Burlesque Blue - Boots - Almost made to measure

Search as i may for a suitable Christmas & New Year greeting i discovered this amazing fact about Burlesque Blue Boots.

Did you know that when you order a pair of boots from them they ask for your precise measurements plus your shoe size and you end up with your new boots fitting you as all quality footwear should.

My compliments to this company for this bold move as it's bound to fuel the shopping war between the other quality shoe and boot makers that still exist. Well, i can hope anyway.

Hope that all of my readers had a superb Christmas and that 2010 will be the year where all of your dreams come true.

As an after thought i thought i'd show a few of my favorite shoes obtainable from LA Piazza in Germany.

Paris - Part Two, Rubber & High Heels

As i mentioned in Part One of my visit to Paris it was really great to be able to satisfy all of my particular nuances re what is my fetish. The pictures are of a little known Fetish Store in Paris called PHYLEA run by a charismatic parisian called Herve, pictured below.

The shop is located at 64 rue Quincampoix, 75004 Paris, Tel 01 42 76 01 80
Metro : Rambuteau or Hôtel de Ville
Open - Monday to Saturday 10.30am to 8pm


Opened in 1989, Phylea was and still is the first fetish boutique to combine elegance, haute couture and fantasy. It is an institution, well known by Parisians as the place to shop for clothes you’ve always desired secretly in your dreams. 

Phylea is the ancient Egyptian goddess of love, giving the shop its name, and it is completely dedicated to love and imagination. 


Although i do not have any pictures (silly me) of the footwear that he sells he had on display quite a few pairs of the most luxurious soft leather Knee & Thigh boots.


The deal is that he takes your measurements and for the cost of approximately EUR500 for knee boots and to a maximum of EUR1000 for Thigh boots you can have a custom made boot in any length and heel height that you wish for. 


Latex wear on offer include designs by Armory, Ectomorph & Bondinage.Plus a whole load of other exclusive rarely heard of designers. When and if you're ever in Paris a visit to this shop is a must.

Estress High Heels - Spain

Being a creature of habit i regularly stumble across items of interest that i feel important enough to tell you about. Yesterday whilst writing part one of my trip to Paris, France, not Texas or a small hamlet near Holmfirth in the UK i was drawn to an ebay shop promoting a little known Spanish Shoe designer. 

The shop in question is calleAntonio Camino-Omano High Heels and from what i can figure out Gary Lane is the chap who runs this ebay shop and is the English language retailer for Estres Modes, an Alicante (Spain) based footwear designer. 

The Estres Modes website whilst not very pretty or all that easy to navigate is nevertheless functional and is available in English, French and Spanish. 

What attracted me to this manufacturer are the kind of footwear he produces but i can't help wondering of the association between him and Expedicion Creativa in Mijas Costa (Spain) since some of the footwear pictures are almost identical but in the case of this shoe, exactly the same.

Having said that he does produce some very unique designs of footwear rarely seen elsewhere.
Don't take my word for it........check it out for yourself.


Also discovered here is a link to a Spanish Forum all about High Heels. As it's in Spanish i have no idea as to it's validity except to say that it links back to Estress Heels.

Paris in 4 Parts - Part One

For those of you who have been following my Fetish lifestyle for any length of time will be aware of my 3 greatest passions and as i sometimes fail in explaining everything in detail i thought i'd note them down for you so as not to forget.
1. Latex / Rubber - Call it what you may but this material is the kind of stuff i believe is one of mans' greatest fashion achievement and one of my passions.
2. Hand made high heel footwear - My favourites being made entirely of leather, with a single sole and a 6 or 7 inch stiletto heel.
3. Tight laced corsetry - Due to the length of my upper body i find it extremely difficult finding an over bust corset to fit me properly so until i come into stacks of cash i'm stuck with off the peg under-bust corsets and waist cinched corset belts, tighter the better but with a preference for 22 to 26 inch lacing depending on many factors.

Having just returned from Paris following an invitation from The Demonia Fetish shop to attend their yearly party extravaganza i thought that i would break the blog into 4 parts as every one of my passions was satisfied in just 3 days and 3 nights with the 4th being one of sleep and long journey home.

