tinkerbell.jpgGood quality home-made shoes are a rarity, since so few amateur designers are skilled in making footwear. But Spiro Creations are an exception, making really pretty and charming ballet flats and other basic shoes in brilliant, bright-coloured soft leather.

Handmade shoes have always been the best-kept secret of people with non-standard sizes. Each pair of these 'Tinkerbell' shoes are made to order, so you can guarantee a great fit. $175 on Etsy
