SHOES | OF PREY

October 16, 2017

For those of you that don’t already know this about me, I love shoes. I don’t discriminate and love them all equally. From sneakers, to mules, to boots, to heels, I can’t get enough of them. But it’s not always easy finding the right shoe for my small feet (I wear a size US 5 or 35 and sometimes up to a US 6 or 36). Most brands typically carry only one or two pairs in my size of each style and they usually run out. Forget about finding my size during a sale either. So when I discovered Shoes of Prey I was beyond ecstatic. Not only do they carry so many amazing styles of shoes, they can be customized (yes you design them yourself), and they are so affordable! Shoes of Prey lets you channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw and design shoes the way you want them from style, to fabric, to embellishments, to even a personal inscription. To see how they make your design come to life, check out this quick clip here. The best part of this custom design process is that it ships within two weeks so you don’t even have to wait long to strut in your original designed shoes!

With fall upon us and winter quickly approaching, I wanted shoes that I could wear for colder weather (think closed toed shoes). I couldn’t decide between a pair of boots and slingbacks so I got them both.

The process for designing your shoe is so easy!

  1. Select the style or body of shoe you want (i.e. boots, flats, mules, etc.)
  2. Pick your size (based on the two pairs I ordered, these are pretty true to size)
  3. Options for toe types (such as rounded, cap toe, pointy, etc.)
  4. Selections for heel types
  5. Choose the main fabric for your shoe from leathers, fabric, vegan leather, etc.
  6. You can pick another color and fabric for your shoe too (as I did with my boots and cap-toe slingbacks)
  7. Other options you can choose from are trim, color of the inside of the shoe, heel color, etc.
  8. A fun and personalized feature includes writing an inscription in your shoe (use code: DAILYKONGFIDENCE for a free inscription)

I’ve been wanting a pair of white boots for fall but I wasn’t sure if an all white boot would make my outfit look too mod. Since I was the one designing my boots, I decided to try something different and chose a white leather for the front and a black leather for the back. The two toned boot is not only my favorite colors but is sure to make a statement or start a conversation.

Style: Mercer 100
Materials: White Napa Leather in front, Black snake print in back
Price: $169

Sweater | Marled similar style here
Shorts | Zara (sold out in white) similar style here
Jacket | Vintage
Bag | Strathberry
Shoes | Shoes of Prey

For the slingbacks, I decided to go with a Chanel-inspired design using the cap toe feature. I’ve been a fan of the Chanel slingbacks for a while but have been disappointed that they never have my size. Shoes of Prey allowed me to design a pair similar to the Chanel style and at a fraction of the cost. I also took advantage of their custom inscription option and added a little personal touch that makes me smile each time I wear these slingbacks, “Shoe love is true love” (isn’t that the truth). You can use code: DAILYKONGFIDENCE to get a FREE inscription valued at $49!

Style: Oscuri 70
Materials: Grey Napa Leather, Black Silk (for cap toe), no piping
Price: $149 + $49 custom inscription

/ Outfit Details /
Top | River Island (sold out) similar style here
Jeans | Levi’s similar style here
Jacket | All Saints similar style here

With new shoe styles launching almost every week, you have to check out Shoes of Prey to design your own pair of shoes.  Like I mentioned, it’s easy, fast (less than two weeks), returnable 365 days a year (unless you inscribe them), and free shipping (within US). Honestly, it doesn’t get much cooler than this!

I had a great experience with Shoes of Prey so thank you for sharing this! I love your white boots. For some reason, I can only see myself wearing black boots or dark colored shoes for the fall and winter but you are rocking those white boots so well! Also love the sling back Chanel inspired shoe because it’s so classy and stylish!

I’ve heard of this company! It seems like an easy process customizing your own pair of shoes. Are these shoes comfortable? Thanks for sharing!

Simply,

P.S. Love the sling back!

