It looks like the creeper comeback tour has finally hit cruising altitude — the suddenly popular shoes have finally gotten the vaunted Hello Kitty treatment. Getting Miley Cyrus and Rihanna to bump your kicks will do wonders, sure, but you haven’t really arrived until you get good with Sanrio’s star. Looks like Sanrio has given the OK to these creepers from T.U.K., and they’re pretty adorable.
In addition to the great white-on-black creeper look, these shoes have a Hello Kitty print that bears the many faces of our favorite cat (we know, we’re still considering her a cat). The variety is very subtle — some bows are red and some bows are pink, and, as always, the expressions on Hello Kitty’s face tend to not change a whole lot. I guess the whole no-mouth thing.
There are some other cute details here, too. We love that they made the D-rings on the shoes into little hearts, showing us how much love goes into all things Hello Kitty. And, like most other shoes from T.U.K., these creepers are vegan-friendly, so none of Hello Kitty’s fellow denizens of the animal kingdom were harmed in the making.
The Hello Kitty Pretty Kitties creepers are available from T.U.K. for $90.
