Boots with metal

I recently did a post on the original boots with Metal detail... New Rocks.

I noticed recently a slight trend with incorporating metal in boots - Lady Ga Ga featured some Alexander McQueen boots featuring metal decoration. Very nice. The amount of alternative fashion the Lady does portray in her clips is damn impressive!

These two are collaborations between Terry De Havilland and Melbourne Jewellery esigner William Griffiths. I've written about William a few times here (he is one of my fav jewellers), his jewellery is very cutting edge, and he takes the edgier side of life and is want to give it life through his jewellery.
Here he has added some of his work to DeHavillands latest line of footwear.... including a play on the word stilleto (stilleto can mean the high heel of stilleto shoes, or is the name given to a type of knife).
Anyways...very nice work by both of them here.

For more of De Havillands shoes, see here:
Article from Vogue UK -
And for William Griffiths Metal Couture range - here's his newish website (he has a store in Melbourne, but is stocked in various shops)

I saw Alt magazine site. I hope to see a magazine edition one day. I´m from Brazil and we don´t have this kind of magazine here, but we have a big alternative public.

I also hope one day alternative brands could be able to product this kind of shoes, they are from famous brands and its very expensive =/

Thank you Lady skull, very kind. Yeah, they really are one offs, and the price would be nasty.

I guess the thing with these items is, they are really one of a kind individual items, and there is an argument to mass produce defeats the purpose. Its all that Individuality vs accessiblity argument, methinks.

I actually think William's jewellery does seem to get "referenced" by a number of other jewellers.

PS this blog doesn't have anything to do with alt fashion magazine, though Its one of my favorites!

I noticed you guys were talking about high heels and I wanted to share something with you that you might be interested in...

A little over 2 years ago, my husband and I were married in Los Angeles, California. Unfortunately, the day of our wedding was spoiled with rain. We had been having the wedding out on the grass and believe it or not, I was wearing high heeled shoes! They have been ruined by the end with the day :(

Even though this was one of the worst experiences I've ever had with my shoes, it actually led my sister in law to create a item which is just awesome! It's already been featured on TV shows like the Girls of the Playboy Mansion, as well as the show Kendra.

Heels Above will help you protect your pricey heels from sinking in mud, slipping in cracks, and walking on sand and gravel. It's a new merchandise, and I thought I'd share it with all of you.

They're taking orders now. You are able to order one pair, or a few dozen for your big wedding day.

I hope you guys like it... If you have any questions, feel free to drop them an email on their website:
