy. Dress shoes can look stuffy, too serious. Whereas the combat boot is a good in-between. Plus, they look better with each wear. Unless you're psycho military meticulous, this is not the kind of look that requires your black shoe polish!
Guys, pause and take a fashion note.
Mr. Wang, if you're reading, I'd like to personally test out the quality of your footwear et al. I'm a 6US (boots), 5.5US (heels), and other measurements available upon request.
