Beautiful, Electric, Custom Steampunk Heels


Look, I’m just as much against the glue-gears-on-it-and-call-it-steampunk aesthetic as everyone else. And so, no, I’m not really sure what function the mess of gears that adorn the custom shoes of possibly now defunct Etsy shop HotAirBallonRide could have… but I do know that the shoes have LED lights you can flick on with a switch. Unfortunately, they’re probably not being offered anymore, as all the links to HotAirBallonRide’s Etsy shop that we could find 404ed. Pic of the lights below!

And even more pictures of the shoes (which also come in red LEDS) at Trendaholic.

    The sad thing is, it looks like they stopped making them because the wife (it was A couple that made them) passed away. I had a set ordered, but nothing ever came of it. they refunded my money and the shop closed. sad day……
