Just messing around on Zazzle. Who didn’t love that gorgeous Miu Miu swallow-printed rhinestone-encrusted platform pump from their Spring 2010 show?
So I designed a similar black-on-baby-pink swallow print for a pair of sneakers on Zazzle. (I’ve been wanting to make a pair of custom sneaks for awhile, just the multiple layouts for the numerous parts of the shoe were pretty daunting. I gave up on matching the pattern across the seamlines, since it will be different for each size. If you have any design inclinations I urge you to try out their Keds Custom Shoes design tool! It’s really fun and the possibilities are limitless – you can customize the entire patten, as I did, or just choose color presets and the color of all the trims etc.) The shoe I chose is the Keds Women’s Lace-Up – and I’ve loaded it into my virtual store there, so anyone can buy their own pair too! I’ve set the pattern and allowed customization of the trims.
For my pair, I chose white trim, pink stitching, white laces, silver eyelets, white sole, and pink insole. Oh so many choices!
I can’t WAIT until they arrive and I can rock them out…first off, I’m switching out the laces to sparkly silver, and maybe pairing with some cuffed light blue denim shorts and a breezy, blousey white top? Or a black paperbag-waisted skirt and a chambray denim shirt? (With painted DIY Miu Miu collar, of course!)
If you’d like your own pair, they are available in my Zazzle store:
(The only bummer is custom sneaks take about 4 weeks to make. Totally worth the wait though – and they’ll arrive just as summer is upon us!)

I love Zazzle, and your shoes are great! I've designed some shoes on there as well (these are my favorites: http://www.zazzle.com/multicolor_zig_zag_lace_ups_shoes-167119156343384899 ), and I've found it to be fairly easy and rewarding. Since I'm a teenager with little/no money, I don't have seventy dollars at the moment, but when/if I do, I will probably be buying your shoes!
Good sneakers!!! Loving it!!!

Those look great! Now I want a pair. I have reached my shoe quota for the month (yes, I have been put on a shoe allowance *sigh*) But next month is only 2 short weeks away. 🙂
So cool! I had no idea that site existed! You may have already seen this, but Outsa Pop had this Miu Miu DIY on her flickr if you're interested:
And more of the cute little pink/black swallows, in manicure form!
Mehhh I wouldn't worry about it lol. While the boot DIY is closer to the Miu Miu shoes, I think the Keds are a more wearable item. After I read this post originally, I went back and looked through the Miu Miu SS10 collection and found another adorable item- the brooches! I put together a couple of pics for you (plus a DIY link)here:
@Zara: Those shoes are fun-looking! Great job! I'm now getting hooked on the custom shoes designer at Zazzle…but at over $60 per pair, I'm not sure how feasible ordering each pair I design would be. Ah well, a girl can dream, right?
@Mitr Friend: Thanks!
@Dissolved Girl: Yes, it's almost June – yay! I have also put myself on a clothing allowance…so I forewent clothing for the rest of the month in order to buy these SHOES!
@Alex: Actually I hadn't seen BleachBlack's DIY of those shoes. ARRRRRGH! Late to the game again! But everybody's really coveting this print lately – similar stuff is showing up everywhere. Maybe I should do one in pale blue with white birds??
Thank you for your comments!
Thanks for your comments!
@Alex: Thanks! Shall def. check those brooches out… 😀
I didn't even know you could do that…awesome! I may have to consider trying it out :o)
