Australian bespoke footwear brand Shoes of Prey has been delivering one of a kind kicks to shoe aficionados since 2009. From sky-high heels to sole-saving flats, anyone can dream up their perfect style starting at $140, which can be shipped anywhere in the world in just four weeks. Genius? Yes. Dangerous? Very.
In honor of NYFW and their collaborative nature, Shoes of Prey teamed up with three cult-favorite designers—Jonathan Simkhai, Mandy Coon (pictured), and Gretchen Jones—to produce custom footwear for their SS13 collections. I swung by the Coon show at MADE Fashion Week in Milk Studios yesterday to peep the results and, as expected, I was floored by the construction of each individual style. Innovative touches like metal inserts on ankle cuff flats and steel caps on wedge booties paired well with Coon’s phenomenal futuristic aesthetic this season. I was especially enamored with the snakeskin and fish skin stilettos, which featured binding ankle wraps that I wouldn’t mind being strapped in forever.
