Kat Von D loves to leave us in suspense. The goth queen of all goth queens is basically a pro at dropping hints at the most unexpected times and leaving us for months on end to figure out the rest. And that's exactly what happened last year when she teased her upcoming shoe line Von D Shoes

At the time, she provided no real insight, except of course that the shoes would be vegan, affordable, and inclusive. But as time has gone by, we've gotten more and more peaks, and finally, it's looking like the collection is almost here. 

Yesterday, Von D teased the upcoming photoshoot on her page, and gave us a preview of three shoes from the line. Get excited. 

The anticipation for Von D Shoes continues to grow bigger and bigger. 

Since last year, people have eagerly been awaiting the arrival of the vegan clothing collection. Almost immediately, it was made clear that the dramatic shoes would be reminiscent of Kat Von D's own goth queen style with tons of red and black. 

The collection has been in the works for quite a while. 

Though it was first revealed last year, it's been in the works for quite some time before that. The reason? The entire shoe line is 100% vegan and cruelty-free, it also spans shoe sizes 5-12, so those that feel left out for their smaller or larger feet can all take part in the fun. 

Yesterday, Von D was on set for the campaign, and the teaser was nothing short of spectacular. 

"Had an amazing photo shoot yesterday for @vondshoes! We launch this summer!! Here’s some BTS shots of some of my fave looks!@officialmalicemcmunn looking rad as fuck in the “Calavera” bone pumps. Since @vondshoes is proudly made of 100% #vegan materials I think it would be amazing to donate proceeds to some of my favorite animal rights organizations. What are some of your fave organizations I should consider?" Von D said on her Instagram. 

She chronicled it all on her Instagram. 

"How amazing does my fellow vegan sister @sophiaesperanzalook in the @vondshoes “Natacha” heels?! Can’t wait to show you guys the final shots from this look!#vondshoes #comingsoon," she wrote.

Let's just say that the goth shoot is seriously making us even more anxious.

"Here’s one more BTS shot from yesterday’s @VonDshoesphoto shoot with @sophiaesperanzawearing the “Adele” spider web pumps. You can follow @VonDshoesfor launch date announcements, sneak previews, and presale notifications!"

And of course, the day ended with a celebratory selfie. 

You have a lot to celebrate when in just a year you bring a beautiful baby into the world, your cosmetics line grows even bigger, and now you have shoes to add to your extensive resume. Kat Von D with the win once again. 

Yesterday, the Von D Shoes page introduced us to some of the killer heels to come. 

Blind anyone in your way with the Destroyer mega platform in fool’s gold glitter, the brand recommends for this shoe model.

Of course there's a simple-yet-extra red shoe.

Keep it sultry and sweet with the Destroyer mega platform, Von D shoe shares, in foiled red metallic leather. 

And for those folks who can't get by on a simple black pump?

Knock 'em dead with the Destroyer mega platform in black leather. 

And though we appreciate all the love and care that's been put into making this the best, we're ready for it to drop.

We've only seen a bit of the entire collection, and we can't wait to behold what's to come. Though there's no official release date as of yet, we have a feeling with the campaign shoot and social media pages becoming even more active, we'll be able to hold these vegan, gothic pieces of goodness in our hands before we know it.
