Vegan leather is a big trend right now in the fashion industry, especially for shoes and boots. But what the heck is vegan leather anyway? Here is the answer and how it compares to genuine leather.

I am so happy to say filters are now working on the stores! Filters let you more easily find exactly the style, size and color you are looking for among our hundreds of styles.
For example, see the screenshot at right from our women's shoe store, Shoe Ooodles. Now instead of just browsing page after page of women's pumps (which you can still do of course!), you can select your size by clicking on it in the window at the left of the page (the example shows size 8) which would display all shoe styles that are made in that size. If you also select a color like the Red / Burgundy shown in the e..
Genuine leather is not hard to care for as long as you follow a few simple tips. These tips apply to both cow leather as well as pig and lamb skin leather.
If your leather item gets wet, dry it slowly at room temperture - do not use a hair dryer or other heat source to try to quickly dry it as leather can shrink or crinkle if dried quickly. If the piece is water saturated, stuff it with newspaper or other filler to maintain it's original shape while drying. This is especially important for leather hats and boots. Skirts and other clothing items should be laid flat.
Designer Christian Louboutin seems to have taken a page out of Pleaser USA's catalog to design these sparkly ballet heels.
Louboutin teamed with the English National Ballet to create these sparkly nude satin heels inspired by ballerina toe shoes and slated to be auctioned off at the Summer Party gala in London along with other coulture created items. They have an 8 inch high stiletto heel with the signature red bottom of course and tons of sparkling rhinestones.
I've been seeing this image all over the web mostly with disdain that no one could wear this style of shoe. But Pleaser has had..

American Idol Boots
American Idol contestant Kree Harrison has been rocking the stage - twice in these spectacular Fascinate leather boots by Pleaser USA.
On April 17, Kree wore them while performing "She Talks to Angels" by The Black Crowes and again on April 24, performing Susan Tedeschi's "It Hurt So Bad."
The gorgeous Fascinate 2018 black genuine leather boots have a split 1 1/2 inch high platform with a 6 inch heel with a hand-applied rhinestone pattern up the back on a suede inset. The split dual platform is encrusted in more rhinestones which also cover the heel - boots truly made for a star!

Pleaser USA's Fascinate 1011 ankle boots were worn by Kree Harrison as she nailed her performance of "What the World Needs Now is Love" being named in the top 2 of the night (along with Candice Glover).
The Fascinate boots were one of several styles women's stylist Nra ordered from us, so keep your eyes pealed - you just may see more of our awesome styles on the show!

Get the awesome Hades Raven Boots American Idol purchased from GothicPlus.com for Angie Miller to wear in Season 12 of the hit show!
I finished updating all the Demonia and Pleaser shoes and boots currently on the store with their new pricing. Most prices have actually dropped - some by as much as 10-20%!
Of course a few items did go up - mostly the genuine leather boots, but the vast majority of items are now lower priced!
I was a bit too ambitious to think I could get the prices updated and add the other information, stock update and additional photos at the same time. I will finish doing this probably over the next few weeks, but the prices are at least current.
I will also be adding many more Please..
Scary High Heels
We all have seen those totally rediculous shoes on fashion runways. As bad as McQueen Armadillo and other shoe creations are, I have to say these shoes, a collaboration between artist Leanie van der Vyver and Dutch shoe designer René van den Berg are the worst of the worst.
Apparently they were designed to be a commentary on today's impossible standards of beauty more than intended as functional shoes (though a pair was sent to Lady Gaga by the designers). Watching the video below, they look painful! The "heel" actually extends from the front with the foot straight down ballet style putting..
Shoes have come a long way from a unitarian piece of foot protection to high fashion and even works of art - or torture depending on the shoe and heel height! What is it about something so simple that has us paying big bucks for designers like Manolo Blahnick and Christian Louboutin?
I have to admit, I never felt I was obsessed with shoes - when I was a teen, I tended to have one pair of flats, one heels, one light or white, one black and that was about it. Since I'm 5 feet 11 without shoes, I never went for the super high heels - 2 to 3 inches were my normal selection. When I was eng..
