What if I told you that your dream wedding shoes were just a click away? That finding the perfect pair is just a case of coming up with the idea? Well your dream is about to become a reality with Upper Street Shoes! The luxury brand allows you to become the designer of your own perfect pair of stilettos, boots, sandals or ballet flats, and believe me when I say that you’ll do it once and be hooked for life!
You can choose from hundreds of different styles, colours, materials and heels to create over 4 million unique designs using their online 3D design tool! The shoes are available in sizes 33-44 and cost from £195.
However if you prefer to do things in person then a design appointment at the Shoe Lounge, in the heart of Fitzrovia, central London, is a must-do. Their four story townhouse is decked out top to bottom with samples, swatches and lovely shoe fairies who will help you design your dream pair of footwear, with a glass of fizz or a cup of tea in hand!
This service is by appointment only, and is available for one-on-one consultations or private shoe parties. To book an appointment you can call 0207 148 7070 or email email@example.com.
Your shoes will take 3-4 weeks to be lovingly hand-crafted and delivered directly to your door, and if they arrive and they’re not quite right (like, maybe they are just a teeny bit too small) they will remake them for you, free of charge!
Design and win!
Prepare to get those creative juices flowing because I’m giving you the chance to win a visit to the Shoe Lounge to create your very own pair of dream shoes. Oh I am just too good to you!
To enter, simply head over to upperstreet.com and use their 3D design tool to mock up your idea of shoe heaven. If you’re stumped for ideas, there is plenty of inspiration in their shoe gallery to get you started.
Once you’re done, simply screenshot the shoe and post it to Instagram using the hashtag #rocknrollshoelounge. Tag both @upperstreetshoe and @rocknrollbride in the caption and also let us know what your inspiration was. You must also follow both @upperstreet and @rocknrollbride to qualify.
You have two weeks, until midnight Wednesday 19th August to enter, and we will pick our favourite design and leave a comment on the winning Instagram after that date.
Edit: Due to some issues with the Upper Street website when viewed on a phone or tablet, we have extended the deadline for this contest. You now have until midnight 26th August to enter. Please use a laptop or desktop computer to register and design your shoes!
