These homegrown brands make footwear chic, suave and oh-so-cool. From hand-painted wearable art to a 100 per cent customised digitally printed art, these shoes have them all.
Take a look at how you can add edge to your footwear collection this season…
Kolkata-based artist Shalini Sengupta knows how to glam up your kicks. Hand painting each and every pair, she turns shoes into one-of-a-kind wearable art. Customise and pick a design, wait a few weeks and you will have the most spectacular pair of sneakers to call your own.
This unique footwear brand takes customisations to the next level. First, pick your shoe of choice — high ankle shoes, slip-on sneakers, lace-ups, mules or slip-ons. Once that is done, go on to design each and every section of the shoe according to your taste — . you can pick colours, patterns, and prints to add to your shoe. You can even add text or images, which they will print digitally. The experience of customising your kicks is unique and almost like an art project. Let your imagination run wild (all puns intended)!
If you love cutesy prints, designs and shoes, this brand is for you. Every pair is hand painted with utmost love and care, and their designs are gorgeous. Available in slip-ons and lace-ups, these shoes are vibrant and extremely comfortable to wear. If you love quirky motifs, you will love the variety they have, especially the ones where both the shoes are painted differently!
Be it festive wear or wedding ensembles, this brand knows how to make the perfect complementary shoes. These customisable hand-painted juttis, heels and sliders are perfect for all your Indo-Western party picks. The vibrant, quirky pieces also make great gifts for your bride or groom squad and ideal souvenirs for friends and family too.
If you are experimenting with the sari and/or are a #SneakerGirl, to boot, your search for glam sneakers ends here. This Kolkata brand specialises in creating one-of-a-kind sneakers for you to flaunt with your Indian wear. With hand embroidery and zari work, these sneakers are OTT, we love them. If you’re a bride looking for quirky footwear to wear with your shaadi ensemble, they can even customise sneakers to match your look.
