Before I get into it, this is meant to be fun. My top ten may (and will) look different than the next person’s list, especially as I’m just using MH shoes in my own collection which means shoes from the newer release dolls like ‘Ghouls Rule’ and ‘I Love/Heart Fashion’ weren’t under consideration. To get in my exact frame of mind, stick “Shoes” by Tiga on in the background as you read (or don’t but it’s a great song =p)
10. Dead Tired Slippers
They are criminally cute and I love how they differ just enough from character to character. I actully can’t wait until I get my hands on the new DT dolls just because they should come with new versions of these cutie slippers.
The rest (9-1) are in no particular order, as trying to pick a ranking for these would be far too hard. Trust me, I tried. (Click the thumbnails for bigger pictures in the gallery).
Dawn of the Dance Lagoona
So delicate and stylish, her clear ‘wave’ shoes suit her personality and her dress perfectly. They give me a glass slipper feel ala Cinderella and (luckily) they make up for the gloriously horrible hair do DotD Lagoona sports.
Roller Maze Lagoona
All four roller skates released so far are awesome, actually. I just preffer the scales and fins on Lagoona’s to the more muted designs on the other three (Ghoulia, Frankie and Operetta). The wheels actually turn on these!
The last of the Lagoona shoes I’ve included (although I did want to include another pair I couldn’t find room for) these lace up lovelies with cork soles almost got a dishonerable mention for being extremely impractical shoes for a science lab.
Nefera de Nile
Very regal looking kicks that sport adders on the heal, and they upstage every single one of Cleo’s shoes. These are shoes fit for a Queen. Or just the Queen B-ch!
Sweet 1600 Draculaura
She has a wardrobe with 100s of years worth of fashion, so is it any wonder she has shoes that look edible? I think the icing/frosting strap is my favourite =)
2.0 (School’s Out) Clawdeen
When I first saw her in person I actually let out a “woah”. I want these kicks for myself. From the zips to the gold spike heal, these boots are just badass.
These shoes are just simply clever, and they look like they belong on those boney feet. I think the little bone bows on the front that get me the most.
Spectra Fashion Pack
It was a tough choce to choose between basic Spectra’s shoes and these ones as both are great. I went with the fashion pack ones only as I love the way they swallow her transperent feet looking just that little bit more ghostly.
C. A. Cupid
Lastely, even though they could be accused of being a little too busy, they do sport heart chain links and bow and arrow heels making them a great final addition to my top ten.
Dishonourable Mentions – Scream Uniform Clawdeen
Open toed and heeled soccer boots? I know the story goes that Clawdeen is the only one athletic enough to be able to wear these effectivly, but I don’t buy it. You’re going to hurt yourself Clawdeen. Not to forget the choice of plastic socks over regular cloth ones do annoy a small chunk of collectors out there.
Dishonourable Mentions – Recolours
We all know it’s bound to happen with a line of dolls this involved and large, doesn’t mean we are going to ignore it when it does happen though. All the shoes are recoloured in the ‘I heart/Love Fashion’ Frankie and Abbey doll packs. And it was the first thing I noticed.
