Shoes of Prey is a fabulous website where women can design their perfect shoes online. The label was founded in Sydney in 2009 by Jodie Fox and now includes staff in China, Japan and England. In September 2012, Shoes of Prey made its New York Fashion Week catwalk debut, collaborating with three stunning up and coming design talents: Gretchen Jones, Jonathan Simkhai and Mandy Coon.
At Shoesofprey.com shoppers can choose from 12 shoe shapes ballet flats, mid heels, high heels, extra high heels, flat sandals, heeled sandals, gladiators, party heels, flat oxfords, heeled oxfords, ankle boots and wedge heels which can all be customised to offer a trillion variations.
There is no need to compromise on colour, fabric, heel height, toe, embellishments, shape… or well, anything at all. They will make your design just as you intended it to be. And, they don’t have a special set of ‘wedding prices’, they want you to enjoy custom made shoes that will be totally right for you without costing the earth.
There is a gorgeous range of 172 materials and fabrics for you to play with including ranges of Italian Silk, shiny calfskin leathers, patent leather, snakeskin, fishskin, glitter, lace, cotton in a range of colours including gold and silver sequins. Embellishments for bridal shoes also include silk rosettes, diamantes and bows.
Once you submit your design, the expert craftsmen then make your shoes to measure, swaddle them in a soft dust bag and crisp new box, and ship them to your waiting feet.
The time it takes from order to delivery is approximately 5 weeks, however they recommend that for a wedding you order your shoes 11 weeks in advance.
If your shoes don’t fit they will remake or alter them for you free of charge, they guarantee you’ll love the shoes, or your money back.
I think this is a great way to have some fun on your wedding day, inject some colour and really show off your personality. So what are you waiting for – check out the website and get designing!
