The purple side...

A little about the brilliant Joey Limandri of Redo My Shoe:

Redo My Shoe came into fruition in August of 2010, an idea originated after Joseph LiMandri stumbled upon a blog that featured pictures of people’s DIY jobs on their Christian Louboutin shoes, executed mainly with Swarovski crystals. Needless to say, he was intrigued. Furthermore, he recognized a gap – albeit, niche – in the market; a service that enabled the client to customize their own shoes. It had been done before, as we’ve all scene. But LiMandri wanted his venture to focus strictly on high-end, contemporary footwear. Three years later, he is now at the forefront in embellishing designer shoes, purses, perfume bottles, wallets, bowties and more with Swarovski Elements rhinestones. No other company offers the service and craftsmanship you receive with Redo My Shoe. He has successfully established a business that encourages customization in an otherwise mass-produced marketplace. With over 125 completed pairs under his belt, his business is booming.
Happy Mother’s Day week, everyone!
