The Five Easy Steps To Get Your Pumps And Stiletto Sandals Personalised At Prada

As footwear maestro Jimmy Choo shared with us, not everyone is exactly blessed with perfectly symmetrical feet. Which makes perfect sense to have made-to-measure shoes. Prada’s ongoing footwear customisation series has nothing to do with that. But the add-ons it allows for your shoes is an attractive proposition for those who want something special and personal with their luxury goods.

This year’s service, which focuses on classic pumps and stiletto sandals, will be available at the brand’s Ion and Paragon boutiques, from April 28 to May 2, and from May 4 to May 8, respectively. Italian artisans would be on hand to assemble the shoes, which take about 10 weeks to complete.

What makes this year’s personalisation different from the previous years is how customers are allowed to add charms, date of birth or their lucky numbers on top of their initials for the soles for the first time. For a complete picture of the service, we share a step-by-step guide here.

#1: The shoe style and height
Choose from 19 different style of pumps and sandals in eight different heel heights, options of platform soles and single soles, and material finishes. #2: The prints
A new print has been introduced now on patent leather. Cue the whimsical pattern of flowers and lips. #3: The colours and buckle
The shoes come in six different shades and can be adorned with your choice of a bejewelled buckle in suede, velvet or patent leather.     #4: The soles
Choose from three colours: black, lily-of-the-valley pink or pastel blue. Then use your creativity to adorn them. There is a choice of adding your initials, charms, date of birth, and your lucky number — in an amber or gunmetal finish.       #5: The packaging
The final step is the design of your shoe box. Choose either the new print (see point 2) or a classic Prada blue box which can be embellished with an elastic band with a metal plaque. The total price for this project? From $1,200 to $4,890. Like this?
