Oliver Sweeney the British luxury footwear and accessory specialist have recently announced the launch of an exclusive custom made shoe service.
The service will offer the style savvy consumer the opportunity to create a truly unique shoe. A choice of coloured, or natural exotic materials such as crocodile, ostrich and iguana skin, are available.
Customers can also select design details such as piping, lining and lace options, which can be incorporated into two popular toe shapes, `Twister` and `Venice`. Along with selecting the main design features, the customer can also take the customisation one step further by personalising the sole of the shoe with an embossed stamp. This can range from the wearer`s name, initials, a pertinent date or message, allowing the customer to have their design credentials permanently embedded in the shoe.
The custom made shoe service involves the customer in the design process from beginning to end, from the initial design consultation where the customer will be fitted for the right size to selecting toe shape, colours, skins, lacing and detailing. After the design is signed off by the customer, it is then sent to Oliver Sweeney`s factory in Ancona, Italy, where it will be created uniquely to the customer`s specifications and hand finished. The service will be available in the brand`s three, UK standalone stores – New Bond St, Kings Road and Leeds as well as the brand`s concession in Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge.
The final product is delivered to the customer packaged in a wooden box with an embossed Oliver Sweeney custom made shoe logo. The entire `custom made` process takes up to 12 weeks and prices range from £495 ($1000 approx) up to £990 ($2000 approx).
