I have a habit of wanting a certain design of shoe and never being able to find it, it usually drives whoever I am shopping with mad. But you know, the “shoes make or break the outfit” has also been my rule, or maybe it’s just my excuse for more shoes.
Shoes Of Prey is an ingenious Australian website that offers a bespoke shoe service.
Unlike other custom shoe designers, the whole process with Shoes Of Prey is done online.
You can choose leather types (snakeskin to soft leather and many, many options in between), decorations (soft rosettes to fancy bows) the heel height, the toe shape, the back of the shoe and even down to the colour (red fur anyone?). The shoe designer is so easy to use too- very much like a virtual colouring in project!
Shoes Of Prey have made everything very easy, they have a great return policy and will even discuss sizes and widths with you to ensure even the most nervous customer has her mind put at ease. Once your shoe is designed you can embed the picture on your website or blog or send the link to a friend.
Jodi, along with husband Michael and friend Mike are the brains behind the business with all of the shoes being handmade and shipping to most countries (including the USA).
The site is brand new and they’ll be adding new fabrics and styles as time goes by (I’m hoping for flats perhaps and maybe feathers, silks, perhaps even jeweled decorations!) It’s so easy to spend hours fiddling around with shoe designs (as I clearly have).
