It’s a Shoe-In


Often you see a pair of shoes you wish were in a different hue, material or heel height. So, why not have shoes made just the way you want them to be – and have them delivered to you?

At ShoesofPrey, it will cost you between US$140 (for sandals) and US$330 (for ankle boots) to build a pair of customised footwear.

You start with picking a shoe style out of the 16 available – sandals, ballet flats, stilettos, pumps or booties.

After that, you can let your imagination run wild with the material, colour and decoration.

It is advisable to have a rough sketch before building the shoes online or else you will spend hours just trying out the different combinations.

Deciding on the material and the colour alone can set you back some time or make you think that perhaps you need to build more than one pair.

Cork, cotton, leather, suede, glitter, sequins, pony, snakeskin, silk.

Stripes, polka dots, floral, zebra print, and hues from gold to black.

And as icing on the cake, you can pick accents such as trimmings, rosettes and bows.

Shoes of Prey promises that if your shoes do not fit, it will remake them for free.

Other websites where you can buy customised shoes are milk & honey, TheShoeDesignStudio, AtelierShoes and NinaShoes.

Nina Shoes is focused on weddings, offering customisation of anything bridal – from shoes to veils. Brides can also create their own jewellery studded with Swarovski crystals.

Prices of the shoes on the abovementioned websites vary.
