    These are two different styles of Marvel combat boots available from Wet Seal ($40 and $45). I'm not a big fan of the hodge-podge design, but that's just me and they don't make them in a men's 12 so they're out of the question anyways. Remember the old insult, "Your momma wea... / Continue →

    These are the Hogwarts houses high heels hand painted by Redditor Smartypants and worn by her sister-in-law akasha446 and the bridesmaids in her wedding. I'm not sure if the girls were actually sorted into the house of the shoes they wore, but I would have stabbed whoever got ... / Continue →

    You know what perfectly melds comfort and functionality? Not 3-D printed shoes with an integrated iPhone holster, but too bad, that's what we're getting anyways. Plus your phone will get really dirty, and who doesn't love a dirty phone? I want to hold all that sidewalk dirt ... / Continue →

    Because people are SICK and TWISTED, here's a pair of shoes that have 1,050 denture teeth embedded in the soles. Can you imagine the sound they must make walking on pavement? Not a good one. That said, I just made a pair with teeth I stole from the dentist because the hygien... / Continue →
