She’s femme & she’s fierce!
Introducing the bold & daring spiked slingbacks straight from the center of my overly chaotic mind! Frankly, I’m still not sure what the inspiration for this pair was… All I know is that I woke up super geeked and content one morning cause I’d conquered my fears of completing my first pair, but I wanted so badly to create something new, something exciting, and most of all, something relatively easy to achieve.
Now, don’t get me wrong. Creating The Rebel was a very fulfilling challenge for a first-time shoemaker like myself, still it was almost as though I NEEDED to prove to myself that I could make a pair of shoes within a given time and on my own before it was “official”. You know?
Left: Leather pattern pieces; Center: Lasting process; Right: Toe fitting prior to lasting.
As excited as I was about finishing my first pair of shoes, it was one of those days where I just couldn’t leave my apartment, the mere thought of “adulting” left a sour taste in my mouth and holding a decent conversation felt as impossible as a tree growing out of the sky. Really. As bad as the day was panning out, all I wanted to do was create!
After 5 seemingly long minutes of brainstorming simple footwear designs that oozed passion, power and a lump sum of “Don’t you dare f**k with me”, I came up with these chic spiked slingbacks that met the criteria.
Left: Cement-lasting technique; Center: Insole dressing; Right: Silver screwback spikes
Between getting stabbed continuously by these ruthless spikes and peeling a good chunk of my middle finger off with the skiving blade again, I think it’s safe to call this red number FIERCE.
Take a look at the final product below & drop a comment with some fabulous ways you would rock this pair! 😉

For all those interested, you can purchase the rotary punch tool used to achieve the decorative holes via Amazon. Side note: It’ll definitely be a lifesaver when that belt needs a little tightening 😉 Similar screw back bullet stud embellishments can also be purchased here!
