a little love…

{rouge note: I know this is totally off topic, but I just can’t help myself. Last week was design your own fabrics, this week is design your own shoes. How incredible is that?!? A little love on Valentine’s day, I’d say! (thanks again www.springwise.com). I’ll be back next week with more from the home staging and redesign world, but until then…get to work on creating your dreamy shoes! I’m thinking red…}

Sydney-based online shoe retailer Shoes of Prey (www.shoesofprey.com) is directing the design-your-own trend towards stylish, custom-made women’s shoes.

Launched in October, Shoes of Prey’s simple, online design tool puts bespoke shoes just a few clicks away for women wanting to design their dream shoes and have them hand-crafted to match their requirements. Customers choose the style, heel type, heel height, adornments and colours, and select from raw materials including calf skin, snake skin, fish skin, silk and more, which makes for a near infinite number of possible combinations.
Prices range from AUD 195 for ballet flats to AUD 300 for 4½-inch heels. International shipping is available, and the shoes take about six weeks to arrive. The service is backed by a generous returns policy which guarantees that if the shoes don’t fit, Shoes of Prey will remake them until they do; and if the customer doesn’t like the design, they can send the shoes back for a full refund or have a new design made for them free of charge.
