Words from a happy bride

"Nicky is the most helpful, kind, inventive shoe designer I've ever come across. She came up with a stunning and unique design for my wedding shoes which complimented my dress and flowers and wowed all our wedding guests. 

I couldn't have imagined a more beautiful design for my wedding shoes! Nicky cleverly incorporated all the creative elements from the wedding into their design and added a sprinkling of sparkle. I love my shoes so much that now my wedding day has passed, I've put the shoes in a glass cabinet in my lounge so I can see them every day!"  

Rachel (the bride)

What our customers are saying

Nicky turned my 'Plain-Jane' wedding shoes into Cinderella Shoes! They are AMAZING! They sparkle and are totally unique. I can't wait for my wedding day just to wear the shoes, nothing else matters now! Best of all Nicky was brilliant - giving advice on all sorts. An easy and trustworthy service I can highly recommend.

Customised Shoes Design Service

Let's get those shoes designed for you. They'll look individual and be the talk of your night out! Extra special touches added to shoes for wedding guests, catwalk models, boys shoes and birthday girls, plus wellies for winter brides, designer shoes and handbags. A ski helmet, a tuxedo jacket and a prom dress have also had the sparkle added. High heels, flats, party shoes, wedding shoes, converse for brides and bridesmaids and beloved wedding shoes are all in my gallery and Instagram. Grooms-to-be have posted me shoes as a lovely surprise gift for their brides too! 


I think it's important that I offer flexible pricing to suit everyone's budget. No work is undertaken until we have had a good chat and gone through all the options together. Knowing the difference between rhinestones, preciosa and Swarovski is something I talk customers through. My prices range between £25 - £750, so its very varied! It all depends on whether you want a few sparkles or a fully covered pair of shoes, plus how big a design and the grade of crystal, or whether you want pearls, lace or feathers.  Please allow me to give you a quote before you make any decision.


It's not just about the bling, I am passionate about designing 


Creating a design for someone, exceeding their expectations and seeing them smile is what makes me happy. What would you love to have? Send me a message or call me, I would like to know!


Why work with me?


You will get a 1-2-1 design service from me, all starting off with a relaxed shoe chat. I am proud to say I won four design competitions on my shoe design degree, the more well-known awards being from Church's Footwear and Clarks. I went to Florence, Italy as a result of my achievements at university and worked in the industry as a shoe designer. It was 2008 when I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Shoes & Accessories Design, and by 2010 I was customising shoes as a hobby! It's just having that freedom to create from scratch and to your own rules, its exciting and therapeutic. The first pair I did, was just by cutting up a gold metal necklace I really liked in H&M, and sewing the chain and the metal flowers onto a satin pair of black shoes. Then I added a white silver zip down the heels of another white pair of shoes and added silver metal studs. I started learning how to make satin flowers and frothy bows for shoes (Lady Gaga was big on the scene) … and then came the feathers... aaaah!

Your designed shoes will not be a repeat of shoes already on the high street. They will be unique to you, and reflecting who you are. And,the crystals will be the grade you have asked me to use, and not a cheaper version. I use the right methods which keep your crystals onto your shoes for a very long time and your crystals will not be damaged by the weather.

I live in a quaint village called Ramsbottom in the Pennine Hills valley of Greater Manchester, UK. No matter where you might be in the world we can chat via WhatsApp, messenger or email. Or, if you're local then let's meet for coffee and a shoe chat.
