Yes, I can spell. I really do mean oh my sole!
A little over a month ago I read about this online site called “Shoes of Prey”. As you can imagine, they had me when they included “shoes” in the title. So I thought I would check it out and see what all the fuss was about.
Again I say “Oh My Sole”!
Within a couple of days I had taken the time to sit and create a pair of shoes that I had envisioned in my mind. Yesterday, my dream shoes arrived on my door-step! I’m so excited about how amazing they are that I can’t even wait to put them together with an outfit to show them to you. I had to take pictures as I worked my way into the box!
One thing you should know…this is NOT a paid article. I loved the concept and wanted to check it out both for my passion of shoes and to share openly with you. So my totally amazing, new shoes were bought…by me…at full price. AND, I’m so in love with them that this may be the way I buy most if not all my shoes in the future.
I love the concept of going online, picking a basic style and then customizing it in every way from heel height to what material is used for each part of the shoe and all the shoe accessories that can be added. You know there is something empowering about creating a shoe and knowing that no-one else is going to have the same pair. Well at least in my world there is.
While you are selecting materials a drawing/image of the shoe modifies so you can actually see what you are creating in a 360 degree view.
My Shoes of Prey
A Beautiful Black box from Shoes of Prey
An actual photo of what I hoped was inside
Now these are some serious oxfords!
On Friday of last week, I received an email to let me know my shoes had shipped and the email included a photo. So naturally I became even more excited. Then nervous.
What if they didn’t fit properly or if I didn’t like them?!
On Monday the post office box held a pick-up package slip. I knew it had to be the shoes but I got home too late to get to the post office and had to wait until Tuesday. Tuesday on my way home from work I stopped at the post office, came home, got the camera and began opening the box.
Everything was beautifully packaged and there was an envelope containing a copy of the photo of my shoes.
They are stunning…and they fit!
I modeled them for the Fashion Mister. He thought they were definitely shouting my personality so he has promised to take photos of them and me this weekend.
Right now, I am just over the moon and oh so happy with my sole!
Not to mention, I am dying to know what you all think? Please tell. Would love to hear your styling suggestions.
Pretty sure I will be wearing these to the Friday Shoe-down at Cafe Cornucopia!
