Shoe Talk: How to customize a pair of your own

December 8, 2017 19 Comments

Don’t you ever dreamed about designing your own shoes? or at least customize a pair of your own so you can have the right height of the heels and feel comfortable to walk your day with it all day long? It would be a lie if you tell me that thought have never came across your mind! Guess what, this Christmas you wish will become true! Shoes of Prey would not only let you to design your own shoes, but you can customize every thing down to every little detail. It’s not just heels that you can design for yourself, they also offer design your own for boots, flats, mules, and sneakers. How amazing is that! Get online right now, and treat yourself a pair of two for this Christmas!


Where to start?

Well, first you should consider if you are designing something for a particular occasion? For me, I was looking of a pair to match with my beautiful elegant gown for Diner en Blanc, so I knew I need to pick a pair of white heels that needs to look elegant, and be comfortable, so I will be on my feet a lot on that night. Aslo I need something to have a visual effect to elongate my legs! So I browsed around on their lookbook page and picked a pair of sandals to start with.


A few things you should consider when designing your own pair after you made you decision on the types.

– What is the main colour that your want? or any colour combo that you want to try out?
– What is your ideal heel height? Whether you want a comfortable pair of heels or something stunning and gives the WOW factor.
– How much support do you want from your heels? if you are going for a sexy look then Stiletto it is, and if you want something comfortable, then maybe you should shop around in the blocks or wedges department.
– Where are you going to wear them and for what occasion? if you are making a pair of work, then it needs to be something comfortable and look professional. If you it’s something for going out, maybe you can add on the extra strips on for provide some additional supports.
– Make it more personal? You can use have your own personal inscription on your shoes!!! Use ‘FOREVERJESSIE’ to get your free inscription at your next order. Normally they cost additional USD75 (AUD100).


What to expect?

From the bottom of my heart, Shoes of Prey went far beyond my expectations. From the day I submitted my order online till the day I arrived my door step in Hong Kong. It took less than 7 calendar days. It even comes with a comfortable kit to provide extra comfortableness. How sweet!

After-all, comfortableness is the key! It doesn’t matter how pretty you shoes are, they are no use if your foot are going to be pain and you going to walk around in awkward movements. So know your style, know your foot, and make something practical and pretty for yourself!

    I’ve heard about Shoes of Prey for a while now and what kind of woman wouldn’t want to design their own shoes!
    I definitely agree with you that there is no point having a beautiful pair of shoes that are uncomfortable and painful to walk in.
    I’ve been down that road before.
    I would love to design my own pair of shoes comfort would be key and making them unique would be really cool.
    I didn’t know that you can also design your own sneakers that’s really cool .

    I love Shoes of Prey! I had a chance to design my own shoes with them as well and the designing process is not only fun but also super easy. I love these wedge heels you designed. The white is so chic and I love a great pair of white shoes. The wedge heel is great because there’s extra cushion that a stiletto so easier to walk. These look fab on you and I love how you paired them with socks as well. I can’t wait to design another pair of shoes with them! xoxo, Christine

    I’ve watched them grow from when they first started and loved being able to customise my own heel height! Would be awesome if they could design a shoe where you could also change the heels of the shoe yourself too – stiletto to block heels.

    Loveeee the way you’ve worn these too babe with the netted socks underneath!

    Shoe of Prey is always one of my favorites. The idea in general of being able to customize your own shoes is wonderful! Then to add, they have a huge selection and pre-made designs as well! They’re always updating and getting new chic styles in. I really love that I was able to add my name to all of mine! That’s one of my favorite parts! TRUE CUSTOMIZATION! Perfect for a gift idea! I mean who wouldn’t want this as a gift?!

    I have been wanting a service like this for so long! I always have so much trouble finding shoes I like online (or even in stores), so I am so grateful for Shoes of Prey. It’s so convenient that you can customize every detail of your shoes. I will definitely be shopping through them for my holiday outfits!
