Shoes of Prey
What It Is
No more scouring the mall or searching endlessly online for the perfect pair of shoes. This Australian-based website puts you in the driver’s seat of creating the shoe of your dreams.
With shoe styles ranging from cute ballet flats to sexy platforms, you’re able to choose from 7 different shoe styles to create a shoe perfect for just about any occassion or outfit. You can adjust the color, toe style, back, and heel height as well as add embellishments like bows and roses. You can also choose the fabric of the shoe, with choices like Italian silk, patent leather, sequins and more. Rounding out the perfect shoe collection could not get any easier!
The design program is fun and very easy to use.
Prices vary depending on shoe style. Starting at $180 for ballet flats; $230 for 1½ to 3½ inch heels, $280 for 4 to 4½ inch heels and $330 for ankle boots. Shipping is just $25 no matter where you ship it or how many pairs of shoes you buy. (We don’t know about you, but that sounds to us like an excuse to buy handfuls!)
Why We’d Use It
Not only is creating your own shoe a lot of fun, but it’s perfect for the hard to fit foot. Shoe sizes range from 2-15 and fit those with narrow, medium and wide feet. Heck, you can even order each shoe in a different size!
Plus, their return policy makes trying their service out nearly worry-free. Don’t like the shoes? You can return them for a full refund, or exchange them for another pair (up to 365 days later, as long as they’re unworn.) If the shoes don’t fit, just ship them back and they’ll remake them free of charge. And if you don’t want to wait to ship them back and forth, just take them to a local shoe repairer and Shoes of Prey will pay for the adjustment!
Having just the right shoe in just the right color could have it’s drawbacks, though. Now, whenever you fall in love with a blouse or a dress at the store and think to yourself, “But what shoes will I wear this with?” you have the perfect answer. (Not that we really needed an excuse to buy it in the first place!) Our credit cards are already terrified.
