Former Etsy seller HotAirBalloonRide has designed some gorgeous steampunk heels. Yes, I’m going with the loose definition of steampunk. The back part of the shoes are covered with gears, and the heels and toes are illuminated with blue or red LEDs. They even have tubes to round out the design.
I think the heels would be cooler if the gears all actually turned and if they emitted steam as the wearer walked, but they look awesome without those features. It would also be neat if they were still available, but the Etsy shop seems to have gone out of business.
Check out more photos after the break.
