Home Wedding Planning Product Review {Product Review} Bespoke Bridal Shoes from Shoes of Prey (Design your own!)

Shoes of Prey is where DIY Brides can go to design your own bridal shoes, or any type of shoes!

If you’ve been struggling to find the right shoe for your wedding dress or bridal party, I give Shoes of Prey our highest recommendation for perfect shoes, made by you.  The super easy web app allows you to pick from basic shoe styles and then customize the type of heel and materials.  They offer everything from fish scales to animal prints to cute cotton polka dot materials.  Then, you can add decorations like bows and rosettes and lace overlays.

If you’re anything like me, you have a vision in your mind and you won’t rest until you find the shoe you’ve envisioned.  Don’t waste any more time going store to store on a hunt for a shoe that doesn’t exist.  Yes, you will pay more for a custom designed shoe, but the Shoes of Prey designs are still affordable, with an average price of $200 per pair.  Just go straight to Shoes of Prey and design it…now.  It’s completely free to design a style, but I will warn you – the shoe designer app is addicting!

In the past hour, I’ve designed about 5 different shoe styles.  Everything from bridal to basic…here are my designs.  I’m not much for high heels, so my styles are mostly flats or wedges.  Tell me what you think!

There are tons of design inspiration in the Shoes of Prey style gallery.  I made most of my styles by editing styles already in the gallery.  You may find something that is already perfect, or you may want to add a very small change to make it your own style, shorten the heel, make it a peep-toe style, or add a rosette.  The choice is yours, and that’s the fun of it!  Once you get the hang of how the design app works, you’ll be amazed with what you can create.  There are virtually no limits to what you can make.

These are truly DIY shoe designs.  Ready? Go! http://www.shoesofprey.com

If you skip the gallery and dive head first into designing your own shoe, you’ll be presented with a choice of basic styles to start the process: sandal, ballet slippers, flat oxfords, basic heels, gladiator heels, party heels, heeled oxfords, wedge heels, and ankle boots.  Once you pick the style to start with, you will be able to customize every inch of the shoe style.  You can add special notes to the order such to ask for a wide or narrow width.

The thing that sold me was the feedback from real brides who created their bridal shoes at Shoes of Prey.  One bride said her shoes were comfortable enough for her to wear them all day!  Imagine that!  I’m also a bit leary of ordering any shoes online because I have hard-to-fit feet; however, Shoes of Prey has a refund policy that takes all your worries away.  You can return your shoes for any reason.  So, there is absolutely no risk involved with this process.  These two points – good reviews and easy returns – are a big reason why I’m so excited to talk about this company.  Shoes of Prey rocks!

Update : I received my custom designed sandals from Shoes of Prey in a beautiful, ribbon-wrapped package.   When I unwrapped my shoes, I was really impressed!  The workmanship, quality, colors, fit, and construction are spot on.  I even ordered mine in a wide width (you have to put this in the notes/comments when ordering), and they’re perfect.  I can’t wait to design my next pair!
