Shoes of Prey - Custom Shoe Designs

I learned about this wonderful shoe company from Australia through Michelle Phan.  They are a bit pricey, at least for me, but quite worth it. On their website they have several videos, one including showing the process of making a shoe [design] from scratch. How nifty is that? The basis of this company is you, the customer, are able to design your own shoe based on the many pre-conceptualized ideas that you can mix and match. Make sense? 

All pictures are from the Shoes of Prey gallery where you can purchase designs previous customers have created. Or you can tweak the designs to your liking.

The type of shoes they make are ballet flats, heels, wedges, and ankle boots. You can choose the material to use, such as silk, patent leather, soft leather, glitter--yes glitter--and a few others. Everything is the real deal, too. No fake leather that may scratch the second time you wear it. I think this company would be a great place to finally find your perfect green suede peep toe heel. Oh, I think my heart just skipped a beat, haha.

Ballet Flats:  $180
1.5 - 3.5 inch heels:  $230
4 - 4.5 inch heels:  $280
Ankle boots:  $330

Keep in mind, no matter your design for a ballet flat, the price will remain the same at an even $180. This concept applies to the other styles of shoes as well. The wait time in receiving your shoes is about 5 weeks and shipping is $25 I believe for everyone outside of Australia. Double check on their site, though.
Let me know what sort of design you would go for!
