Great Shoes for Women Rockers?

One of our readers asked me today if we knew of any great shoes that look pretty/funky/fun on stage but are still comfortable for women to perform in… Being a rather fashion-challenged guy, I throw the topic out to you, dear reader, and implore you to share your fashion finds in the comments. 🙂

Here in L.A. a lot of my friends buy through mail-order at They have tons of different styles of shoes and the quality is much better than the typical leather boots you find on Melrose or in the so called “goth clothing stores”… you will look just as funky or deviant as you desire and still feel great in your shoes!

    I hate to say it, but no, there is no such thing as comfortable, stylish shoes for women!! Thankfully, I’m country, so I wear boots most of the time. Occasionally,tho’ I will go on in heels, and then pay for it for the next few days.
