2K Club - Cierra's Milestone of Reaching 2,000

Cierra is the first ever member of the 2K Club on Soles of Silk.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

With this week's update something very special happened. Cierra, who has been posing for me from the time I began work on this site in 2004, reached the 2,000 photo mark with her Brick Buildings set. It was early in January of 2011 that she passed Madison as the site's most photographed model. And here we are, the last week of 2011 and Cierra has set this milestone too.

When I interviewed Cierra in her introductory interview in 2005, she had this to say, "I know my feet are cute and I've never done this before, but I figured it's worth a try." 

Well, that try sure turned into MANY productive photo shoots and video clips. Without getting into a list of all 32 galleries she has on the site thus far, I'd like to take a look at some of my favorite Cierra shoots.

Cierra's very popular, very teasing, Wu's Feet Links feature set.

Wu's Feet Links Feature Model Set - 2009
From the moment Wu first approached me about doing the site's first feature model set with Carmen on the Blue Jeans & Toes, I've always had some great response from viewers and fans. In 2009 Wu decided on Cierra to represent Soles of Silk in a feature set for the year. I came up with the idea to do the site's first ever Size & Foot Teasing set, which was so popular, I've since done several follow ups to it with other models since.

I had an unforgettable night with Cierra at the Ocean back in 2010.

1 Night at the Ocean: 5 Sets and a Foot Rub
In January 2010 Cierra and I spent the night at a hotel in Ocean City, Md. The main goal was to shoot the Valentine's Day set as the hotel room had a heart shaped hot tub inside. Five total sets and one sweaty foot rub stuck in the middle and I had one of the most productive and fun days of shooting since I began the site. For a complete look at that amazing day, you can see this column, "Timeline: An All Day Shoot with Cierra," from January 2010.

Cierra always wants to step in stuff and squish it.

Food Shoots
Cierra is not only well known for her sweaty feet, but she has this thing for wanting to ALWAYS step her feet in some kind of food. Over the years she's done the following: Cadbury Egg, Blueberry Pie, Watermelon, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Doughnuts w/ Jessie, Trix Cereal, and Blueberry Pancakes.

Cierra had this smirk because she knew her feet were soaked from being in those boots.

Some Super Sweaty Uggs
One of the first real times I noticed how much Cierra's feet sweat was the day I went to her apartment and decided to shoot her wearing a pair of Ugg Boots. At the time I really hated those boots, but they've since grown on me, especially since I got to experience a few of the girl's feet on the site after coming out of them. If you like warm, sweaty feet, then you have to have some kind of appreciation for them. But on the day Cierra did this shoot, I had never felt her feet as warm and moist as they were that day. It really made me take notice of it and boy was she ever embarrassed. She has since embraced it. Don't believe me? She had this to say about her feet and how much they sweat, "It's like a body function I just don't have control of. Sometimes it gets a little out of hand, but I've come to love it."

Cierra has a thing for Converse shoes and has a bunch of different pairs.

Converse, Cereal, & Workouts
When Cierra and I get together for shoots, she tends to do several sets at once. One of those times we got together at a college and shot on some Workout Stations around a walking trail. That shoot turned out great, but when we made way back to her apartment and shot her Converse and Trix Cereal sets, I got two of my most favorite sets that I've ever shot. Yes, two sets, same model, shot back to back at one shoot. Cierra and I must have just been in a grove, but her expressions, the photo quality, the colors... they all just popped.

On the horizon I really hope to see Cierra's photo totals keep climbing and climbing. She deserves all the praise you all give her and she really is a great girl. I am glad to have her and appreciate every thing she's ever done for me with this site. Here's to another 2,000 photos!

Comic Nerd Foot Fantasy Shoots

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

By now you are probably aware that I am a huge comic book fan. When Mindee did her Power Girl & Piggies feature set on Wu's Feet Links and then Jamie did one with Batgirl (Sample 01 / Sample 02), I knew I had the start of an ongoing series on my hands. Eventually Carlin would go on to do a Catwoman themed shoot (Sample 01 / Sample 02), but that has been all that I have published to this point, although there have been, and currently are plans to do more. Lela Beryl even did a set with comic book cards that will be going online soon.

