Bloggers as Shoe Designers

London based shoe company Six, makers of shoes for Opening Ceremony bSTORE and Ksubi, recently teamed up with 6 of their favorite bloggers for a project called SIXby6bloggers. They asked said bloggers to design their dream shoe that would go into very limited production (20 pair each). Here’s who they picked and what they dreamed up…

And the launch party in Paris…

What do you think? Although I would never wear them, I have to give Susie Bubble credit for her design. They are totally her and totally unique!
  The Cherry Blossom Girl’s shoe is also very her. Pretty and feminine and something I could see on a commercial level.
  Caroline’s shoe is obviously her nod to the uber coveted Chloe studded ankle boot from 2008. They still go for thousands on ebay! Her original sketch had the buckles on them, so I’m glad she decided against a direct knockoff for a project like this.
  I like the Man Repeller’s booties. Simple, clean with some fun studs to make them edgier.
If you’re interested in purchasing any of these shoes you can find them exclusively on SixLondon and

It’s so interesting to see non shoe designers designing shoes. I admit that I like hearing them say things like “It’s not as easy as it looks.” And that’s just one shoe! Imagine a whole collection or two. ;)

I am currently stressing over the design process myself. I have a fast approaching deadline for both my Bebe and Cece L’amour collections and living at my parents house is less than inspiring, let me tell you.
Luckily I’m moving NEXT WEEK (!!!!) and am so excited! I can’t wait to get back to outfit posts and to be in my own space again. Hope you’re all having a nice weekend.

    a blogger gets to design her own shoe, and she “designs” a straight up knockoff? i guess one shouldn’t expect all fashion bloggers to have that much originality :\ on a good note, it makes it that much more apparent how much juice you got to get flowing to make a full collection of gorgeous and special shoes. ;)

    I can’t say I’m a fan of any of them. I much prefer a girly shoe. The ones with the bow were OK but nothing special. I love your shoes. What would you have designed Celine?

    It’s so interesting to see what they came up with. I like Caroline’s booties the best but they’re all great.

    Good luck on your own designs/collections! At least you’ll be moving soon :)

    Hey girl. Good luck with your shoe collection–and your move. Very interesting post. I think I like Caroline’s design the best at least for something I would personally wear, though Alix’s is pretty too. (Your pic is making me regret not getting those Chloe booties while I had the chance!)
