Mallory Musante Shoes: Hand painted beauties

Mallory Musante Shoes is owned by Mallory Musante who hand-paints her shoes. The process involves removing the original shoe cover, before applying a design, then adding a protective top coat. Her designs range from bold to understated, with colorful, geometric shapes are a recurring theme. She uses pop-up shops i.e. a store open for a limited time to test the feasibility of a permanent storefront and interact face-to-face with customers. Musante also sells online , in a few local boutiques and at fashion events such as trunk shows and StyleWeek Providence. Shoes range in price from $165 to $250.
