T.U.K. brand shoes are heavily influenced by punk and other underground music and art scenes. Fans include Green Day, the Horrorpops and Sum 41. T.U.K. has been in business for more than 20 years and is based in southern California. The shoes, from creepers to boots to Mary Janes, platforms and pumps, are sturdy enough for the mosh pit and fiercely styled. They're also affordable, with most styles, as of March 2011, costing less than $100.
If you're in a band, T.U.K. shoes are what you'll want to wear on stage. If you're a fan, you'll want to wear them to the show. Any of the accoutrements of the rock 'n' roll look go well with these shoe styles -- leather pants and belts, skinny jeans, band tees, bondage pants, animal prints, plaids and fishnets.
T.U.K. shoes are quintessential clubwear. Spice up a night of dancing by pairing them with a minidress and striped tights. Goth and fetish club looks complement T.U.K shoes nicely, so break out your PVC and latex outfits, your corsets, your velvet and lace.
If you want to add bite to a vintage outfit, accessorize with a pair of T.U.K.s. Whether underneath a swing dress, a poodle or pencil skirt or a steampunk ballgown, you'll instantly turn on the bad girl vibe.
Yes, you can even wear your T.U.K. shoes to the prom. This look works best if your dress is a bit retro or rockabilly inspired, or if you add a dash of punk rock to your hair or accessories. So if you were planning on, say, dyeing your hair blue or wearing it in a liberty-spiked Mohawk, T.U.K. shoes are your best friend.
