While I will admit that I was a bit skeptical about Peter Capaldi as the Doctor when I first heard the news, I am really loving him! I am also loving the cool new spinning clock and gears title sequence or opening credits or whatever you want to call them. Speaking of that beautiful fan inspired title sequence, now another fan has taken it and used to to paint some really amazing high hell shoes which can be yours!
It looks like these shoes take 2-4 weeks to make and depending on where you live, shipping may take a while so if you want to get these for somebody as a Christmas present or just want them for yourself to enjoy the Doctor Who Christmas special, I would get these ordered now since it is already October!
One of the bad parts of working in a junkyard is that my shoes don’t tend to stay nice for very long. So while I may not skimp on my shoes when it comes to comfort, I don’t bother going for really cool looking shoes because they will end up dirty and greasy after a day or two. However, I still greatly admire really well done hand-painted shoes. Speaking of amazing hand-painted shoes, I think perhaps my favorite shoe artist is probably Bobs Made. In the past, I have posted a couple pairs of their shoes including some Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker shoes and some electrifying Pikachu shoes. Today, I found some beautiful Legend of Zelda Link shoes from them I thought you guys would love.
These amazing hand-painted Legend of Zelda Link shoes from Bobs Made were made for the boyfriend of a girl named Kristina. They were made with a pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars (apparently the canvas on these shoes is perfect for painting because they seem to be the preferred shoe by shoes artists), LUCAS acrylic paints, and Faber Castell waterproof pens.
These are truly some stunning shoes and perhaps the best looking Zelda shoes I have seen!
It always irritates me when things I really want aren’t sold in the US, mainly because the cost of getting something imported is insane. I’ve been known to pay upwards of $45 just to get a DVD shipped from Europe since it couldn’t be found in the US. Its not very often I have stuff imported (I would quickly go broke if I did it a lot), but sometimes it is just necessary and I suspect that this is one of those times because the Super Mario Bros shoes below are awesome!
These shoes come in red or green depending on if you want the old 8-bit Mario or 8-bit Bowser and the feature a Super Star on the side replacing the normal Converse Star.
Apparently if you can find them in Japan, they are running in the area of 20,000 yen or $195. At that price, I think I can live without them because by the time I got done with the import costs and everything, I wouldn’t be surprised if the total cost ended up closer to $300 and that is just crazy for Mario shoes. I will never pay that much for shoes!
These custom glittery exploding TARDIS high heels come from the clearly awesome Made By Bunny. Rather than selling these shoes, she does custom decorations on shoes you already own. To make sure you already have the style and size of shoe you like, you send her shoes you already own and then she will make custom designs like this amazing pair of TARDIS heels for you. I don’t know about other designs but at least in this case, having heels custom done like these TARDIS heels with glitter and rhinestones will cost you $150 (which seems reasonable considering how awesome these appear to have turned out).
That sounds like a much better idea to me than just buying shoes and hoping they fit right because I can’t even recall how many pairs of shoes I have tried on that should have fit fine based on the size but didn’t fit quite right or just didn’t feel good.
If the pictures I have seen are any indication, I suspect all of the Fanboy Fashion readers have descended on the San Diego Comic Con even this weekend so I am not even sure I should bother with this post since I doubt anybody will see it but since I am stuck at home since I couldn’t afford to go to SDCC this year, I might as well and just hope that people pass this post around the show floor and maybe I can get a few new readers.
Speaking of things you might see around the San Diego Comic Con, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if you spotted some lady walking around in awesome Batman heels like these.
Etsy seller WickedAddiction is selling these incredible Swarovski crystal encrusted Batman Heels for $175. This pair of Batman high heels are hand painted and covered with more than 2000 Swarovski crystals. The price may seem a little steep but when you think about the time and effort involved in the painting and placing of more than 2000 crystals, this almost feels like a bargain.
Too bad they don’t have shoes like these for guys because I have always wanted a pair of Batman shoes that say “BIFF!” and “KAPOW!”
