TOPIC: Winklepickers!!!

Winklepickers!!! 3 years 1 week ago #995

You probably never heard of this expression :)
That is because this wonderful piece of footwear is something truly alternative! Not many would dare to rock winklepickers in public :)
Deriving their origins from 15th century nobleman footwear, they look unique and in most cases AWESOME!!!
Trad goths wear them as a must-have, rockabilly guys also, mods and most recently New wavers and Post-punks.
Do you like them? How would you wear them?

I see those coming into fashion again with the hipsters rising :)
Didn't know they had such a funny name, I just call them pointy shoes :D
I think that hipsters are new wave of Mods, that is why the goth is getting more popular... People used to mix these two subcultures a lot..

Such a funny name for shoes :D
Those are definitively coming back in style :)
What are Mods? I now I can google it but it is more fun to ask you guys :D

My dear dear children and other kindred souls...

I can not possibly explain you how glad I am that "pikes" didnt siezed to exist throughout all these years.
I had them on my graduation. As dumb as I can be sometimes, I didnt watch them out (I lost even a single photo with them) and now I miss them so much.
Between us :dry: sometimes I go and piss myself (and others) drunk on rockabilly pub gig just becouse I want to aggro those creeps (love them all) around so they attempt to walk funny in pikes, toward me and bounce me out.
They are comedy reborn to me, motherfockers :lol:

Here on North, they are kinda extinct. All we have left is hardbollers, Metal and deathcore creeps mainly

Rockabilly is pretty much alive and kicking and gaining popularity thanks to hipsters :D

When I see them, I can say I would NEVER wear them. But I must also admit that I'm a total fashion victim and if they become popular enough, I will buy a pair and wear them happily. Last year I sad I would never wear creepers and now I own 2 pairs and love them :D

I know what you mean :D We girls are so susceptible to fashion standards and messages. Few years ago, I wouldn't have gray or white hair... Now I;m seriously thinking about it :D

These shoes have been on and off alternative fashion radar since early 80's and thoughts on them are quite divided. I personally love them they work well with trad goth and witchy style I like :D

When I was a pre-teen, I wanted to wear shoulderpads like my mum and aunt and all those lovely ladies from Dynasty :D And now I cringe if I even think of them... And those hairstyles....
Point is: Our styles change and evolve as we grow and evolve. That is completely natural and, we do it all the time :)
