DeviantART user batman-and-bananas created an awesome steampunk Chell (a character from the video game, Portal) cosplay that includes these amazing boots.

Instead of the arch to minimise falling damage, I went for giant springs as a technology replacement more suited to the Steampunk design and historical era.
These started as two pairs of shoes, one cheap pair of black pleather boots and an old pair of canvas shoes. The heel ‘spring’ is actually plastic tubing as I could screw this straight into the heel to secure it firmly (plus a lot more sensible to walk in).
