This collection of sick studded shoes prove that there’s no better place to have some hardcore hardware accessories than on your feet.

From Swarovskified heels to zebra-striped footwear to studded leather kicks, there’s options for both men and women. With studded shoes, you’re guaranteed to be nothing but a stud.

Implications - The growing acceptance of individualism in mainstream society has allowed subcultures such as the punk and goth movements to bubble up into pop culture.