Hi Jenn, yes both pairs of shoes I received are very comfortable. The great thing is that the heel height is customizable so you can go with a lower heel (I went with mid heel range for both so I could wear them all over the place). It’s a fairly new company but they are growing and adding new styles all the time.

Omg I’m obsessed with Shoes of Prey, and so are the girls in my group! Now we all are engaged or in long term relationships, we’ve given away our clubbing stilettos for more practical but stylish ones like from here xx

My gosh you really do have tiny feet little lady! I have huge feet but lucky enough that my size is quite common to find (even during sale times). I’ve used Shoes of Prey once and loved how you can customise everything! I’ve always loved the business concept and I’ve been following their growth over the last 5 years and it’s been spectacular!

Girl, i’m hooked with the first look!!! Such a stunning girl boss girl!!! From the statement dress, to the monochrome vibes, to the chic boots!! It’s such a perfect creation!!! Love the second outfit too, specially that jacket from All Saints! I’m so such a huge fan of their leather jackets!! I have more than 5 of them at home in different colours. Their leathers are so soft and they are reasonable priced. Definitely great value for money!!! oh…Let’s talk about shoes!! Love Shoes of Prey in the second look. It’s such an elegant and classy look.

You look gorgeous, both looks are so stylish, but I’m completely obssesed over the first look. You look so chic and sophisticated at the same time. Your boots are simply fabulous and they totally add a great touch and visual interest to your entire combo.
To be honest I have never heard about Shoes of Prey, but after reading your post I will carefully check their page and customize my own pair. This sounds exciting!
Have a nice day!

So, when are you emerging as a shoe designer, Christine? I mean, your own designs AND the looks to go with them are impeccable and I love the black and white booties as well as the Chanel-inspired shoes with the personalized inscription. Your style is more on point than it probably ever has been before and has evolved to perfection! Thumbs up!!

I don’t know which one I like better, the boots or the low heels! How awesome you got to design the shoes and also pick the colors! I love how you did a two-tone color with both and how you styled them. Super chic always!

I’ve never heard of this brand before, but I will definitely visit their website, coz I’m madly in love with the first pair! I love its classic and elegant design, and what could be better than a black-white combination?
The second pair looks absolutely fantastic and very much Chanel! I love that dusty bluish grey colour so much! And paired with this jacket from All Saints you basically nailed this look! Love it!

OMG is this real life? I feel like I’ve heard of this brand a while ago. So glad that you brought it up again! I need it in my life. Those boots are killer. I am definitely one for shoes too, boots to be exact I can’t get enough of them. I also have small feet (size 6 woop woop) I usually don’t have too much trouble buying shoes but I hate buying them online in case they don’t fit and dealing with the hassle of returning them but this seems pretty easy. Thanks for sharing

OMG your feet are so small! You should try going to sample sales! Most shoe samples are size 36/37! On another note, I am obsessed with both of these looks! I love that you can customize your own shoes at Shoes of Prey! They are so reasonably priced and the material is great as well! I am definitely going to have to check them out! I’m in need of a few new pairs of shoes!

Thank you so much for sharing!

I have always wanted to try Shoes of Prey – I remember when they had a pop up in my Nordstrom. I love all the special details you can add and their range of sizes was super impressive too! As a fellow shoe lover, I LOVE the idea of designing your own shoes! Those boots are so fun and mod and how chic are those pumps! So good!

This brand I’ve heard of before and actually played around not there website before. This is genius. I am in love with your shoes. They are so cute and the styles
you have are so chic and look like the real thing. Both outfits are stunning and styled so well. I love those white shorts and jacket combo. Now to find a pair of the
jeans you are wearing. I would need to find a look alike. I have to try on jeans.Levis around here are the classic kind, not the super chic and trendy kind.

For the love of shoes! How cool is that you are able to design your own shoes, I’ve been wanting to do something like that for a long time but starting from scratch kind of puts me off because it takes so much time (and money). You’re designs are lovely and as chic as you, they match your style perfectly.
