Creativity comes from within. If not, you can always steal someone else’s design.

“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”

Here’s my rendition of Jeffrey Campbell’s Tick. I saw these shoes almost a year ago while walking from Union Square to Times Square with DMB. Immediately I was in love. These shoes were unlike anything I’ve seen before. They were a mixture of Goth with the hardware of the metal thumbtacks but still stylish with the genuine leather wedge-bootie style and could be paired with any outfit to add some edge. And because they are so appealing JC was able to tack on a price of $200!

You know me so you know I wasn’t going to pay that. Being the google freak I am I seen that a couple people did a DIY version. My DIY Tick shoe is made with Dolce Vita rope wedge from Targé, 3 packs of silver thumbtacks from Staples, and crazy glue. Check ‘em out!

Can't wait to wear them out with some destroyed jeans and baggy white tee! I'll keep you posted.
