Advice and tips on designing your made-to-order shoes

Shoes with bows

Today bows carry cutesy and feminine connotations, but it has not always been this way. The bow is a style with roots firmly planted in menswear, and it’s evolution from a mere men’s formalwear accessory to the iconic feminine symbol that it has become today, makes the bow the perfect demonstration of woman’s ability to adopt iconic styles and make them their own – something, which we at Upper Street, happen to love.
 
Let us help you work this iconic style into your wardrobe by adding a bow to your perfect pair of Upper Street shoes; whether that’s a pointed court, peep toe platform, sandal or ballet flat. We’ll help you make the perfect shoe that is right for you.


Play with contrasting colours on our revolutionary shoe designer to create an eye-grabbing shoe that’s perfect for those special occasions that demand your looking just a little bit glamorous. Sumptuous suede in feminine fuchsia and rich chocolate will leave you ready for the limelight.
 
Or opt for a classic ballet flat; a must-have wardrobe staple perfect for completing your weekend errands in style. We love these classic nude patent ballet flat designed with a glossy black patent bow on its front for an added touch of feminine flare.
 
If you’re feeling a little more daring, try a high heel in exotic teal and gold snakeskin with a front bow. We also love these heels made from fun zebra animal and designed with a front bow, which can be perfectly paired with a plain dress.
