Finding the perfect pair of wedding shoes can be, to put it bluntly, a pain in the proverbial. Most wedding shoes are a bit Mumsy (that small heel is designed to keep you comfy all day, but they don't half look a bit boring), and are always eye-wateringly expensive just because they are white and have the word 'wedding' attached to them.

So we were pretty excited to discover Figgie Shoes, a unique custom-made wedding shoe service, viaBuzzfeed.

Canadian artist Deborah Thomson hand-paints each shoe with personalised quotes, images and designs unique to each bride. Chatting to each bride-to-be about her personal style, Thomson has incorporated everything from handwritten letters, to illustrations of Paris.

“I ask for a list of approximately eight to twelve items they’d like incorporated into the design,” she said to BuzzFeed Life, “sometimes offering suggestions to help them think of meaningful things.”

Deborah's designs aren't cheap - they start at $598 - but they ship worldwide and you're paying for a truly unique pair of wedding shoes.
