The unique black and white shoe boots feature a lace up front, bullet hole detail and knuckle duster inspired stiletto heel. The heel measures 4 inches and the platform is a comfortable1 inch. Inspired by the popular gangster moll theme and sure to be the focal point of any burlesque outfit. Ideal for anyone looking to embrace the erotic masculine look, perhaps a strip tease routine involving a gender transformation?

Uber cool with skinny jeans, this season’s shirt dress or a monochrome mini dress.
An important consideration for any burlesque performer is whether or not to wear shoes for a set performance and if so – the style, heel height and fastening(s) must be suitable when coordinating the whole outfit. Of course the shoes must also be easy to remove and should not feature too many complicated straps or buckles.
We all know that stiletto heels flatter the posture, lengthen the leg and are the platform of the all important strut of the burlesque performer. A dramatic pair of heels can add an instant boost of sex appeal and simply kicking a pair of exotic burlesque shoes to the floor can appear excitingly erotic.
Dita Von Teese wears beautifully coordinated shoes with feather and gem stone embellishments for her burlesque performance. Delicate yet exotic and the burlesque queen can easily kick of her heels or remove with a flick of the wrist.
Burlesque stars Roxi D’Lite and Immodesty Blaize keep their shoes on until the very end of their performance, sustaining a perfect pin up posture and glamorous fantasy.
