We love them, we desire them, we must have them.
There is something about the sole of a shoe that completes the soul of the character we portray. And so it is with our dolls, the shoes are the final touch that completes the personality, bringing a doll one step closer to life

I have had a fascination with shoes for a very long time. I used to sculpt tiny shoes out of polymer clay, before I made art dolls with tiny feet to place them on. Here are a few miniature shoes I made when I was 10 years old:

When making shoes for an art doll there are many things to consider…

Fairy shoes…


And sometimes it's best just to go with some warm, cozy socks...

However we choose to sole our dolls, they have an amazing ability to walk you through fantasy worlds, fairy realms, ancient times, unknown lands, sorrow, joy, fear, and silliness. If you'll just take a moment to walk in their shoes.
