Fugly Feet Fanclub

What do you do when your chunky soled shoe obsession becomes the high street's hottest trend..? Go underground. I'm talking the dark corners of eBay.

On the hunt for a link to my little sister's imitation Litas (that rascal STILL hasn't sent me the link to them!), I stumbled upon an absolute goldmine of the craziest, coolest, most fugly-chic shoes. All for about £30. I have often scoured eBay for cheap creepers and it's an impossible task. I guess that I should have widened the net and searched 'platform lace-up' instead! I am so happy I have found these two shops in particular. These mad shoes look genuinely different to anything chunky-soled I've seen on the high street so far! 

(click the pics to visit the eBay listings!)




BIZARRE and amazing.


These are actually gorgeous! 


These are the ones I'm most likely to buy I think. Classic leopard creepers! And without an overly round toe that makes them look orthopaedic. Score. 

And a special mention to these designer knock-offs...

Now, I haven't ordered from these shops yet so can't vouch for the quality your £30 is going to get you, but I've had a quick scour of the feedback and everyone seems happy.

Good lord, bargains excite me! Do you have any go-to shoe sites/shops when you want a change from the usual?

  1. Nooo don't tease me with amazing cheap shoes that only go up to a size 6! eBay shoes torment me and my big ol' size 7s all the time!

  2. The leopard creepers are awesome! If you get them please please let us know what the quality is like, as I'd love some creepers but can't afford to fork out £80-odd! xxxx

  10. Some of the shoes you can get from China are so batshit crazy that I want to buy them just for a talking point!

    I've just recently bought some boots from http://www.aliexpress.com . Just search for a quantity of 1 down the left-hand side to make sure none of the wholesale ads come up. I haven't received them yet as I only ordered them a week ago, but they were cheap and the seller had good feedback.

    Oh, and the cheapest Lita-alikes I've found so far are these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Lady-Womens-Platform-Round-Toe-High-Heels-Shoes-Ankle-Boots-2-Colors-/230679217485?pt=US_Women_s_Shoes&var=&hash=item7b6889d392#ht_9137wt_1037

    About £16 delivered I think.

  17. What a great post! I may have to reignite my eBay account....God help me x

  18. oh god...student loan due...need for creepers rising. god the black and gold olympia rip ticks so many crazy boxes for me...wedge, black and gold together as they should be. i've seen some of the topshop ones and look really comfy but still not enough of a chunk for me. i am convinced that creepers are going to finish off like 80% of my winter outfits.no shame in it. xx

  19. I you search eBay for 'platform boots' you get all sorts of amazing shosies. Including imitation Litas.

    I think at £30 I'm going to buy some simply to prance around in for photoshoots. I'd never be able to walk in them!

    I love the brown, pointed brogeycreepers. Want. (That's not like bogeycreepers...)

  20. Thank you so much !
    I have been debating over buying creepers for some time !
    And with the £80 price tag wasn't sure if i would
    Get my moneys worth out of them !
    But for £30 who can argue :D

  23. I may have to own up to buying a pair of knock off Gareth Pugh wedges from an ebay shop just like these ones. Your £30 gets you exactly what you'd expect. Mine stink of cheap plastic (10 months on) and are not very kind to my feet, but in the dim light of a club they look bloomin marvelous! Certainly not for everyday wear though - fashion one offs only x

  24. This is one of my fave Ebay shops - they have amazing knock-off Westwood rocking horse shoes!

  25. Those CO one's are bloody amazing!! Love them!
    And good work on the leopard creepers.
    Some of them I must admit I saw and went "ugh" but that's the fugly shoe appeal.

  29. I'm in the same boat as Fritha with the size 7 feet! :(
    I've been meaning to say for a while, no idea if anyone else has said anything/ had the same problem, but your sidebar has completely stopped working for me, like I can't see it at all!
