I was starting to wonder why so many handmade shoes came from Israel. Turns out, there is a shoe making and designing school there! How awesome!
Which brings me to Olive Thomas, a young lady from there. Printed shoes. HECK YEAH!! I also adore her classic shapes with a unique twist, and great color/leather combo choices, all available between sizes 5 to 10.5.
Gotta love it, right!? :)
The craftsmanship of some artisans is sometimes so overwhelming to me!
It’s pretty much the emotion I had while stumbling into Tamar Shalem‘s shop. He offers beautiful handmade shoes and boots made of leather, and skill, and patience.
Sure, it’s not a Payless price tags. But honestly, it’s pretty much the same prices that you’d pay for a lot of the mass made leather shoes out there. Hence, there’s really no reason to deprive yourself of a pair! ;)
(Also, use the code “freeshippingww” at checkout, for, well, free shipping worldwide.)
Holy crap! I just fell in LOVE.
With Love Jules Leather Studio, to be precise.
Western Canadian Julie makes leather goodies look just so cool! Including boat shoes! OH! Perfect colors, perfect laser etching designs, perfect relaxed style. Handmade bliss. Lovin’ itttttt.
Are these felted slippers or shoes? It’s yours to decide since there’s a few soles option available over at Ing00te from Lithuania!
Used for these is Australian merino wool keeps your toes warm when it’s cold, and cool when the weather’s warm. Perfect! :)

Yesterday was the first day of fall. And even if I’ve been really nice about buying shoes this summer, as I talked about it a few days ago, a new season wipes the board clean (or so I tell myself…)! lol!
So, last night I was wandering on Montreal’s St-Denis street with Sandy, just walking, talking lots, visiting bead shops (a tradition!) and used books and cd stores (finally got Maroon5’s and Joss Stone’s latest CDs!), when we stopped to look at the window of Renée Levesque’s jewelry shop.
And BAM! There they were, in the next door’s shop window, the Most. Perfect. Shoes. Ever. !! Some awesome comfy brown everyday flats from Bamboo, with a piqué pattern looking just like a bag, and a little *bling* chain for the jeweler in me! My name was written on them! And at only 50 bucks, how could I resist!!
So there, fall season is starting nicely with a perfect-weather-somewhat-busy Montreal night, with a perfect best friend to walk around, and the perfect fall shoes! :P
Talking about Bamboo, they have many great styles of shoes & boots , check these out available from online store CutesyGirl (they ship international!).
Many of you know, I am a shoe fanatic! And it’s really hard for me to not buy shoes when I enter a shop, literally! I have been a VERY nice girl this summer, I bought… 1 (ONE!) pair of light blue flowery fabric summer flats, that I DID wear almost all the time! lol
But now, I bought another pair… I couldn’t resist when I saw the handmade Mary Jane shoes in Netamir‘s Etsy shop!
I mean, come on, it was a given…
I love handmade + I love shoes + I love beige = I NEED THOSE SHOES!
They came in the mail yesterday from Israël, and I adore them! They are so comfortable too, and the inside sole can be taken out and washed separately.
At first, I asked Neta to not put the straps on, thinking I would like them more without the “Mary Jane part” of the shoes. She still sent me the straps, just in case! And I’m glad she did! I felt they were coming out too much when walking, so I sewed the straps on, and voilà! Perfect
The thing is, they are available in 12 colors!!! Pretty mustard yellow, vibrant red and lovely white, to name a few… How I am gonna cope with that fact now?? lol
