A type of shoe most commonly worn by punks, ska punks, goths, rockabillies, and pyschobillies. Brothel Creepers can often be seen on the feet of psychobilly bands. Brothel Creepers have a distinct crepe sole which can either be short and discreet or a platform-style.
Traditional Brothel Creepers are usually suede although they are now made of leather, fur, and other materials. Creepers can be styled to look like different types of shoes but maintain the distinct sole.
