It is common these days to simply buy ready-made shoes that suits one’s needs and that is not a bad idea; but made to order shoes can serve better purpose than ready made shoes for many reasons.
They can match your specific taste, quality, design, texture and aesthetics. Imagine ordering a shoe with a specific type of leather, sole or design. To order a custom made shoe is the way to go especially for special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, red carpets and so on.
Custom made shoes can be unique to you, thus, offering a relief from the mass production craze that dominates the shoe market today. Shoe makers on average make a average of 2500 copies of the same shoe, making it certain that many people out-there have the same shoe design as you. A bad idea on occasions when you want to look special and unique.
Made to order shoes are more fitting and fashionable because the focus is on your specific size, taste, themes and colour; the same way a new haircut looks on you.
Finally, custom made shoes are usually stronger and tend to have better quality that lasts longer than mass produced shoes.
