Walk into my closet and you’ll see that I’m obsessed with shoes. I have about ten pairs of black boots alone. One day a friend asked, “Why do you need so many pairs of black boots, wouldn’t one suffice?”
I starred at her dumbfounded. Of course one pair would not fit all my moods and outfits. I need short ankle black boots, mid-calf boots, knee-high boots, some combat style, some more Victorian. No girl can have enough black boots.
So when deciding what to name my shoe gallery for the magazine, I did a little research.
A “fiend” has two definitions: 1) a demon or devil; 2) a person who is obsessed about something.
Considering we are Dark Souls and we are obsessed with shoes, it seems only fitting to title the shoe gallery, “Shoe Fiends.”

“They went into my closets looking for skeletons, but thank God, all they found were shoes, beautiful shoes.”
Every Goth needs their black boots. Sometimes they are the oldest pair you find at a second-hand store for $10. Other times we save for months for that perfect pair we saw online. No matter what the case, we all have our favorite pair of boots.
