So I recently wrote about High Fashion's Crush on Catwoman, and the trend continues with a new line of high end designer shoes from French fashion designer Andre. He's also designed a line of shoes based around Wonder Woman's iconic costume, which are included in this post because some of these need to be seen to be believed. They're only available in Europe, and you can't actually buy them online (I smell secondary market price hikes on the way soon) but if you're in Europe, well, have fun buying up all the designer shoes!



Lots more goodies behind the cut. )

Okay, look, I'm going to go on record right now and say: Ew. Ballet flats. Other than the ridiculously impractical and pointless kitten heel, there isn't a shoe I loathe with deeper passion. I won't go into details, because that'd be exceedingly boring, but God, I hate ballet flats so, so much.

Also, I'm not sure why Wonder Woman's costume has been translated into what appear to be nineteen forties orthopedic bowling shoes. I mean, I can kinda follow the pattern of logic, given Diana Prince being an army nurse during WWII originally but still, in a modern fashion context...what? Is anyone actually going to buy those?

Anyway. In case you weren't aware already, this isn't the first time that DC has teamed up with a super high scale designer to help celebrate their characters. As I recall, they teamed with a bunch of French designers about a year ago and brought such gems as this pair of thigh high Catwoman inspired boots to the scene:



Additionally, there's the nOir DC Comics jewelry line, which I was working on a post about sometime last month but totally forgot to complete because I am lazy and awful but here, have a Catwoman Claw necklace to make up for it:



...and I also didn't talk about designer Jeremy Scott's Superhero inspired line from fashion week this past spring.

So pretty much what I'm saying is I have a Superhero themed fashion post in my future whether I want it to be there or not. OH WELL, I GUESS I HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO WINDOW SHOP FOR COMIC BOOK RELATED FASHION FOR THE GREATER GOOD the greater good, RIGHT GUYS? RIGHT. I WILL JUST GO AND DO THAT NOW.

This appears to be from the seventies. NEATO KEEN!

Found on etsy, this custom made latex dress is just perfect for golden/bronze age Catwoman cosplay!

This handmade looking change purse was found on ebay. Nifty!

I wish I could find a way to explain how much I love this costume. The silver playing on the gray, the black boots and gloves...it's everything I love about the BTAS version of the character, but improved. The gold belt has always bothered the ever loving hell out of me.

I actually managed to get my hands on a copy of this after a lot of effort. Expect scans eventually!

I love finding poster images I've never seen before...
