GothicPlus.com is honored to have supplied shoes and boots to American Idol Season 12 contestants. Angie Miller and Kree Harrison have rocked styles by Hades Alternative Footwear and Pleaser USA purchased from online retailer, Gothic Plus for performances on the popular show.
GothicPlus.com got the first call from American Idol women's stylist Nra Kudelkara on April 2, 2013. Nra wanted one of the women finalists to wear the style Raven ankle boots made by Hades Alternative Footwear. GothicPlus.com worked with Hades to get these fabulous boots rushed out to the American Idol stage in time for April 3rd Live Show: "Rock 'n Roll - No Ballads Allowed" with the Final 7 contestants for Season 12. Angie Miller rocked the Raven boots in the show's opening and during her killer performance of the Evanescence hit "Bring Me to Life". Angie's performance was voted one of the top 3 of the night.
The Raven boots have a definite rock star edge with their unique, spinal column 4 inch high chromed heel and 3/4 inch high platform. They have a flaming buckle adjustable strap at top, and lots of silver rivets. Made in eco-friendly black faux leather, they make a definite statement. Angie loved the boots so much, she has worn them for several performances.
Since that first call, American Idol has bought additional styles by Hades as well as Pleaser USA and Ellie Shoes, all brands carried by GothicPlus.com and their sister site, ShoeOodles.com.
Kree Harrison wore the Fascinate 2018 rhinestone encrusted knee high leather boots by Pleaser USA on her April 17, 2013 performance of "She Talks to Angels". This style has a gorgeous rhinestone pattern up the back with a unique, split platform filled to the brim with more rhinestones for true star sparkle. Kree also wore the Fascinate 1011 ankle boots that are just covered in rhinestones with the same, unique split platform heel.
