Hi, my name’s Alanna and I’m a shoe hoarder. For all my sins it’s my biggest fashion lust; I have a shoe addiction and I think it’s somewhat getting out of hand?! I used to manage a SCHUH concession many moons ago and dear lordy lord do I miss that sweet 40% discount! Most of my shoedrobe (is that a thing? Shall I make it a thing?) consists of black boots from some of my favourite brands such as YRU, Vivienne Westwood and my old faithful brand which never lets me down, T.U.K.
The great thing about T.U.K is that though they sway towards a certain subculture of the goth, punk and those who don’t like to stay on the straight and narrow fashion path, you can really mix up your everyday look with a statement shoe such as this 3 Buckle Black Leather Studded Pointed Creeper as modelled by moi. The detailing of the silver studs add extra pizzazz to this super comfy creeper and I adore them. A bit of a top tip of you’re new to the T.U.K family, get the next size up. I’m between a UK 5/ 6 (so UK 5.5 in an ideal world) so went for a UK6 (EU39) and they fit perfectly, so-much-so that I’ve rarely worn any other shoes in my wardrobe over the past couple of months. Another posi thing about T.U.K is that they cater for the more ethically minded and offer a range of vegan footwear (I’ve got my eyes on their Silver Patent Tassle Loafer).
My fashion has always been varied, but I was a punk/ skater punk misfit in the 90’s and have always carved my own way in respect to my fashion tastes and how I present myself. Though I do this solely for me and never try to fit in with a certain tribe, yet I must admit I still favour band t-shirts, jeans and a good boot so not much has changed apart from looking a lot less like I’m in a 90’s ska-punk band.
These T.U.K creepers have stolen my heart and I think I might need to invest in another pair. The brand exudes creativity and individuality which I’m completely down with. So, you know, if someone’s struggling for a Christmas gift for me you get 10% off when you sign up to their mailing list 😉 I’m dreaming of a T.U.K Christmas <3
