    The Story of DeirDesigns!

    This is my shop

    About me and my work:


    My shoes are mostly lace-ups of varying heights. I make a few styles of boot including one wrap around boot with a Velcro closure, and one style of Mary Janes with others in the works!

     

    **That said, I must make it clear that these shoes are Not for people who need special orthopedic adjustments! I can make shoes that your inserts will fit into, but I do not do adjustments for pronation or supination.**

     

    Most of these shoes involve a sewing machine for some stitching of the upper, and the rest is all by hand.
    My shoes begin with duct tape casts of one or both of your feet to assure that they fit you perfectly. The style of shoe is drawn onto the cast, the cast is cut up and made into a paper pattern and the shoe is made from that. You get to pick which leathers I use, what color thread and many of the details of how your shoes will look. They will fit you like no other shoes! I use thick bullhide and American bison and occasionally I use cowhide. For the soles I have durable Vibram of differing weights and thickness. The vibram I choose has great tread for non slipping. Any of my shoes can be made with a small heel or can have a flat bottom.


    I’m happy to accommodate inserts or orthotics if you usually wear them ( bring them with you).
    The time I spend with you choosing style, materials, making the casts, and consulting during construction, and of course the time it takes to make them is included in the price of the shoes.
     

    Im open to price negotiation if you really want shoes and my price is just too high for your budget.....so Haggle and see what you can get!!

    I have a strictly No Return, No refund policy. Once you give me money and we choose a style from my collection and make a cast there is no turning back.

    There may be an extra charge for sizes over 11.5 of $50-100 depending on shoe size.

    There is an extra charge of $150- $200 to get a leather type or color I do not currently have available.

     

    In the gallery I will show you the more recent styles first. ( New styles coming on line soon! ) Keep in mind that most of what you will look at here has been styled and shaped for my foot and it will look different when the cast is made on your foot.

    When you see a style you like, think about various color possibilities as you look at the other styles. There are other colors than the ones I typically use so if you have a color in mind that you don't see here I may be able to get it. There will be an extra charge of $150 or more (depending on type of leather) to get a different color than I offer. I now stock a true red bullhide, a purple and a turquoise and a couple of nubuck and suede options.

  • You look over the photos.

    Look at the style names.

    Look at the different colors of leather available.

    Then, once you have some idea of which style, leather, and color combination you would like.....you contact me!
