If you've ever seen a grizzled punk kicking round in studded combat boots, a witchy woman treading the boards in winklepickers or a cyber kid towering over you in platforms tall enough to make grown men cry you've no doubt been in awe of a pair of Demonia shoes.
Demonia have been kicking around since 1993, bringing their specialty brand of iconic footwear to all flavours of the alternative scene. We here at Tragic are proud to be an Australian stockist, keeping a special hoard of their boots tucked away in our warehouse and sending out dozens of pairs to chunky shoe fiends each week down under and internationally.
Whether you need a chunky pair of sandals to be festival ready & live your Hot Goth Summer, holographic heels for club n festival lewks or the stompiest, blackest, darkest pair of platform boots around, Demonia has you covered!
What is Demonia sizing like?
When you shop for Demonia shoes online, it is important to make sure you get your perfect fit! Demonia shoes are in US sizing, which makes it super easy for Aussie kids as this is the same as Australian sizing! This means that if you're an 8 in your Aussie sneakers you'll be just as comfy in a pair of chunky Demonia 8s. The only exception here is their creepers and ballet flats: these tend to run small so we recommend sizing up to the next size. If you're an Australian or US 8, you would be best suited to a size 9.
Which Demonia shoes do I get?
If you're a newbie to these crazy shoes, the hundreds of styles can be a little intimidating! If you want to dive in with your first pair of platforms, we recommend the Swing 815s: these monsters are our most popular style with knee length plated buckles and a tall wedge that's comfy enough to stomp in all day. They come in both matte and patent black so you can look like a gothic warrior or a cyber assassin! If you're not comfortable with heels, the Damned 318s are a very similar style with an easy to walk in flatform that come in all shades of the holo rainbow!
Another Tragic fave are the Shaker 52 ankle boots: these babies are super versatile and come in white, patent and even rainbow reflective styles to you can live out your unicorn rainbow dreams!
