Have you ever dreamed of creating custom-made shoes in person? Shoes of Prey has you covered! Not only can you design customized shoes on the Shoes of Prey website, but now you can visit select Nordstrom stores and design your shoes with the help of a shoe stylist. I almost swallowed my gum with excitement when I read about the partnership between Shoes of Prey and Nordstrom. Nordstrom has always been my go-to for my size 11 shoes and is popular amongst tall women since they carry up to a size 13 (and sometimes higher). Guess what? Shoes of Prey offers its styles up to size 15!!
So what exactly does Shoes of Prey offer and how does it work?
- Choose from 12 shoe shapes (ballet flats, stilettos, sandals, wedges, pumps etc.)
- Choose your color (over 170 fabrics to choose from)
- Choose between 5 different widths
- Choose a shoe size up to US15/EU49/UK13.5
- Worldwide shipping (receive your order in 5 weeks or less)
- 365 days to return or request a free redesign
Here’s a look at the online ordering platform:
The online ordering and 365 day guaranteed is great but being able to visit the shoe studio, consult with a shoe stylist, get your hot little hands on swatches of the 170+ fabrics/colors and see samples of actual shoes is even better!!
Here are a few of the shoe designs to choose from:
So far, Shoes of Prey Design Studios have opened at Nordstrom in Seattle and San Francisco. The Fashion Island – Orange County, CA design studio is opening this week which means I’ll be able to go create some custom shoes the next time I go home to visit the fam!!
Future locations include:
Paramus, NJ (opening April 11)
Pentagon City, VA (opening April 25)
Oakbrook, IL (May 9)
Shoes of Prey launched in 2009 in Australia and in 2013, they opened their first brick and mortar locations in Sydney and Bondi Junction. It’s also worth nothing that the SoP website is available in the following languages: Spanish, German, French and Japanese. I’m thrilled to see a company that offers larger sized shoes experience such international growth, and I can’t wait to see what is next for SoP.
Do custom-made shoes appeal to you and have you ever bought a custom-made item? Are you willing to pay more money for a custom-made item?
