The former was probably true for jewelry and shoe designer Nixxi Rose when she came up with this series of to-die-for footwear featuring the likes of the previously seen Iron Shoes (inspired by the hit show Game of Thrones) and the Krueger Heels (which were inspired by – you guessed it – Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger.)