Although not a fetish as such whilst in Paris i along with Duiveltje and his Girlfriend Florence stumbled across an interesting underground Art Exhibition, some pics below.

Quality Footwear - Bananashoes

Yesterday i received a newsletter from a company called BananaShoes who for a while a few years ago sold quality hand made leather shoes from Leatherworks of London. For some inexplicable reason they decided to stop retailing their product but finally a new designer/manufacturer has appeared on the scene in the form of Fabulously Fetish and this is the company who are working with Bananshoes to both market and sell their exciting new product range.

The mailout i received was this



The prices on the Bananashoes site are almost the same as on the Fabulously fetish site but good to know that there's now a competitor to Leatherworks.

For more information on Fabulously fetish have a read of their about us tab as it makes interesting reading as you soon see the connection with Leatherworks in times gone by.

If you're concerned about quality, fear not as i bought a pair of stunning brown crock leather open toe sling backs with red soles and a 6" heel and was quite surprised at just how comfortable they are.  This is a pic of the actual shoes i bought. If you look closely you will see that they were originally made for the American market as the size shown is a US10 and as UK8 is the same size, well you get the picture.

I can dream

Just going through some recent posts and i happened upon these gorgeous thighboots. Don't they look fabulous?

Imagine me walking around wearing these boots. I know i can but can you?

I love the white lacing don't you? I'm hazarding a guess at the heel height on me but judging by the styling they look devine.

I'm not going naked so any preference for what i wear? I'm thinking something figure flattering, so come on guys lets have some ideas.

Gummi Geluste - Exlusive Latex Play Party


Upon waking up last Saturday I wondered what I should do that evening, but as I hadn't pre arranged anything I wondered if it was conceivably possible to arrange something interesting to do within a short space of time.

Following a couple of sms's, a phone call and an email or two it was all arranged and within a couple of hours i was on my way to Eindhoven and a chinese meal with Katja Lynx and Badpakje before dressing and finally a road trip to Koln, Germany for the party we'd all put on our list of events to attend sooner rather than later.



The party in question is one of perhaps 2 or 3 (in Mainland Europe) that you would call a specialist Rubber party and the one which we went to is called Gummi Geluste.  The website is unfortunately in German but is very easy to translate by using a free translation tool like FreeTranslation.com

Just the words Gummi Gelueste evoke thoughts of rubber decadence and if anyone saw me drooling and licking my lips there was good reason.

Imagine if you will a party where everyone in attendance is wearing rubber and a fairly even mix of all genders and persuasions. If you're of a mind to dance at this party then this party may not be for you as activities taking place are geared toward an enjoyment of what is Rubber wear and the things we like to do dressed in our most precious of materials.

If you didn't know what you were looking for upon arriving in the area you would have missed it for the venue was tucked away at the back of a building and with a very small hand written sign over a door buzzer. Upon entering we were greeted by a really nice german guy called Marc P (the organizer and founder) and is proud of the fact that the party had with this event reached edition 30, a milestone and a testament to a nation of rubberists.


The entrance fee at EUR 45.00 was well spent as it included cloakroom, toilet, cold buffet and all drinks. The buffet itself wasn't a meagre affair either as i counted around 30 different snacks and of a very high standard too. Drinks on offer were plentiful and of great variety including wine, beer, spirits, soft drinks and coffee.

Although not a massive location it was very nicely adorned and decorated with all manner of BDSM equipment & furniture with many opportunities to play and do your thing. One thing i've come to almost expect from such parties is the plethora of lecherous wankers drooling over your intimate action and i was pleasantly surprised to see that if you wanted some privacy from such beings you could have it. At the same time there was also an area where you could create your own impromptu show on a stage within view of the bar area.


The party was set up for attendees to do as they wished with rooms for play, relaxation and other more intimate forms of rubber fun with a small but functional dark room. It was nice to experience a party without an agenda or timetable and where the only stimulants were visual, alcoholic or a direct association with what is a Rubber fetish.

I for one will definitely be heading back to Koln to experience this party in the future and would urge all rubberists to do the same.

The next party is scheduled for early February 2010. If you're going to go please make sure you make an early reservation.
