BL4D3 RUNN3R

Just got these F/W 12 LD Tuttle for Helmut Lang wedge ankle boots so I thought I'd share an updated family portrait of my power bottom heels.  I do have eight other pairs of heels, but the rest are for drag - these are, well, my boy heels.

The pair I got is a runway sample, and the name on the sticker inside of them let me know who wore them in the show - Kati Nescher.  The last shape is similar to some boots Ann Demeulemeester has made (which I love), but the wedge is 100% LD Tuttle - fragmented and so skinny it's like a blade under your foot.  They also have stretch leather panels on the sides of the shaft so the fit is sleek, but not suffocating.  The quality is impeccable, as well - I'm always wary of super skinny wedges like this, but these are some solid motherfuckers.

edit:  I just saw some detailed photos of the retail version in stores, and the wedge is lower and thicker.  Yikes.  I wouldn't mind a little more comfort (these are steep), but the second you diverge from the original design you lose some of its essence.  If you're as obsessive about shoes as I am I'm sure you'd never notice any difference between the ones on the runway and the ones in stores... but I consider myself lucky I got this pair.

"Androgynous Pratt student documents his outfits that run the gamut from everyday college kid to flamboyant club kid. Anyone who throws on a pair of Balenciaga platforms or 9" fetish stilettos to cheer himself up is pretty awesome and entertaining in our opinion!"

TOPSHOP INSIDE-OUT BLOG
"Dressing up is what William loves to do most. This young designer from New York doesn’t dress for fashion but just to have fun and enjoy himself like the big kid that he is. Both adorned as a man and woman, his blog isn’t your common “check-out-my-outfit” type blog. It’s a journey into NYC’s crazy nightlife with party outfits straight from the young creative/transvestite scene. Juggling Timberland homemade platforms, tie-dye t-shirts, camo baggy trousers and an orange furry jacket, his looks are absolutely bonkers-awesom, leaving us wanting more everytime. We strongly recommend that you check out his collection too . Made from Japanese anime babe-printed fabric, it’s pretty darn cool."

LYNN & HORST
"I strongly believe in the comeback of Manga and will further explore its use in contemporary art and fashion. Most probably, 'sexualization' will become a core motif. In the first instance, I'd like to draw your attention to the reanimation of Anime by Dripping Lazers."
