Friday Favorite: Shoes of Prey

Shoes of Prey ReviewIt’s frustrating when you see totally cool and unique statement shoes but they’re not available in your size or width. Whether you have narrow feet or wide, when you leave the land of M or B width shoes, selection diminishes and the options often veer toward Frumpville. And if your foot is smaller than a 6 or larger than 11, you’re often out of luck.

Enter Shoes of Prey, a brand of badass footwear in sizes 2 to 15 and widths NN to WW. What makes them so badass? Well, there’s a few reasons.

  • Go to Shoes of Prey’s website where you can design your perfect shoe. Choose your shape, your color, and have them shipped for free right to your front door. Not perfect? Even though they’re custom made for you, you can still get your money back. If you’d rather have an in-person experience, Shoes of Prey has partnered with a few Nordstrom locations across the US where a stylist will help you craft your perfect shoe.
  • Check out the pre-designed footwear in a bevy of sizes and widths. Click on “Gallery” on the Shoes of Prey website where at the time of writing this, they had 147 different styles available to purchase. Nordstrom has 51 different styles from Shoes of Prey currently available on their website, and plenty of styles at their stores.
  • Wish you could get that certain shoe but with a shorter heel, or a thinner heel, or maybe a different color heel?  You can do that on the Shoes of Prey site.  Click on any shoe and then click “Edit Design” where you can alter most every part of the shoe, even the insole!  Take that snakeskin platform stiletto and switch it to a satin kitten heel with a rosette detail and an ankle strap.  For fun, I took this ankle strap high heel; a style I like but can't wear for more than an hour and on their site switched it to tiger calfhair with a metallic toe sole and heel, red ankle strap, and brought it down to a comfortable 1 1/4″ height.  The possibilities are endless!
  • Worldwide shipping, 365 days to remake or return your shoes, free shipping to the United States, they'll even reimburse you cobbler fees if you need to have your Shoes of Prey fixed locally.  On top of this, a really easy to navigate site that if it doesn't answer any question you have, there's a live chat available.

Always needed a silver glitter peeptoe bootie in your life? Love the look of metallic oxfords but can't find them in your size? Desire some trendy flat sandals this summer but need them in a narrow or wide width? Desire a pair of “something blue” dressy wedges for your wedding day? All of these can be found at Shoes of Prey’s website where you can customize even further with heel height, material, and even a personal inscription inside the shoe.

I haven’t yet purchased any shoes from Shoes of Prey, but I have bookmarked their site for fall fashion. While I wear an 8 medium for most closed-toe shoe styles, I do need wide for sandals and strappy heels and prefer wide for boots and shoes that work with thick socks. And once I do try Shoes of Prey you know I will be back here to report on the shopping experience, quality, and fit!

Note: This post isn't sponsored and I have no relationship with Shoes of Prey.  While I haven't tried the brand, I belive it may be the answer to many of your footwear woes.  I receive many questions regarding non-medium width and non-standard sized shoes and where to find stylish shoes with walkable heel heights.  If you've tried Shoes of Prey please leave your experience, positive or negative, in the comments to assist fellow Wardrobe Oxygen readers!

    I’ve had a friend get some and they are really great quality and have good customer support.
    The only thing I would note is that they are normal sizes in custom designs rather than being made to measure.
    This page has some information on their sizing https://www.shoesofprey.com/content/sizing.html

    I will definitely try this for a 1.4 or 2 inch block heel. Awesome, thanks!

    Wow, that’s awesome. I was surprised the post wasn’t sponsored. They really should at least send you a pair of shoes. 🙂

    looks like great fun, even though I’m a pretty normal size. Who wouldn’t want to create shoes? xo

    OMG! I have A width feet – most mediums are B/C and narrows are AA widths. This might be an answer to prayer for me. I get buy with brands that run narrow, but that limits my options. Also, because I’m a runner I need wide calf boots – try finding those with a narrow-ish foot!

      Regarding wide calf/narrow foot boots, consider DUO Boots (which is going through a rebrand/renaming). They do custom width calves and a TON of reviews from readers sharing what is narrow in the foot, etc.
