Shoes

The Boxtrolls hits theaters tomorrow, and the stars of the film look ridiculously endearing. You see, they’re trolls who wear boxes. Boxtrolls! Nike has come up with special limited edition shoes inspired by the film called “TrollStrikes”. The fancy footwear includes touches like twine laces, steampunk lace locks, cheese print sockliners, and cardboard tongue labels. They’re a wonderful match to the world we’ve seen teased in trailers – I love seeing this level of theming.

The era of the 12th Doctor is in full swing, and Etsy products like these hand-painted shoes are starting to trickle in. These sneakers are the work of GallifreyanMarket who has painted them with all sorts of 12th Doctor tidbits. The front features his coat, the sides have the gears and clock seen in the opening credits, and then the back has the best part of all—the intense Capaldi stare. The Doctor is watching your back. Or your ankles as it were.

That’s right. If you want these kicks then they’re going to cost a whopping $950 for no good reason at all. They’re custom designed and themed to the PS4 and look pretty cool from the front, but things go a bit wonky on the heel. There are two HDMI ports and a special cable included, but they don’t do a thing. They just look good, or weird, depending on your point of view.

Designer Jonny Barry of FreakerSneaks will only be making 10 pairs of these sneakers and you can contact him at info@freakersneaks.com if you’re interested in snagging a pair.

While we’re all still holding out for flying cars, we can at least have these sneakers that look just like the self-lacing ones worn by Marty McFly in Back to the Future II. Plus, they are a million times cheaper than the Mags Nike released on eBay back in 2011.

In fact, these are officially licensed by Universal so they look exactly like the real deal complete with LED lights in the insoles. If only they actually laced themselves, too.

steampunk boots

Tired of carrying a purse while wearing your favorite steampunk ensemble? These fantastic vegan leather boots can help you with that problem. They have pouches! Plural! This design is so clever and cool looking I can’t stand it.

The mid-calf boots have three completely functional pockets with snap closures. They have reasonable one inch heels and would look great with jeans, skirts, and every steampunk and renfaire outfit ever. They’re available in black, brown, and dark red.

If you don’t feel like wearing a full Anna costume, you can still show off your Frozen love with themed footwear. Garden of Imagination has a beautiful pair of sneakers hand-painted to look like Anna’s dress. They feature the flower pattern, the blue of her shirt, and the bright pink of her cape. I think they’re gorgeous, and they look comfortable enough to wear on any and all adventures.

GeekiesCollage

On Sunday the second annual Geekie Awards took place in Los Angeles, celebrating geek culture with 12 different categories. This year a new category was added that focused on the growing area of geek fashion. The Fashion and Armor category, presented by Vanichi Magazine, was added after awards creator and showrunner Kristen Nedopak saw the fashions people wore on the red carpet at last year’s event.

“As a female geek, I’ve never hidden the side of me that embraces being a woman, and that means dressing up or down when I please. ‘Geek Couture’ has grown tremendously in the last few years, and more women are realizing they can still be geeks and look beautiful too!” Nedopak told Fashionably Geek. “We’re seeing designers getting creative with the art of fashion in these genres, and we wanted to honor that in this year’s show.”

There were five nominees in the category specializing in armor, steampunk, corsetry, and more. The winner will receive a full feature fashion spread in an issue of Vanichi Magazine.

Find out who won and get a glimpse of all the nominees’ stylish, geeky products after the break!
