Dying these Vegtan oxfords with Fiebling's leather dye in oxblood with a small hint of purple at the toe and heel!
Here are some images of my process while making these custom victorian inspired wedding booties. Making the pattern, cutting the leather, modifying the last and stitching the uppers. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
The first time my custom design is available to the public! Check out www.soccistilettostampede.com for details on the event.
I am so thankful to have to opportunity to create a very special pair of shoes in honor and memory of someone who made such a great impact in other people's lives. May katies spirit live on and guide others to make a positive impact in this world we live. <3
Handpainted an old pair of shoes... Experimenting with waterbased urethane on materials other than leather. So far I am very satisfied with the outcome. What do you think?
The high gloss was important on this pair to give them a porcelain-like finish!

I designed this shoe in honor of Katie Marie Socci. Made with genuine leather in hot pink and ponyfur (hair on calf) with a leopard print pattern.
The shoe will be auctioned off on May 11th at the event.
This sandal is truly one of a kind and will feature a handpainted outsole with Katie's initials.
I hope to help the foundation raise money! So if your in the central New York area go check it out.
