Thanks to Offbeat Bride reader Maureen for sending these Skelton Xray Pumps our way just in time for Halloween week!


Maureen explained:

I am obsessed with Halloween and was doing some browsing instead of tending to my grad school homework. Ummmm… these are awesome and wouldn't they be perfect for a Dia de Los Muertos wedding, or just for any super-cool offbeat bride who wants to rock them with her outfit?

Then, while researching that skeleton shoe, I came across these bad boys and just lost it…

The Metropolis Predator Skeleton Pump comes in black, white, red, and silver. And that backbone detail just blows me away.

On a similar note, check out all of Metropolis' steampunk-inspired footwear. I am officially in AWE.

  1. Um, yeah. That second shoe: Not Steampunk.

    Goth, maybe.

    Metropolis doesn't quite seem to know what Steampunk means, since they call one of their other shoes "Steampunk Sky Captain". Sky Captain is Dieselpunk, not Steampunk.

    • Oh I know, I don't know WHY the backbone skeleton shoe is in their steampunk collection, I though it was PERFECT for Halloween, etc.

      But even if they don't get their steampunk minutia right, those shoes are still all sorts of awesome in my book!

  3. Sweet that this got up so fast, glad I could help. Also when I found those shoes on the Spirit Halloween site, I noticed they had guys dress shoes to match and also a blood splatter design too.

  5. AWWW those Steampunk shoes just make me sad, since I wear 12 wide, and they only go up to 11 medium width. :(
