Figgie Shoes became an offbeat sponsor after they were recommended to us by a reader — Naomi wrote us and said "I love this website and I thought this would be another neat way for an offbeat bride to express her quirky side!" And when we clicked over to the website, we went from OMG to OMGer as we looked through all the vibrant custom shoe porn. We just knew that all y'all were gonna love them too.
Keep peeping to not only get some MAJOR inspiration, bu find out how YOU can get your hands on a pair of custom wedding shoes. Plus, who doesn't love a custom shoe porn overload?
Figgie Shoes's designer Deborah offers custom, hand-painted wedding shoes, featuring personalized items — locations, dates, names, wedding themes (almost anything goes!) — to create your own shoes. Here's how the process works:
- Choose your wedding shoes. (Figgie Shoes will even order them for you so you don't have to pay extra for shipping.)
- Make a list of items, people, or places that are meaningful to you, or talk to Deborah about creating a unique pattern to set off an already glamorous pair of shoes.
- Now, get creative! Add a few touches that show off the glamour queen in you. Add color with ink or jewels, metallics, sequins, rhinestones — just about anything you like!
- Receive amazing wedding shoes.
ANY style shoe can be painted, so long as the material is not patent leather. Synthetic leather shoes are the best choice, but other fabric (satin, etc) can be painted as well. Heel height, colour of the shoe, style — totally up to you! Let's check out what some past offbeat brides have had done…
Ooh and guess what — Figgie Shoes doesn't just do shoes for girls…
And so can the tiny members of your bridal party. (Insert collective awwwwwwwww here.) If you do decide to get custom shoes for your wedding party you also get a discount. In fact, there are several discounts to be had…
Bottom line — Figgie Shoes are ah-freaking-mazing. So, what will YOU come up with?
