Demonia shoes are one of the largest companies that cater to alternative and in particular Goth people. They’re so big you can find them in your local stores and even your most pastel pink friend has heard of them! Pleaser, Bordello, Funtasma and Devious are all sub-brands of Demonia. But why exactly are Demonia shoes so popular and does their popularity come with a price? Keep reading to find out here!
Why are they so popular?
They give us the styles we love! The first reason they’re so popular is that they’re catering to a huge niche audience with tonnes of styles that you just can’t get anywhere else. They may be the first name you hear when searching for platform boots, cybergoth boots and they even cater for the niche lovers of winklepickers.
They give us the styles we love at prices we can afford!
They also give us the styles we love in materials that are wearable. Have you ever tried going about your average day wearing an over-the-knee style of Doc Martens or double platform New Rock Boots? If you have, you’ll know the light-as-air feeling you get when you take those heavy as hell boots off! Demonia shoes utilise strong foam soles that make boots that look like they have huge and heavy platform, light as air.
Does that popularity come with a price?
Unfortunately it’s well known that you shouldn’t wear the same pair of Demonia boots every day of the week. This is not our way of imposing out style-ethics on you, but the cold hard truth!
Demonia shoes are primarily concert and party wear. A quick google will show you review after review of customer’s attempts to wear these shoes everyday that ended with the shoe falling to pieces. While the concepts are cool and they come at much lower prices than other hardwearing brands, such as New Rock boots, beware that constant wear may reap havoc.
How Get the Most out of your Demonias
Here are some of our tried and true tips to getting the most out of your demonia shoes:
Do your research. Some styles of Demonia shoes like the winklepickers are harder wearing than others: the foam soled platform boots.
Find a great shoe repair shop and any pair of Demonia’s can last a lifetime. They can re-attach fleeting soles and even add tread to the bottom of smooth soles for winter.
Don’t wear them every day! Give your shoes a break once in a while and they might just last you a lifetime.
