How about custom-designing your own shoes and have them made in front of you for less than 15 minutes? I am not talking about sky-high runway stilettos or pricey brand name shoes. If you are a fan of artsy and carved wooden wedges, then you might also fall for my recent love-at-first-sight find.
At $25 a pair, you create your own shoes by choosing your base and strap. I had mine custom-made by the owner herself, Kelly, who recently opened her kiosk at Pearlridge Center (2/F just outside MAC and Sephora) and Ala Moana Center (2nd Level, in front of Nordstrom Coffee Bar). **Oahu, Hawaii**
Kelly said she designs the shoes but the carving is outsourced in Vietnam. These are made from birchwood, they are lightweight to my standard since I am a huge fan of chunky and 4-inch wedges with weight twice as much as these. Okay, I’m petite so I need to catch up with my love’s 6-foot frame, yay!

|This was my original choice. But I had a mental account
of my shoes. Nope, I want something more artsy…
I was looking for a simpler strap to balance the wood design as I am not into all-out screaming Ey, I have arrived! I also suggested to diversify her collection by including some thong wedges. Finally, I settled and bought this pair for myself…
|Haha! It can be a wall decor too!|
|Fab shoes in the tropics!|
