Incorporating your family (or future family) tartan is both a beautiful and meaningful alternative to the traditional wedding shoe. Designing your own tartan shoes at Upper Street is a great way to surprise your husband on your wedding day by using the same tartan as his kilt (it’s not unheard of for the grooms to fill up with emotion at the sight of their tartan walking down the aisle towards them!)
We can turn your tartan into any shoe of our 8 core shape options. Most brides favour a full-cut pointed or almond-toe court to make the most of the material pattern. To design tartan shoes simply select your shoe shape and then select one of our sample tartans from the material list. This will give you an idea of what your shoe will look like in the most popular colours, green, grey or red, of course your shoes will be made in your tartan.
If you don't already have a tartan in mind for your shoes the vibrant red of the Royal Stewart looks beautiful at a winter wedding, while the dark navy and green of a Black Watch tartan is a classic choice all year round.
We require 1 square meter of material to make a pair of beautiful handmade shoes. There is a premium charge of £60 to prepare your tartan to be turned into shoes which is added at the checkout. Once you have chosen your tartan please send this to Upper Street London, 85 Mortimer Street, London W1W 7SN and email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know your tartan is on the way!
Why not read our bridal customer stories to find out more about how brides have created their own beautiful bridal shoes using their own materials and see beautiful photographs of finished tartan shoes on the big day.
