How to design black shoes - and make them your own - Shoes of Prey

Every gal needs a pair of black shoes. But black doesnít equal boring - especially when you can customize your own shoes. Prepare to shove those basic boots aside for something that's much more you (and far more fabulous). Add a pop of pink here, a glitter toe there, or a super sexy red lining. Sucker for snake skin? Add it as a heel on your 3 inch black leather pumps for that extra somethin' somethin' your basics were missing.

Jodie took a pair of patent leather Mary Janes and customised them with a leopard hair heel. Cute, no?


  • Lining: opt for a pop of colour. Itís a fun little secret between you and your shoe.
  • Heel: itís all about the party in the back. Go glitter, or how about hair? It makes for a stylish walk off.
  • Texture: mix those materials. Canít choose between patent and suede? Thereís no need too. Have them both.
  • Decorate: the cherry on top. Ruffles at the back. Bow on the toe. Make it a Mary Jane by adding a strap.
