56 Notoriously Nerdy Shoes

From 8-Bit Peep Toes to Geeky Sci-Fi Stilettos

— August 25, 2012 — Fashion
With these nerdy shoes on your feet, Fan Expo costumes will look crime-fighter fabulous and gorgeously geeky.

After spending so much time and effort on your intricately detailed costumes, why not complete the outfit with shoes that follow the same nerdy theme? Available in styles for both men and women, ladies and gentlemen can equally enjoy the perks of graphically designed and gamer-themed shoes. With an assortment of styles that include stilettos, sneakers, slip-ons and running shoes, there is no occasion that these kicks will miss out on.

Even if you are not lucky enough to attend the Fan Expo Convention in Toronto, these nerdy shoes are versatile enough to be worn for any situation and if you so choose every day.