Doing sets done with the sole mates with a comic book theme is one thing, but what if the heroines themselves were real? And what if I could have them in front of my camera for Soles of Silk? Yes, I'm going that nerdy in this blog. I know the girls aren't real, BUT what if they were? What if I could have a handful of the world's super heroines (or super villains) as sole mates? Who would they be? There are a lot of female comic characters out there these so I'm going to limit my picks to a Top 10 Listing starting with...

10 - Ms. Marvel (Marvel Comics)
More of a recent favorite, Ms. Marvel has that brash attitude that I love having on the site. She has that air of confidence about her that would make for some good teasing for sure.


9 - She-Hulk (Marvel Comics)
People are ALWAYS saying we should "go green." Well, I sure never got to play with a pair of green feet, much less take photographs of them - although Charlee's feet did turn green in her very first shoot thanks to popsicles. Anyhow, the She-Hulk comic are so tongue in cheek fun, I can only imagine if she were real, a shoot with this green gal would be quite fun.


8 - Lady Death (Boundless/Avatar Comics)
Lady Death has always oozed sexiness when it comes to her character. With only perhaps Vampirella giving her a run for the money with sexuality, Lady Death would sure bring a little bit of fetish flavor to the site without even taking off a boot or thigh high stocking from her long white legs.


7 - Harley Quinn (DC Comics)
I've been in love with this crazy cat since she debuted on the Batman: Animated Series back when I was in school. I think her antics are awesome and even though she's a bad girl, I think she's got enough good in her to make a foot fetish photo shoot something to remember. And hey, if Mr. J (Joker) has a foot fetish, she'd surely want to do it. Cierra and I have plans to do a Harley Quinn themed set that I'm very much looking forward to.


6 - Mystique (Marvel Comics)
While Mystique isn't my favorite female comic character, I was going to include her in this list at the #1 spot as a gag. Being able to copy anyone she comes in contact with, I could have her be every one of these girls and then some. One girl could do an entire site of hundreds of different heroines and villains. As for the shoots though, I'd know it wasn't the real deal before me, so I decided not to have her in that #1 spot.


5 - Storm (Marvel Comics)
I had to include this dark skinned and light haired beauty on the list. There are not enough black females characters in comics, but Storm sure takes the cake as the most well known. And if worst came to worst, she could make every day a great day to go out and take some photos. Charlee has expressed doing a shoot based off this popular leader of the X-Men.


4 - Psylocke (Marvel Comics)
I have a soft spot for Asians, but much like black women, there isn't a ton of Asian girls in comics (not including Anime and Manga here). Psylocke has always been one of my favorites. Aliza was even supposed to do a shoot with a Psylocke theme to it, but isn't currently shooting. Would be nice to have some martial art feet on the site.


3 - Supergirl (DC Comics)
I know she's supposed to be 17, but when you're 17 for decades in outer space and then a teenager for countless more years in comics, you're not 17 anymore. Anyhow, Supergirl has that youth factor that would sure make for a nice addition with all my other barely legal models who pose for me. Kayleigh was slated to do a Supergirl themed set at one point, but we just never got around to doing it.


2 - Power Girl (DC Comics)
Supergirl from another dimension, Power Girl is the reason I got back into reading comics. It was hard not to put her at the #1 spot for that reason alone. It is the reason why I used her as the set for Mindee's Power Girl & Piggies feature set on Wu's Feet Links though. So having this big breasted, fun loving hero on the site would rock.


1 - Wonder Woman (DC Comics)
As far as female comic characters go, Wonder Woman is the Babe Ruth, Shakespeare, Da Vinci, Michael Jordan, etc. equivalent. You couldn't ask for a bigger female comic character, if she were real, to pose on this site. Plus, I'd love to have a set of big smelly Amazon feet coming fresh out of her trademark red boots in a set. Originally Marcy was supposed to do a Wonder Woman themed set that fell through numerous times. Since then I have asked Aspen to do one, which might actually turn into two sets, but scheduling has been an issue.

Honorable Mentions
Aspen Matthews (Aspen Comics), Batgirl (DC Comics), Grace (Aspen Comics), Poison Ivy (DC Comics), Catwoman (DC Comics), Black Cat (Marvel Comics, X-23 (Marvel Comics), and Zatanna (DC Comics).
