Heroes and Heels

Want to show off your Disney Side, Star Wars Side, or any other whimsical love?  Take a look at these custom designed and hand-decorated shoes that can put a little magic in your step!

To get your custom shoes, go to the Etsy Store: HeroesandHeels 

About the designer and her store:
" I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I've been here about three and a half years.  I'm originally from Missouri.  I started making the comic shoes about a year ago with a friend, we wanted Wonder Woman and Avengers shoes, but they didn't seem to exist anywhere.  So we decided to make them ourselves.  Once people saw us wearing them, we started getting requests to make more so we opened the Etsy store, called HeroesandHeels.  I use comics, stickers, or pages from books to cover the shoes, and Mod Podge to adhere them.  The shoes are then finished and sealed with clear acrylic sealant, so they're water resistant and won't lose their glossy finish.   I've started making all different styles and designs, like Hello Kitty, Star Wars, and Disney princesses.  I even made a pair of men's Street Fighter shoes for my boyfriend.  I can do most styles of shoes as long as they don't lace up (although so far heels have been the most popular).  I have all the styles I've done so far up on my Etsy store, but I have lots of other ideas and I'm always hoping someone will request something new and unusual."

Disclosure: I received shoes from the designer to test out myself, but my opinions are my own and unbiased.
