whitney shoes

MoonSugar, the UK/American fashion retailer curated by designers with a taste for the darkside, have today launched a pair of shoes that will enable you to conquer the world.

Whitney Wild Show Girl Heels are named after Hall Of Heavy Metal co-presenter Whitney Alyson Ribbins and completely based on the footwear Whitney wore on the Main Stage at Wacken Open Air last month when Ross The Boss was presented with the very first Global Metal Ambassador Award.

Heel And Kill!

Whitney told MetalTalk:

"Shoes have been my favourite fashion accessory since I was three-years-old and fashion has remained a huge influence since.

"I have always loved the connection between certain music eras and those times' iconic fashion statements so to have Moonsugar name a pair of shoes after me that are symbolic of today's rock and Metal scene means so much to me.

"It's an enormous privilege to provide inspiration and empower people and I am so grateful to Moonsugar for recognising the demand and acting on it."

Heels Of Fire

Moonsugar co-owner Kara-Jay Matthews told us:

"MoonSugar is the home for the alternative soul. It's about showcasing diversity through style and fashion. Let the outside you be a reflection of your true inner you. Don't hide the madness.

"The Whitney Wild Show Girl Heels truly reflect this. They are bold, proud and loud. When wearing heels we always say 'Go High or Go Home' and at 8cm and up, they really are super high and designed and made for the real show girls.

"Named after a real show girl, Whitney Ribbins. If anyone has seen this mad soul on stage at Wacken Festival, or parading around backstage owning her style, look and herself you would know these shoes fit the bill perfectly. Whitney is not afraid to be herself and she makes the world more of a special place.

"Give a girl the Whitney Wild Shoe Girl Heels and she will be able to conquer the world."

Whitney Wild Shoe Girl Heels are available from Moonsugar right here and are already selling fast.

The Gods Made Heels Of Metal




Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.


Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.

Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.


MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.


Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
