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 has been kicking around since 1993, bringing their unique brand of iconic footwear to all flavours of the alternative scene. All of their styles come with vegan options, made with high-quality materials such as PU and vinyl that are easy to maintain, clean and built to last for years of regular wear. We here at Tragic are proud to be an Australian stockist, keeping a special hoard of their most popular styles tucked away in our warehouse and sending out dozens of pairs to chunky shoe fiends each week in Australia and internationally.
Our pre-order system ensures super fast delivery: we pay extra for express shipping to ensure you get your shoes in time for your event. Shoes also qualify for free standard shipping in Australia and New Zealand! We also offer buy now pay later options Afterpay, Zip, Openpay, Humm, Klarna, Laybuy and Sezzle so you can spoil yourself on a budget.
Edgy boots for alternative peeps of every gender are Demonia's bread and butter. Their women's, men's and unisex ranges cater to all subcultures for every occasion so Tradgoths, punks, metalheads, rivetheads, pastel goths, emos, e-girls, witches and rockers can find something they like.
Ankle boots are a great staple pair to keep in your wardrobe for everyday outfits and even to wear in summer. They're great for showing off stockings and pantyhose (or just those sexy legs of yours!) Our fave all rounder ankle boots have to be the CAMEL-203 platforms: They come in every shade and material you can think of, including velvet, patent, holographic pastel pink and even shining rainbow!
Knee-high boots are a great option for badass outfits and are ideal for winter. You can keep it simple with stretch vegan leather or lace-ups, or get an extra punk edge with buckles and spikes. Some of our faves include the TRASHVILLE series: an all-purpose flatform boots and comes in lace-up or buckled versions, the TORMENT high heel boots and the CHARADE chunky goth boots.
If you want to create a dramatic street look or take your sexy level to the max, get extra with a pair of thigh-high boots! The CAMEL-300 and EMILY-375 boots are best sellers, the former lacing up with a chunky platform and the latter having a more modest flatform for wearing out every day.
If you're after a specific style inspo, Steampunk and Victorian lovers can't go wrong with the GLAM, TESLA or VIVIKA series'. Punks can go totally wild with combat style RANGER, RIOT and BOLT boots. Cosplayers can get a kick out of the pastel goth VIOLET series,
Sometimes you're just not in the mood for boots, especially during summer! If these aren't your style Demonia also offers an extensive range of heels, wedges, sandals, brothel creepers, sneakers and ballet flats. Demonia's platforms are chunky but super light, making them super easy to walk in and wear comfortably every day.
For summer you can't go wrong with a pair of sandals: the FUNN and FLIP slides are your traditional beach sandals, if by traditional you mean super tall, covered in bats or studs and inspired by grunge trends of the 90's. For something a little dressier, you can try strappy wedges such as the PACE-33 or CAMEL-102 platform sandals which are inspired by retro trends.
Mary Janes are a super versatile and classic style that can be easily dressed up with socks and stockings. Our fave Mary Janes are the SPRITE-02 and CAMEL-103 platforms for extra Wednesday Addams vibes! Corpgoths can dress up with the DOLLY series of Mary Jane heels with a modest platform for towering over the office.
If you're a little more casual or even feel like the missing 6th spice girl, you should totally try Demonia's platform sneakers. The STOMP-08 wedge sneakers come in white and black and look sporty AF. The NEPTUNE cyber sneakers come finished in holographic glitter and studs for crazy futuristic looks. For something a little more chill for the skater kid in you, try out one of the super comfy SNEEKER styles!
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.
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 is the SHAKER-52 ankle boots: these babies are super versatile and come in white, patent and even rainbow reflective styles so you can live out your unicorn rainbow dreams!
