31 Stunning Shoes by Milly J Designer Extraordinaire ...

You may not have seen or heard of shoes by Milly J, but after seeing her wonderful creations here, you’’ll be wondering why. Milly J is a British shoe designer (and now sculpture artist) who makes the most incredible creations for feet. Her range includes ready to wear, haute couture and custom/made to order. Shoes by Milly J have been described as "Art to Walk In" and "Walking Art" and here's why:

1 Dali

Dali There are many inspirations for the shoes by Milly J. High Heels are her forté but she works in all shoe styles. This pair is an homage to the surrealist painter Salvadore Dali. You can't really see from this angle but the front is embellished by Dali's signature mustache.

2 Licorice Allsorts

Licorice Allsorts A riot of color that is unmistakably a tableau of one of Britain’s favorite candies. The candies are modeled by hand in clay. I still love them and my favorite has always been the pinwheel that I would unravel before eating. Anyway I digress…

3 Social Media

Social Media Milly J’s shoes tackle all subjects including everything that’s on trend. Want to declare your love for social media? You need these white wedges. Milly J can make these with your own Twitter name!
Price at time of writing £246.00.

4 Tap Shoe

Tap Shoe Not what you were expecting huh? Recognize all the stylings of an art deco bathroom? Fabulous. I know Milly J shoes are wearable art, but I have to ask, where does the plug go when you’re wearing them? (Oh! I just learned that’s a sculpture not a pair to wear – that makes sense.)
Sculpture collection - Price on request

5 Tiffany’s

Tiffany’s Not all of Milly J’s shoes are stacked heels. Here’s a charming low wedge in the signature Tiffany’s color. I could totally see Audrey Hepburn in these. What you can't see in the picture is the front embellishment is a little plaque that can be customized with a photograph of your own choosing.
Price at time of writing £217.00

6 Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

Mad Hatter’s Tea Party British (former glamour) model Jodie Marsh owns a pair of these. She appeared on a breakfast TV magazine program wearing them and brought some great publicity to custom shoes by Milly J.

8 Diets Always Start Tomorrow

Diets Always Start Tomorrow Now there’s a sentiment we call relate to. The shoes are covered in those yummy things we know we shouldn't be indulging in and they have the look of piles of cotton candy, fondant icing and buttercream.
Price at time of writing £241.00

9 Citrus

Citrus These were the first shoes designed by Milly J I ever saw. She actually wore them for her edition of the UK version of The Voice and they got more attention than her singing during the judges’ comments. There were pictures of her shoes (not her body or beautiful face) in the newspapers the next day.

12 Musician

Musician With the music score print and the guitar and microphone embellishments, the theme is undeniably obvious.

14 In the Army

In the Army Now that's what you call a pair of combat boots. I really can just see the look on people's faces when they realize you've got little soldiers crawling up your heels. So very clever.

Duck Boots As cute as can be. Not available to buy as they are now exhibits in the Northampton Shoe Museum (in my home town.)

27 Down the Caff

Down the Caff (Caff is a shortened/slang word for café in the UK.) How precious are these? I just adore the way she has made room at the table for the tiny Louis Vuitton handbag and doesn't that all day breakfast look scrummy.

28 Top It off

Top It off I love Milly J's own description of these shoes. She says they are perfect for "cougars who love popping the cherries of innocent men." With their creamy cupcakeness and animal print, I don't think you need to be a cougar. Pussy cats can wear them too.

31 Check Your Breasts

Check Your Breasts The sculptured bra shoe which features a pair of breasts in a lacy bra was designed for a breast cancer charity campaign with 20% of sale proceeds going to Breast Cancer Care. Imagine looking down at your feet and seeing two pairs of breasts. How confusing ^_^

What do you think about the Milly J collection? Would you ever pay for a pair of custom designer shoes?
