Converse has taken their sweet DC shoes to a new level–in a couple weeks, you’ll be able to get custom-order shoes featuring Batman, Catwoman, Riddler, and Joker prints and corresponding colors. Put the print wherever you want, change the colors of the racing stripes, eyelets and more, and even “tag” it with your ID. I’m eyeing this Catwoman print–which one would you get?
A huge thank you to Lisa for showing me these amazing shoes, handmade by Etsy seller Aisha Voya. The shoes are adorable, glittery flats that can be worn with jeans or dressed up for a night out on the town. With designs from Mario, Sailor Moon, Pokemon, Star Wars, My Little Pony and more, there’s something for every geeky lady.
Shoes range from $60-80 and are custom made in your size. Visit Etsy shop aishavoya to see everything available!
The Hunger Games have been doing an amazing job with their marketing, especially through their fashion and culture blog, Capitol Culture. They’ve been profiling characters from the movie along with real-life designers to create a realistic portrayal of the Capitol. Taking it one step further, they’re holding design contests for wannabe Capitol designers. The first was a shoe design contest, where the winner received a pair of shoes. Today, the next contest was announced: makeup. Design your best makeup look for the Capitol (or your favorite District), and you’ll be entered to win a MAC giftcard. Pretty sweet! See all the info in the email below:

Guys. The day has come. Awesome, Back To The Future inspired shoes are here. (But power laces are still a few years off.)
The shoes are currently being auctioned on Ebay, with proceeds going towards the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. If you have an extra few thousand to spend and want some shoes that’ll guarantee you’ll stand out, then go for it.
