AWESOME JOB, Miranda! I love my wedding shoes and I can't wait to show them off! I'm already planning to display them at the reception. Great communication, shared sketches and made necessary changes as requested. Great ideas and very talented... Added some extra nuances such as buttons down the heel to match the back of my wedding dress. Quick shipment too. Stayed right on track with the timeframe of when the shoes would be painted and when they'd be shipped out. Thanks again!

Who says your wedding shoes can't be fun?
One of the most beautiful moments in a woman's life is walking down the aisle on her wedding day. The only problem is, most wedding shoes you see in stores are white and bland. I came across this problem when I was searching for the perfect shoes to wear on my wedding day. Frustration overwhelmed me after scouring the internet and local shoe stores, only to find the same bland shoes.
Six months after my wedding, a small idea began to form in my head. My mother, after watching 'P.S. I Love You', called me one day to tell me that I just HAD to see this girl's shoe designs. "Shoes?!" I thought, still slightly harboring frustration from wedding shoe shopping. "They're all so boring!" ...That's when it hit me! Who says that your shoes have to be white and bland on your wedding day?!
You are so special! You were lovingly created by God; there is not a person on this earth exactly like you... and this is your special day! I believe wedding shoes should be extremely special: an extension of the bride's personality and the couple's love!
If you have a wedding coming up or you just really want a pair of awesome hand painted shoes, just let me know! I will work personally with you to come up with a design that you love and will help make your wedding one of those most beautiful moments!

Four years ago, I married my best friend, David. It was the best decision I ever made. I started painting wedding shoes for the sole purpose of bringing glory to God, who gave me my talent, and showing others that love and life is beautiful.
All items are ready to ship to their new homes when you place your order, unless otherwise noted.
WHAT ARE ‘LOVE, MIRANDA MARIE’ SHOES?
Love, Miranda Marie is a privately-owned, fine art Etsy shoe store, focused on making creative fashion you’ll love! All of the shoes I work with are high-quality and gently used (unless otherwise noted in the case of, for example, brand new shoes). I bring old shoes to life by using Prismacolor markers, Fabric markers, and Sharpies for drawing my custom artwork on the shoes. I also love to use vintage buttons, rhinestones, and ribbons as accents. Each pair of shoes are sprayed with a clear sealant so that the design stays gorgeous and won't rub off. Happiness! However, please take care to protect your hand-drawn shoes from exposure to moisture. Even though I use permanent markers and sealant, the ink may run if it gets wet. I'm not saying it will, but just to be safe.
I gladly accept custom orders! I understand that I may not have shoes already made in your size and that is why custom orders are so handy. If you are interested in me customizing a pair of your shoes, please ask me! I will work personally with you to make sure you get exactly what you want. Payment is due when the piece is complete and listed in the shop. I ask that you give me at least 2 months from the time I receive your shoes, to be able to create a design specifically for you and paint them before sending them back to you. Since I work with Permanent markers and acrylic paint, the design is permanent, so I won't be able to do any edits for you once I’ve started drawing or painting. Keep in mind too, that they can not be returned, since the items were created specifically for you on your beloved shoes.
My apartment is smoke-free and pet-free. I do have a husband, but he doesn’t shed.
Of course ask questions! I am a very happy, nice person and I’d love to talk to you!

Additional policies and FAQs
If cared for, Love Miranda Marie shoes will last for many years.
I use permanent markers on the shoes and then spray them with a sealant, but it is still possible for the shoes to smear if you expose them to moisture. DO NOT WASH! And no matter how tempting it is, do not splash in puddles or run in the rain with your Love Miranda Marie shoes on. I suppose I would also recommend not swimming with them on either. ;)
Each pair of Love Miranda Marie shoes is a work of art so treat them with care. Keep your special shoes apart from your other shoes, so that your hand-drawn shoes will not get scuff marks or colors on them from the others. Do not try to scrub scuff marks off the shoes! If you really MUST get a scuff mark off, take a Q-tip and a very little bit of alcohol to gently wipe it off, but keep in mind, you MUST NOT get the alcohol on the design because the alcohol will most likely take off the design, too! I really recommend you don’t even try it.
Thank you so much for your business and support! :)
