How it works
- STEP 1. Choose a pair of shoes that you feel comfortable with that I will work on.
- STEP 2. Create an idea for your dream bespoke shoes. This can be your own design or you can work with me, the Artist. A coloured sketch will be emailed to you for your approval before work commences on the final shoes.
- STEP 3. Once complete, your shoes, individually signed by me, will be sent together with a ‘designer label’ miniature painting with easel.
Types of shoes
Choose a pair of shoes that you feel comfortable with and then we can ensure that you will be totally happy with the final result.
Preferred shoes – Leather, Faux or synthetic leather, Patent, Canvas or Satin. They can be high heels, platforms, kitten heels, low heels, flats or plain ankle boots with low or high heels. The larger the surface area to paint the better the results. As well as new shoes I can paint already worn shoes to totally transform them. I can work on any colour of shoe completely covering the shoe in a new design or create a design that leaves some of the original colour to show through.
New shoes need not be very expensive as my paintings will turn them into unique, bespoke shoes that will be the envy of your friends.
Unsuitable shoes – Sandal types, suede or faux suede, shoes with relief or designs already in place. Ankle boots with buckles or lots of stitching and straps.
The paintings on the shoes will be suitable for general wear and will be easily cleaned. It would, however, be best to avoid scratching them.
4-6 weeks from concept to delivery.
I have a wide range and selection of my hand painted shoes on display in my showroom attached to my studio. If you would like to see them before deciding on the commencement of your work please give me a call or an email to arrange an appointment to view them.
Once you have decided to go ahead with your hand painted shoes costs will include an initial design consultation stage with you at my studio/showroom, at your home, by email or by phone.
Costs will include colour sketches which will be provided by email to you for your approval before completion of the final hand painted shoes. Also included in the costs is the miniature 'designer label' painting with easel and also postage and packing. When you have received delivery of your finished shoes photographs of them will be sent to you by email and text for you or to show friends and family.
Your bespoke, original hand painted shoes will start from £200 for motif designs on your existing shoe colour.
Fully painted shoes will start from £350 depending on the design and subject required and style of shoe or boots. A final price will be be agreed at the early stages of discussion before the commencement of the work.
I usually work on only one pair of shoes per week due to the time involved in completing them.
A deposit of £50 will be required before work on the shoes commences. The price quoted will include your original miniature painting and postage of the finished shoes to you anywhere in the world. You will also receive an email of a series of photographs of the finished shoes. The final instalment payment method will be by Paypal, cheque, bank draft, internet banking.

Love Heels offer a bespoke, unique, and personal hand painted service. When placing an order with Love Heels we will discuss with you in person, by phone or email your exact individual requirements.
Love Heels will confirm in writing each order placed, notifying you of price and time scale. Time scale is defined as the period of time taken from receiving your shoes to the date Love Heels dispatches the completed shoes. Also included in the written confirmation will be a design brief outlining the provision of bespoke hand painted work to be carried out as per your requests.
Prior to commencing work on your shoes you must firstly send us the shoes you wish Love Heels to work on together with your £50 deposit. It is only upon receipt of the shoes and deposit that a full colour design illustration will be created to help give an insight as to how you can expect your completed shoes to look. This illustration is the artist’s impression only and therefore could be subject to change without prior notice should Love Heels deem necessary. Should you not be satisfied with the design illustration upon receipt, you must make this known immediately in writing prior to the commencement of the hand painted service being carried out on your own shoes.
Please note that you must send your shoes to Love Heels before any bespoke design illustrations can be drawn up. After receiving the illustration your £50.00 prior paid deposit is non-refundable should you change your mind about having the shoes painted just prior to the commencement of the work and wish to have your shoes returned.
