About

Excited to share the geeky side of shoes with you!

Welcome to Geeky Girl Shoes! A place where you can get custom handmade redesigned shoe creations to make your inner geek happy! Styles and designs are available for men & woman, as well as some styles for children.

I love all my customers and really try an any way I can to help you get your geeky desired shoe! When you purchase Geeky Girl Shoes you will not only find geeky unique shoes, you will find designs that may fit your interests, hobbies, or just beautiful designs that you wouldn't be able to find made on an existing shoe.
I work with many items to make my creations unique to each other, from the outer sealants for durability and design look, to fabric paints and ribbon, as well as adding glitter, and pendant charm additions to shoes. I can use pretty much any fabric material: from satin to flannel as well as lace. With each pair of shoes I redesign I try to provide a custom and unique finished product that provides each customer with an item that is not just a carbon copy of the previous. Each order will be unique to the customers desire and made to provide the best overall look of the shoe and design. Please remember that these are not just carbon copies of the previous versions I've done, meaning that each order may be a bit different in layout, or placement of fabric design. Remember I hand craft these, they are not mass produced.
Please note that the appearance of the shoes once you have been wearing them is greatly dependent on your care. These are hand crafted, not mass produced. If worn excessively, in conditions that are not favorable, or depending on the style you have chosen the condition of the shoes may be compromised. Please remember that these are more of a novelty shoe for your special and specific interest and certain styles may not be ideal for everyday wear. I try my best to use the best sealants possible to make each shoe as durable as I can but in such cases, more so with shoes that flex, that something may happen to your shoes after wear please feel free to message me and I can give some tips on repair.

At Geeky Girl Shoes I am ALWAYS willing to find a style shoe you may be needing or interested in that is not listed to customize, whether you're wanting a shoe for casual wear or a special event Geeky Girl Shoes can help you out! Depending on the style chosen I will best pick the color shoe, etc. that will best suit the design chosen. If interested in a specific color or you are wanting more details about the shoe please leave a message in the note section at purchase or message me prior to ordering. If no detailed instructions is given about how you would like the shoe to look I will use my own creative decision on the creation of your shoes.

Interested in a fabric design idea but don't see it? I will do my best to find that item to create your custom desired shoe. Please know that custom requests may vary in price depending on shoe style being requested or the detail of your request itself.

ORDERS WILL TAKE 4 TO 6 WEEKS FOR COMPLETION, PLEASE UNDERSTAND I HAVE TO ORDER THE SHOES AND THEN CUSTOMIZE THEM AND I HAVE MULTIPLE ORDERS I AM WORKING ON AT A TIME. IF YOU NEED THEM SOONER THAN THIS TIME FRAME PLEASE MESSAGE ME PRIOR TO PURCHASING. IF NOT CONTACTED PRIOR TO PURCHASE YOUR ORDER WILL BE DONE IN 4 TO 6 WEEKS AS STATED MULTIPLE TIMES IN MY POLICIES. THANK YOU!

With Geeky Girl Shoes you can rest assured that I will take the time to find exactly what you are wanting and try to fulfill your full request to the best of my ability!

Welcome to Geeky Girl Shoes!

Geeky Girl Shoes does anything from your love of comics, cosplay, sports teams, video games, movies, art, hobbies, or your profession that you want to show case on a custom shoe. I am always in the process of trying to find fabrics and designs that are unique and creative. If there are any styles or items that I may not show on here I do have a facebook page where I post many more fabrics I have ordered or can get.

There are many sellers out there who do what I do, just like everything else in the world "there is nothing new under the sun." However everyone is different and can provide a different product and feel to each item. I try to bring unique differences with Geeky Girl Shoes and am trying to make shoes that are all different kinds of designs. I am willing to find and make whatever you are looking for to fulfill your custom shoe desire.
I use fabric paints, glitter, rhinestones, and many more items on many of my creations to add extra design detail. As well as several different kinds of sealants and glues to make your shoes as durable and as wearable as possible.

