Custom Shoe Design With Shoes of Prey
If you know me, then you know I am a self-proclaimed (actually, many have told me this!) shoe addict. Last time I counted, I had over a hundred pairs. Since we moved into our new house a few years ago I’ve tried to regularly clean them out, take inventory of what I’m no longer wearing, and donate what I can. The only problem is that I then take these moments as an opportunity to replace those I’ve donated with brand new pair! A great pair of shoes will always make you feel good, add a pep in your step, and boost your confidence. I’m always looking for unique items that are great quality at a reasonable price point, so when Shoes of Prey approached me about a partnership it was an immediate “yes.”
While I own a lot of shoes (and love to buy them) acquiring each pair wasn’t so straight forward. I’ve always had wide feet that are surprisingly long for my height. While I measure at 5’4ish” tall, I wear a size 9-9.5 shoe that can’t always fit standard widths. When shopping online I usually have to buy several versions of the style I want in order to find the right fit, as some brands are more narrow or short than others. Shoes of Prey is the holy grail of shoe brands for people with special sizes because they offer a true-to-size fit, with detailed size charts, and extended sizes US 2 to 15 in Narrow, Wide and Extra Wide.

In addition to all of these options, they also offer custom shoe designs! In just a few seconds I was able to create these beautiful white mules and even add a custom inscription with “lolo russell” on the interior sole. I started with the “Alesia” 100mm in White Nappa Leather, then customized it by adding the “Slim Block” heel and beige sole. They shipped quickly and turned out just as wonderful as I imagined. The leather is soft and supple, the perfect shade of white, and very comfortable. Shoes of Prey even included a pack of padded insoles in case you need extra cushion and plenty of care information.
There’s something to be said about personalizing items in your closet. It instantly makes them feel luxurious! Wearing these shoes is a treat and I know they will go with so many outfits year-round. You can create your own custom design, from the ground-up or by modifying an existing style, on shoesofprey.com and receive a free inscription, valued at $49, with code LOLORUSSELL at checkout. You can add your name, like I did, an inspirational quote, or maybe a special note to motivate you each time you slip them on. The design options for your shoes are virtually endless!
I hope you enjoyed learning more about Shoes of Prey and will create your own custom pair with them soon!
