Design your own pink high heels to support breast cancer organisations

pink high heels to support breast cancer awarenessOctober is officially breast cancer awareness month, and what better way to support this cause than by designing your own pair of pink, feminine high heels to wear?

Pink has been the color of breast cancer awareness since the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation first handed out bright pink visors to breast cancer survivors running in its Race for the Cure in late 1990. Already this month worldwide fundraising efforts have seen the purchase of millions of pink bracelets, t-shirts, wigs, skirts, dresses, leggings, jeans, rings and countless other items of clothing and apparel.

This year high heel lovers can go one step better, not just by buying but by actually designing their own pink high heeled shoes. The opportunity comes courtesy of Shoes of Prey, a retailer that allows women to design their own shoes online. The shoes are then custom made and shipped to the designer’s doorstep.

Pink shoes support breast cancer awarenessThis year, in support of “Pinktober,” Shoes of Prey has announced that for every order of pink shoes made from October 1 to 31, it will donate $25 to its partner breast cancer charities: Bright Pink in the USA, Breakthrough in the UK and Pink Hope in Australia (where the company is based).

Best of all, Shoes of Prey is offering free shipping throughout October 2012 to celebrate its third birthday! To get started on your pink design, head to Shoes of Prey’s shoe designer tool. Alternatively, if you’d like to try some of the site’s pre-designed pink shoes you can access those via the Shoes of Prey blog. The high heels we’ve featured in this article are the pink peep-toe pump, a one-strap pink high heel sandal and the pink snakeskin d’orsay pump, all $AU300 with free shipping from Shoes of Prey.

Jimmy Choo is pretty in pink for fall / winter 2012

Pink Jimmy Choo sandalsPretty pink high heels are some of the highlights of Jimmy Choo’s fall / winter 2012 collection, which is now available online. Actually, strictly speaking, the three high heels we’ve chosen to highlight are all branded as magenta or fuchsia rather than plain old pink, but we won’t let that bother us too much.

The Kairo sandal we’ve highlighted above is a masterpiece of delicate design and detail of the kind we’ve come to expect from the very top-end Jimmy Choo shoes. This 4.8 inch high heel comes with a price tag to match its craftmanship though: it retails for €1395.

Anouk by Jimmy ChooOur second pick is the fabulous fuchsia Anouk pump. We’ve previously covered this pump, commenting that the Anouk looks very similar in shape to Christian Louboutin’s pigalle (also a 5 inch heel).  The Anouk first burst onto the scene as part of Jimmy Choo’s Cruise 2012 collection in black, chilli red and klein. For fall and winter 2012 the Anouk is also available in fuchsia, turquoise and electric blue for €395.

Jimmy Choo crystalRounding out our pink picks is Tame, a bright fuchsia suede platform with Swarovski crystal detailing. The crystals don’t just coat the tip of the toe of the shoe and the heel – they also cover the visible part of the sole as well. Tame has a 5 inch heel and is available for  €1695 from Jimmy Choo.
