Halloween is a time to be really extra: whether you've cultivated a show stopping costume for a party with friends, gearing up for extravagant Beltane festivities or just raiding the Halloween aisle because mainstream stores are FINALLY stocking goth-friendly decor. A lot of people feel that they can only really "let loose" in terms of fashion because of Halloween but we spooky peeps know this just isn't true-the horror show runs all year long, baby!
At Tragic HQ, our fave way to be extra on the daily is by stomping around in ridiculous footwear. Our busy packers even kit up in platform sneakers while wrapping your goodies-being abnormally tall *totally* speeds up the process dontcha know?
We took a quick squiz and quiz around the warehouse and asked our busy bees what their fave pair of shoes are. Check 'em out below to get to know our team a little and maybe even get some shoe inspiration!
