I was given a bespoke pair of Louis Humphrey Love Heels shoes as a gift recently. Unlike other gifts, I was told what was in the box before I opened it- I don’t think the person giving me them thought I would believe them when I was told they were hand painted. As I opened the box, I was absolutely astounded by the incredible attention to detail, the quality of the artwork and absolute beauty of the shoes. As an artist, Louis is expressive, creative, and diligent and his attention to how the art is shaped around these shoes is unparalleled. Louis designs the artwork to fit the person, and the result is a truly unique and very much treasured pair of shoes. Despite regular wear at occasions such as dinners, weddings (and some pretty hefty travel between NI and England!) the artwork on the shoes has remained unchanged- crease-free and non-transferred. I would recommend a pair of Love Heels by Louis Humphrey to anyone wishing for a very special and commemorative possession.

I ordered a pair of Love Heels from Louis last year. I custom ordered a pair of heels with a painting of my cat Mea and they are absolute perfection! The painting looks exactly like my girl and the detail is incredible (the little painting that came with my order is just the cherry on top). I get loads of compliments when I wear my Mea shoes.

Earlier this year I contacted Louis to see if he could paint a particular theme on my shoes, I had in mind a universe/cosmos type of design. Whilst I had ideas of my own, Louis was fantastic in coming up with the finished concept. He was brilliant to work with, very easy to communicate with by email and in person and understood exactly where I was coming from with my ideas. When I received my shoes and opened up the box, I was completely blown away. My 'Space walk' shoes were even better in real life than I had ever imagined! I really do love them, they are so professionally painted and quite the envy of my friends. I wear them a lot and will definitely be placing an order again with Louis.

I placed an order with Louis Humphrey, the artist in April and was so pleased with my finished shoes. They are totally unique and I love the fact that they are an exact match for the dress I wore to my niece's graduation in July. I left my dress with Louis so as he could take the design from it. We agreed on a particular piece of pattern on the dress and Louis was great in that he prepared a sketch for me so as I could see how the finished shoes would look. At the graduation lots of people commented on how unique the shoes were and asked where I had managed to buy a dress with shoes to match!! Totally love this idea and I know 2 of my friends have now placed orders with Louis.

Louis Humphrey "Love Heels" How could I not be both thrilled and delighted with the beautiful boots I received unexpectedly and totally out of the blue as a surprise present! Not being a "high heels" kind of a girl, Louis suggested ankle boots, not stilettos, to my husband. Not only do I have a comfortable pair of boots to wear, I have a lifetime legacy of my much cherished springer spaniels and the lovely countryside of Islandmagee where we live. Louis is meticulous. Nothing but his very best will ever be produced. He thrives on new challenges and is a pleasure to work with. I wish him every success with Love Heels which shows off his incredible artistic talents. Girls who love and live for your shoes you are in for such a surprise when you see Louis' "Love Heels" range......get thinking. What would you chose to be on your shoes?
