Now, you may be saying that there are more than enough shoe blogs, but that’s just crazy talk. You can’t have too many shoes, so how can you have too many shoe blogs?

You might be surprised at how many people make a living by painting designs on shoes. Normally I avoid these people. I know it takes skill and creativity to painstakingly cover a shoe with hand-painted… things, and sometimes the results are quite charming. But the finished product always seems to fall into one of two categories: super-sweet feminine pretty, or elementary school art project. I can’t do either. But now Cocopunkz have gone and made me change my mind about hand painted shoes.
I studied shoe design in London about a million years ago, but for various reasons never worked as a designer. Recently I decided to focus my obsession with shoes into a website that would provide information about independent shoe designers and retailers.
