I design custom shoes. I take both design ideas as well as supply my own. I want to see where the interest would be with members of the Eden Community. If you are interested, please feel free to message me. Multiple price choices are encouraged.

It depends on the type of shoe and how custom it is. Boots I'd pay more for than a pump or something.

I only say not interested because I couldn't imagine paying so much for something material.

sXeVegan90, I completely understand your sentiment and it helps for me to know reasons people are willing to or not willing to make certain purchases. I need to make a living with my trade and it helps to understand the needs to customers and non-customers alike so I appreciate your feedback.

Spunkmonkey and Kira, thank you for the feedback about boots. It certainly helps to know what people would prefer to invest in. Red Kyuubi, thanks for being willing to detail your price specification.

I don't think I could spend more on custom shoes than on regular shoes. Customization isn't that big of a deal to me. I personally wouldn't spend over $100 for a pair of shoes.

i wear $250 work boots. I can get some $400 boots made within 15 miles of my house. But my $250 shoes work just fine.

Economically speaking I would love to pay $200 or more for shoes if I could afford it on a regular basis but being a working girl I have to be more practical. There have been times I wished I had a designer shoe made just for me. At 5'9" with small wide feet and past knee surgeries I always had to wear "health shoes". Now at least their finally stronger and I can wear cowboy boots comfortably even with pointed toes as long as they're in calves leather. Heels are always a big problem too! Being tall is bad enough so I don't go higher than a 2" heel, even then it makes me taller than hubby and self-conscious. The styles today with those tall spiked heels just won't do still I enjoy wearing pretty girly clothes, jewelry and even shoes.

Hummingbird, I completely understand. I make shoes of varying kinds. Flats, sneakers, heels more than anything and boots on occasion. I myself have a cyst in my ankle due to an injury I sustained dancing and can no longer wear heels for extended periods of time. Things like flats and sneakers run on the cheaper end on my design spectrum (i.e. below $50) but everything depends on what people want designed for them, or choose from my own designs.

In general the cost goes up because it is labor from one person and materials. It kind of points the the rut we are in as a country. We want to have everything made in the USA, but unless all our companies were making the things we like and we were exporting on as large a basis as China or Thailand, we would have to pay a ton for things we get rather cheaply and at the cost of poor or child labor in some foreign country.

So in short, I completely understand pain issues, practicality concerns, wallet concerns and just world politics. Ha ha. Thanks so much. I hate wearing "health shoes," but I do have to on occasion.

I'm not much of a shoe person so custom shoes aren't really on my "want-it" list. I am wearing a pair of customized Chuck Taylors for my wedding (yeah, I don't like heels THAT much), but that's about as far as I'd go.
