silver platform boots
Decades before Saint Laurent released their star-embellished Babies boots, before Vetements’ spangled platforms or Valentino’s sequinned version, there was Ziggy Stardust. David Bowie’s alter-ego, an omnisexual rockstar from space, commanded the 1970s glam-rock era. As Bowie himself recalled, “I re-invented my image so many times that I’m in denial that I was originally an overweight Korean woman.” During this period, coke-addled and paranoid, Bowie took to hiding his urine in the fridge “lest a wizard steal it”.
Hide your urine, your origin, or just be a true original in these one-off silver glitter platform boots.
