I was lucky enough to partake in the Upper Street Shoe design experience at the beginning of the year. My beautiful shoes are complimented each time I wear them! Upper Street have now designed an easy-to-use ipad app, allowing you to design your shoes on the go!
The stylish and beautifully crafted app - designed exclusively for iPad is the first ever portable luxury shoe studio, every aspect of the shoe is designed by the customer – from the style and heel height, to the toe design and strap options. Users can select from an inspiring array of materials, colours and textures and even embellish their creations with studs or Swarovski jewel clusters. The studio’s 360-degree 3D Shoe Designer allows customers to see a true-to-life view of their shoe design, which will then be lovingly handcrafted and delivered directly to their door within just six weeks.
The beauty of Shoe Designer is that women can start designing as soon as inspiration strikes - taking a photo when out and about to inspire a new pair of shoes, or get comfy on the sofa and design shoes at their leisure. Or even taking the app along to a dress fitting, or that special shopping trip, to ensure that every important outfit is perfectly matched to a pair of utterly unique, handmade shoes.
Shoe Designer also includes Shared Collections, which allows users to build, save and share a collection of their favourite shoe designs with friends as they create their ideal shoe wardrobe. Once shared, friends can comment on the collections or ‘love’ the designs within the app, bringing an end to agonising over which pair to buy. Designs can be further shared via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or any other social network, spreading the shoe love far and wide.
Upper Street’s co-founder, Julia Grinham, introduces the in-app offer, “To launch Shoe Designer we are offering an exclusive one day promotion. Customers who download our app by Thursday 1st November will be sent an offer code for 50% OFF any pair of shoes ordered by Monday 5th November. We hope this will inspire women to try designing their own shoes, building a collection of designs to choose from.”
Sister to Julia and co-founder Katy Chandler adds, “Our customers have been asking us ‘When are you launching an app?’ pretty much since we started and we are more than happy to oblige. The desire to be able to design on the go is a powerful one. Women who visit Upper Street have really caught the designing bug and Shoe Designer will give them the flexibility to be creative away from the confines of their laptop or computer.”
