There has been a lot of talk of the Hellbounds being the 'new' Litas, so I thought I would do a comparison between the two.
The first time I saw the Hellbounds was a photo posted on Dolls Kill's Facebook page, when I first saw it I wasnt planning on getting them because I thought 'It looks a lot like the Lita and I have enough of those already'.
Believe it or not, the deciding factor for me buying my first pair of Hellbounds was when I saw they came with rainbow laces..
So when my Hellbound order arrived and I unboxed them I was suprised. They were HUGE!
I remember when I got my first pair of Litas, I thought they were so big and chunky, now looking back; they seem tiny compared to the Hellbounds.
The Hellbounds are taller than the Litas, both the platform and heels are higher.
The Hellbound also has a chunkier heel; which I think makes it more stable, and the bottom has a lot of grip unlike the Litas.
One thing that I prefer on the Litas over the Hellbounds is the way it laces, I find the rivets on the Hellbounds annoying and the laces often fall off the hooks, with the Lita's the lace goes through a hole (like most lace up shoes) so it is more secure and wont unlace itself (like my hellbounds have done a few times). However I do love the versatility of the changeable laces on the Hellbounds.
So which do I like the best? Im still unsure, obviously I still love my Lita collection, but at the moment I am really loving the Hellbounds, I cant wait to get a couple more colours :)
I have included some photos of the Pink Hellbound next to the Neon Pink Lita below, so you can compare them visually.
Which do you prefer?
