Skeletons, spikes and steampunk shoes, OH MY! #Wedding Shoes#dia de los muertos#halloween#shoes#steampunk October 24 | Megan Finley meganfinley This post features offbeat affiliates, meaning that if you buy something featured, you'll be financially supporting this site's mission of bringing awesomeness to readers everywhere. 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.

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. Reply 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! 1 agrees Reply I just messed myself because those shoes are effing gorgeous!!!! Reply Ahahahahahah! RIGHT!? I just found out about them today and had to get a post up ASAP. Reply 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. Reply wow both are so beautiful. especially the second one is awesome. 1 agrees Reply the Steampunk Collection is shoe-gasm worthy and I really love the Predator Skeleton pump! thank you Megan! Reply You are MOST welcome. Reply AWWW those Steampunk shoes just make me sad, since I wear 12 wide, and they only go up to 11 medium width. Reply And that just made ME sad! It's like a trail of sad Megans. Reply Shoebuy has them in 12 so please don't cry: http://www.shoebuy.com/funtasma-x-ray-12/459438/974021 Also, a good shoe repair place should be able to stretch them. You know, if you really love them. Reply I die. That first pair is just omg. Reply I've seen those skelton shoes, they come in boots too.
