You know I’ve been looking at creepers such as those made by TUK for a while… I’ve not taken the plunge mainly because I am concerned I would look a bit odd in that style shoe with my wider-than-average legs. But the other day, actually a couple of weeks ago now, Spartoo featured some new Rocket Dog styles on their blog, and I instantly fell in love with their take on the flatform.
These are the Rocket Dog Beehive in black, they are a derby boot with creeper-style sole, and after reading the blog I went straight to the online store and ordered them. I’m not sure I’ve ever been so impulsive – even with shoes I tend to be very calculated, know exactly what I want in what colour and even brand. Not this time, I simply had to have them.
Firstly, I adore the velvety material. They are black but in that material they almost sparkle under the lights. The ribbons-for-laces add to the feminine almost party-look, could I get away wearing these with a party dress?! The thick sole gives me a little bit of height without any added pressure on the ball of my feet, and the shoe is just perfectly shaped from all angles.
Only problem… it just won’t stop raining. There is no way these are seeing the outside world if there’s any risk of rain – they’d ruin instantly. So for now I’ve been stomping about the house in them, waiting for my moment to show them off to anyone who dares look at my feet.