Maybe its just a guy thing but I don’t think I will ever understand why women like wearing wedge shoes or high heel shoes. They just look ridiculously uncomfortable and frankly, I find it to be a bit deceptive. They make you look taller than you really are and your butt look better than it really is and I find that to be a bit deceitful. Maybe I’m the only guy that feels that way but I like women who are comfortable with who they are and not who they wish they were. Anyway, enough of my rant.
If you are the wedge shoe wearing type and a big Star Wars fan, I think I have found the shoes for you!
Etsy seller DeckoFab is selling these one-of-a-kind Star Wars themed wedge shoes for just $115! Apparently they also take custom orders as well that are decoupaged using your favorite comics, magazines, pictures or fabric.
I wish there were tennis shoes that looked like this because I would be all over them! To each their own I suppose.
It is rather unfortunate that the styles of shoes I tend to buy from my favorite shoe manufacturer (New Balance) don’t lend themselves to being painted or really customized in any way. I appreciate that the mesh they use allows my foot to breath but you can’t really customize it and it lets liquid through like its not even there which can be very annoying. However, for those that like to customize their shoes, there seems to be no better shoe to do that than with some Chuck Taylor All Stars by Converse.
In the past, I have posted some pretty cool hand-painted Doctor Who shoes like the amazing 10th and 11th Doctor sneakers and the TARDIS chucks however, I think the Doctor Who shoes below might be my favorite pair of Doctor Who shoes.
Although these are the standard shoes they make, if you want other Doctor Who icons painted on there, they will do them by request so if you want a Weeping Angel and K-9 instead of a TARDIS and Dalek, make sure to let them know when you order!
For as much as people seem to like them, I have just never had any desire to try on a pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star sneakers. I have seen some people make some incredible works of art on them like the Yoda Chucks I posted in the past as well as the really cool Street Fighter sneakers but I guess I just have a hard time convincing myself to change shoe brands. Considering I order my shoes online where I really don’t have the opportunity to try other kinds like I would in a store, it makes me hesitant to try something other than my beloved New Balance. Anyway…
Speaking of hand painted Chucks, the fantastic artist over at Bobs Made created this fantastic looking hand painted 10th and 11th Doctor Converse Chuck Taylor shoes. Whether you are a Matt Smith fan, a David Tennant fan or just a lover of the color blue, I think you are going to love these shoes!
If they sold Doctor Who shoes like this where I get my shoes online (Zappos), then I might be willing to venture out of my comfort zone and try a different brand of shoes. Until that happens, I guess I will be sticking with New Balance and just loving shoes like these from afar.
Having no artistic skills at all, I buy shoes that I can’t really decorate since I wouldn’t know what to do with them if I did and they would like like crap if I even tried to paint or draw something on them. However, there are some people out there that like to buy shoes that can be easily customized because unlike me, they have the artistic skill required to draw something other than the worlds ugliest stick figures. In this particular case, one of those people also happens to be a Doctor Who fan.
Any Doctor Who fan is sure to appreciate these hand painted VANS sneakers made to look like the TARDIS and a Dalek. Unfortunately, I don’t know who painted these awesome shoes to give them credit so if you know who did this to these shoes, please let us know in the comments below so they can get the credit they deserve!
Thanks to the material my shoes are made of, any real cool customizations just aren’t possible which makes me kind of sad, but I still enjoy seeing the works of art that people make out of their shoes. In this particular case, I stumbled across some really cool hand-painted Doctor Who shoes featuring the TARDIS and the 10th and 11th Doctor.
These fantastic painted Doctor Who shoes which features the TARDIS and the 10th and 11th Doctor’s clothing was posted on Facebook by Post Pond Depression. Their mom made them for them and I think they turned out great! Unfortunately, I think when you get laces in these shoes, I think it will kind of ruin part of their Doctor Who charm.
I wish you could buy shoes like these somewhere because I would love to have a pair.
