Raise your hand if you still don’t know what are the creeper or if hasn’t seen at least once walking through the city. Well, surely you will have noticed that, in terms of shoes, the trend of the moment are the brothel creeper. But from where they come from?
The brothel creeper were the top in the ‘50s: designed for the first time from the English George Cox, have become really iconic after the Teddy Boy begin to use them. Imagine the scenario : we are at the end of the 50s and the young dressed with drainpipe trousers, draped jackets in velvet clumps and creeper. For a long period these shoes were a sort of recognition element for all those that were reflected in various trend from punk to dark , from psycobilly to rockabilly. Even today, the same company produces the creeper, but to bring them to the forefront of the walkways were the big names, Prada first of all. Today, in practice, these shoes with high rubber soles, are in the shoe for all fashion victims and, perhaps, have ceased to indicate the membership in a particular group of underground culture, becoming a fetish object at the feet of those who wish to be absolutely trendy. From the anarchists in London to all the fashion girl around the world: who knows if Cox had imagined this kind of development. Vivienne Westwood , Malcolm McLaren, just to name someone, have to thank him, as well as all the women that can be glamorous even without high heels.
