I remember a couple of years ago, I came across some websites that allowed users to design your own shirt and leather bags. Finally, in Singapore, we ladies can let our imagination run wild and design our very own coveted shoes with The Shoe Design Studio.

Here’s the pair of shoes that I designed. Blue Leather + Teal Patent + Pink Nubuck + Black Trimming = MsGlitzy’s Special Shoes!

The Design Studio application is pretty easy to use, and be prepared to spend a lot of time there deliberating on your design. There were numerous shoe designs that you could start with – pumps, sandals, T-strap etc. You could also choose the type of heels ranging from 2.5 inches to 4 inches, as well as the specific heel design.

Subsequently, you will be guided to decide on the colours and materials of the different parts of your shoes. There is quite a good selection to choose from – fabric, leather, ponyhair and lace, just to name a few. True to the spirit of custom-made shoes, you are required to draw the outline of your feet with specific instructions on measurements, and The Shoe Design Studio will manufacture them to the right fit!

Each pair of made-to-measure shoes cost S$230, and if you use premium material in your design, the price would be about S$250.

One tip to share here, try to make use of the “Quick Chat” function on the website to discuss with the designer about your options. If you have something specific in mind, your dream design might still be attainable although it is not available on the template at the Design Studio application.

Back to my colour block shoes, the material used looks decent and the fit is perfect. These shoes are manufactured in Singapore and each order takes about 3 weeks to make and deliver to your doorstep.

The downside? What you see on the computer screen might differ slightly from what you get in real life.

The design I created on the application, which varied slightly from the shoes in real life. The Teal portion looked more green on the web, but was Baby Blue in real life.

Nonetheless, I am still pretty delighted with the outcome. Now, moving on to the next first world problem – which outfits to go with my new pair of shoes?
