I always wanted to have a pair of custom heels made because no heel ever fits really right...

So if you had it done..was it worth it?

I've had knee high boots custom made. I LOVE my first pair! They fit beautifully! Unfortunately, the German company/factory that made them no longer takes custom orders. I tried a 2nd company from Spain, but I was disappointed with their work and the 3rd was based out of China. I let my husband surprise me with the design and although the boots themselves came out fine (fit and quality), I hate the actual design of the boot. (It's based on a CL design.) My husband didn't realize the cut when he chose it.


I haven't really found anyone who does trendy custom women's shoes (heels or boots) in NYC, so I have to keep resorting to the internet.

I think it costs about $2,500 to get started in decent quality custom shoes. The "last" itself is easily over a thousand. You can get really nice custom boots and shoes made inexpensively in Esteli, Nicaragua if you like to travel.
