DIY: Design your own shoes

I've always had lots of ideas on designing shoes but it is hard to get all that special equipment and materials. If you'd like to wear your own designs, here is this site I discovered:

These designs are actually drawn by YOU! You first choose the shoe's style:
Gladiator, Ankle Boot, Round toe, Platform, Wedge, Pointed toe or Ballet Flat.
Then in a canvas like application, you add the desired material (Leather, Suede, Fish scales, silk and more) in the various places of the shoe. Choose any decorations and heel height and your shoes are ready! Then you can order them. Prices are rather high, but when do you get the chance to wear your own shoes?

These pictures on the side are actually finished products displayed in the site's gallery. The gallery is the best place to get an idea of what your design will look like in real life.

 Here is the official Shoes of Prey video tutorial to get you started. Enjoy!
