Make your own shoes in two easy steps:

  1. Choose the heel height you want. The shoe bottoms are made by hand in Chicago from recycled tires, a Finnish birch plywood core & topped with various select veneers & glued together with eco-friendly everything.
  2. Select the ribbon that keeps the shoe on your foot.

Different lengths and styles of ribbons can be used to achieve a virtually infinite number of looks with just one pair of wooden bottoms. So anybody can play Imelda Marcos without requiring the budget and storage space for 5,000 shoes.  Available at Mohop.com - via Rotem Gear.
