@mynamewasdeleted: Yes those are kind of the same
Several different styles of footwear in this image. The girl on the left is wearing a close approximation of the drawing from your original post. I would never chose to go out for an evening of ass kicking in heels, but if I found myself in heels and needing to kick a little ass, I agree they look to be the nexus point of sexy and functional in the steampunk genre.
i love steampunk ..loved Dishonored, Lady Mechanika... was thinking of checking out Zenescope but the art is such a turn off... never liked the Al Rio type art...
