The only thing better than custom-made shoes? Custom-made shoes without the wait. At Morgan Miller’s boutique in Aventura, Fla., shoppers can create their own styles in less than an hour with the help of design consultants—and, of course, an on-site cobbler. First step: sole selection—for example, cork wedges, stilettos or clogs. Neophyte designers also pick from a wide range of materials, including alligator, python, metallic and patent leather. And finally, embellishments ranging from Swarovski crystals to cabochons to metal chains complete the bespoke look (from $95 to $400 at Morgan Miller, Aventura Mall, Aventura; 305.932.3451).