**Please understand that I try my best to make each shoe as durable as i can with the added sealants and special treatment BUT they are still handmade and can be damaged like any other shoe dependent on the treatment and care you provide for them. Certain shoe styles may be more durable than others. Just like any other kind of shoe, wear a tear may occur faster and may cause the condition of the shoe to be greatly compromised if wearing shoes in environments that are not suitable for the shoes. The shoes I design are not snow boots, exercise sneakers, running shoes, rain boots, or hiking shoes, so do try and handle with care for a longer life of you custom shoe. I try my best to provide you with a product that is unique, fun, and as creative as I can make them for your geeky needs. If for any reason you have concerns of any kind about the care or condition of your shoes after wearing your custom shoes please feel free to message me and I can try my very best to assist you with whatever your concerns or questions may be.

Remember that each finished product made will not be exactly like another based on shoe style chosen and fabric design because these are handmade. Some designs chosen may be altered a bit on the shoe dependent on which style shoe you chose because of the space available on the shoe. I try my hardest to produce a unique and custom product that will showcase exactly what you are requesting, unique to you and your style.

I love all different styles of heels. I have listed the basics for sale however I also try to find unique styles and heights to sell as well. Once I have done a different type of shoe or heel I will always post that style for sale unless that item is no longer available for me to order for you.
Please be aware that when ordering heels unless you have voiced the heel height you would like already, I will always messaged you and try to get a response on what height you would like. If I do not get a request on height nor a reply when asked which height you would prefer I will order the basic height of 4 to 4.5 inch. Again if you want lower heels it is best to contact me with a request for a lower heel and inform me of what height you are looking for instead as well as adding that height desired in the notes section at purchase.

As follows unless otherwise discussed the basic heights of heel or wedge selection is as follows: Chunky platform heel:4-5 inch, peep toe heels: 4-5 inch, regular heels: 4-5 inch, wedges: 4-5 inch, sandal wedges: 3-5 inch. Prices vary based on shoe style, availability of fabric, and/or fabric type. But please remember that I am able to get pretty much any height desired. So please do not hesitate to contact me about a height request.

Please be aware that canvas sneakers, slip on sneakers, and flats do not come in half sizes. Because of this Unless already made aware I will order the appropriate size for your order that will fit the best for you. As an example if you are a 6.5 then a size 7 will be ordered since there are no half sizes made in those 3 styles. If you have questions about this prior to ordering please feel free to message me and I can help the best I can!

Note that I have listed a variety of fabric designs that I have available. Prices may vary on each listing based on the designs uniqueness or availability as well as the price of that specific design for me to acquire. These price differences have already been listed and adjusted accordingly. Please remember if you are interested or looking for a design I may not show you can message me with that inquiry and I will do my best to find that design for you.

~Note that orders for Converse are for authentic Converse and not faux and sadly do not come in wide sizes as well as the canvas style sneakers which are also not available in wide sizes. Unfortunately they just do not make wides in those styles.
~If you are wanting a men's size sneaker in any of the designs listed please complete order as normal, picking design, style, & size and leave a note at purchase informing me that the size requested is for men's not women's. Same follows for kids sizes unless you do not see that size you might need. In that case just send me a "request custom order" and inform me of all the information for you order.
After placing your order I will acquire your shoe style requested and then start on customizing them. Orders will be finished between 4 to 6 weeks.

Added glitter and writing designs are free to add with order on shoe designs. If you would like this added detail please just leave note at purchase with the design you are desiring and I will let you know if I am able to do that request.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a geeky day!!

Additional policies and FAQs
I have purchased and continue to purchase unique and custom printed fabrics resulting in a vast variety of designs to choose from. All fabrics I purchased are purchased from various legitimate sites/stores that are believed to have the right to sell said fabric design. If however a site has not gotten these rights I will remove the design because it has not gotten the approved usage for that copyright. Please note that I have not made any of the FABRICS shown and therefore the fabric designs themselves are a product of that company, etc. In some cases the photo may only show the fabric available because there has not yet been an order to make a shoe as of yet.
Prices may vary based on fabric design chosen. Some patterns are either rare or more expensive because they are custom printed. Prices have been adjusted for this reason.

If you have a certain idea of fabric for your custom shoes you would like and you do not see a picture of it please feel free to message me and I can most likely find said item and get started on your custom shoe!
