Cover-ups are so on-trend (and comfy) for the coming Autumn Winter 2014 season. If feminine ballerina-style flats and pump heels aren’t quite your style, these menswear-inspired Prada flatform brogues may be just the right shoes for you.
Best of all: You’ll be able to get these women’s shoes made just for you via Prada’s Made-to-Order shoe service, available in Singapore for the month of October.

First seen at the Prada Spring Summer 2011 runway show, the Prada women’s wingtip brogues were a major sell-out at the peak of “mannish” shoe fever, when everyone had to have a pair of such lace-ups too. Now they’re back in crayon-like colours for Fall Winter 2014, with a sportier feel thanks to its thick striped sole and the sprightly block colours.
Through this new shoe service, you’ll be able to handpick nearly every colour detail of your Prada brogues, be it in single solid colour or in two-tone combinations like red with black or the “fashion ed” approved sleek black-and-white.
According to Prada, there are as many as 32 colour variations possible. Choose from cobalt blue, a fire engine red and more of the vivid autumnal hues available this season. You’ll also get to choose from three types of leather: brushed calf leather (as featured above), crocodile and python.
The flatform outsoles are also available in five striped colour schemes. For an extra personal touch, your initials can be stamped in gold on the shoe soles too.
These made-to-order shoes will be delivered to you in about 60 days after you have placed your order. Prices range from $1,900 for made-to-order Prada brogues in brushed calfskin to $3,980 for the same style in crocodile skin.
It may sound like a bit of an investment to get these Prada brogues custom-made, but with cover-ups and sportswear-inspired styles so on-trend, these shoes will be totally worth the price thanks to the many times you’ll re-wear them.
The Prada Made-to-Order shoe service will be available in Singapore at Prada Paragon, #01-45/46/47 from October 1 to 15, 2014 and Prada Ion Orchard, #01-01 and #02-15 from October 16 to 31, 2014.
