So check it, the Creepers or brothel creepers are back and are on practically every type of foot right now, well the ones who know about creepers anyway.
This blog was probably prompted by my cousin Chanel who was rockin a leopard print pair of creepers that were pretty dam dope! And also an old picture of my uncle and his friends back in the day!.
Now for those of you are are clueless about what creepers are they are a type of shoe. They kinda remind me of the crazy 'walabies' we used to wear in school as pictured below. Hmmm.
<----------------- see those, the white ones with the black soles, they are creepers as modelled by my handsome uncle Ken back in the 50's.
He was probably what everyone back then referred to as a teddy boy, huge quiffs, draped jackets, drainpipe or skinny jeans, one of the most popular and regular customers of creepers in the rocker era. He had style THATS for sure.
I'm currently shopping for a pair at the minute, its difficult because there is soooo many different colours and styles to choose from, and I must warn you, not everyone can pull these babies off but...... I'm confident what with my family history paving the way for us kids, ill be fine. Any budget can buy a pair, Ive seen some for £25 and Ive also seen some for £145 as pictured below from Urban Outfitters.
