Nothing brings the perfect outfit together like a good pair of shoes. However, finding the perfect pair is often a daunting task. We are all too familiar with the dismay that occurs when your dream shoe is sold out, not available in your size, or maybe the height just isn’t right. Too often we head home only to be disappointed by the shoe hunt.
Next time you have the perfect ensemble in mind, skip the impending defeat and head directly to the Nordstrom Fashion Island/Shoes of Prey Studio in Newport Beach. Make your way to the women’s shoe floor and you’ll enter into shoe utopia where online shoe retailer Shoes of Prey recently launched a create-and-order shoe studio.
