If you haven’t bought a Valentine’s Day gift for your sweetie, this giveaway may be up your alley. Shoes Of Prey, a site that lets you design and order custom-made womens shoes online, is offering a lucky TechCrunch reader a $290 gift certificate to use on the site (that’s the value of the most expensive pair of shoes and shipping on Shoes of Prey). You may remember the Australian startup from this year’s Crunchies, where Shoes of Prey was a finalist in the “Best Bootstrapped Startup” category.
Founded by two ex-Googlers, Mike Knapp and Michael Fox, Shoes of Prey is every shoe-lover’s dream; the site offers the ability to choose a design (ballet flat, pointy toe shoe, wedge etc.) You can then customize your pair of shoes with heel size, design, bows, type of leather and more. Prices range from $180 for flats to $280 for two-inch heels. The startup says that it will be adding more types of fabric and designs this year.
In order to win the gift certificate, retweet this post and make sure to include the short URL link as well as the #crunch hashtag. Please only tweet the message once, anyone tweeting repeatedly will be disqualified. We’ll sort through all of the tweets and pick one randomly for the win.
Shoes of Prey creates beautiful bespoke women’s shoes, designed by you. Using our online designer, you choose the heel, toe, fabric, leather, color and embellishments. We then hand-make the shoes for you and ship them to just about anywhere in the world.
