So fun and sexy, and I love piano, so I had to buy. They'll be part of a costume I'm creating.

The artwork is beautiful and even better than the picture. I do wish these were actual Tom's but I still love them. Just need an insole.

About

Just a lover of art and shoes

I fell into creating hand-painted shoes almost accidentally, which is often the best way to start a new project.. I was home from college on break, with nothing to do but sit around and stare at my feet. It occurred to me that you can get shoes made out of canvas, which is the perfect surface for painting. I decided to create some wearable art, and soon compliments led to requests, which led to my Etsy shop.

Catherine LaPointe is a freelance illustrator, designer, and lover of shoes. You can see more of her work online at www.CatherineLaPointe.com.

Thanks for checking out my custom hand-painted shoes! I started painting shoes because they were unique and different and fun, something you won't find anywhere else. I'm here to help you create exactly what you're looking for, so don't be afraid to ask for customization!

Payment
Paypal is preferred, but credit cards are accepted.

If you plan on sending me your own shoes to paint, I must receive your payment through Etsy for the design before I begin.

You can request a cancellation of the order at any time, but if I have already begun I reserve the right to refuse, so the sooner the better.
Shipping
For US shoe orders, expect around 3 weeks average turnaround time. I will always give you a tracking number. I also ship internationally, and I can give you the US Customs form number, which can sometimes be used for tracking.

Please give me your US mens/womens/youth/toddler shoe size. You can use shoe size conversion charts found here, as a general guide, though estimated sizes are not guaranteed to fit:

Due to the custom sized and designed nature of my items, I do not offer refunds. If you're concerned about shoes not fitting properly, I encourage you to send me your own shoes to paint.
