The shoes are cute, and were received a lot sooner than expected so bonus for fast shipping. I was extremely apprehensive after purchasing these shoes to read the shop owner's long list of notes and stipulations. I'm still very wary about the weather/wet surface note as I'm getting married in January in Maryland so there's high potential for a wet or snowy ground, & fading dye from my shoes isn't a wedding memory I want. It would have been nice to have the shoes sprayed with water/weatherproofing protectant prior to receiving them for the price I've paid, but que sera sera.

Hi Dimonique, Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry you are feeling apprehensive about the included wet weather reminder note. The note is included in my shop policies & with each order to try to avoid any potential wedding day issues. To prevent the dye & satin from becoming damaged, I always advise brides wearing dyeable satin shoes, sprayed or not, to avoid wearing their shoes where they may get wet. It is my ultimate wish that each bride absolutely love their special accessories; which is why I offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all of the items in my shop. If you'd like to return the shoes, I am happy to accept the return. If you have any questions I can answer, please message me. I am always happy to answer questions or concerns. Best wishes, Victoria

About

I just love to make beautiful things!

It is an absolute joy to make a bride's special pair of shoes; the ones she has been searching and searching for and has finally found. I hope to create something that you will never forget and that you can treasure for years to come. I consider it a beautiful privilege to be apart of any bride's special day and hope to make all of your dream shoes come true.

Also excited to introduce you to my all new and completely original, custom wedding Toms line!

Designing and decorating clothing has always been a passion of mine. My favorite materials to decorate with are venetian laces, lace appliques, Swarovski crystals, brooches, and feathers. These materials combined make for sweet, elegant, eye catching shoes. I will continue to create new designs, so keep coming back to see what I've added!

How it all started:
After graduating from NC State University with a BA Fashion design and marketing degree, I went into the bridal and pageant sector of the design world.
After graduating my husband and I got engaged, which led to my own bridal shoe search. I searched and searched for the perfect wedding shoes and found none. I thought, someone had to make pretty sparkly bridal shoe (especially for tall women with wide feet). After that I started making fancy shoes and decided to share the beauty with other brides, who were searching for that perfect pair of shoes.

Currently my husband and I, plus our rambunctious toddler and one evil kitten live on the North Carolina Outer Banks.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Please check out our sizing help page before purchasing.

You can find the sizing chart and instructions in my "About" section here:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheCrystalSlipper#about

Click through the pictures to see the sizing chart.

Please note that due to shoe size differences; applique and crystal placement may vary slightly from the image displayed. Also, colors may vary slightly due to variations in computer monitor display settings. Most shoes are available in USA sizes 5-12.

If you receive your shoes and they are too large and slip in the heel, we encourage you first to try a back of the heel cushion or a ball of the foot pad to reduce the slipping; these can be found at most department stores.

Care instructions

Dyeable satin shoes are delicate and are not colorfast. If dyeable satin shoes are exposed to moisture the dye will bleed. You can minimize this by not wearing your dyeable shoes where they may get wet, such as in damp grass and on rainy days. If you are in an area of very high humidity do your best to limit non-essential wear time while outside.
To help protect your shoes from small amounts of moisture you can also spray them with a rain guard spray. Rain guard sprays can be found on Amazon or at specialty shoe stores.
With the first few wears of your new shoes, you may experience some color rubbing on your foot. With dark colors in particular this is normal. Soap and water can be used to remove any color rubbing on your foot.

Rush Orders

Custom orders will take at least 8 weeks (but it is worth it!) Shoe completion dates are based on a first come first served date.

Please allow an additional 1 week for shipping within the USA.

Need shoes sooner than the estimated lead time? It is best to contact me for rush order options AND wait to order until you receive a reply. Rush Orders generally incur and additional $50 rush order fee.

Please do not purchase your shoes without waiting to hear a response. Failure to do so may result in a cancellation of your order and a 25% material restocking feel.

Orders shipped to North Carolina Residents will be charged sales tax.
All others will not be charged sales tax.

Wholesale availability

Available upon request. Please message me for details.

Care instructions

Due to the nature of the crystals and because each crystal is applied by hand, it is possible that you will lose some crystals with each wear. The shoes should be treated as a worn work of art. I will include an extra bag of crystals in each pair of shoes just in case some do pop off. It is not difficult to reapply crystals with a touch of super glue.

Color Concerns

Due to computer monitor color setting displays, shoe colors may differ in person. If you are concerned about receiving a color match to your dress, you are more than welcome to send me a swatch to match.
