Show Us Your Shoes!

So, remember when our studio was a big mess of glitter, feathers and glue?

Well, here’s what that was all about:

This year, the Miss America Pageant changed locations from Las Vegas to its roots in Atlantic City, and brought back the traditional “Show Us Your Shoes” parade, in which each contestant dresses up in a costume that represents her own state, with decked out shoes to match. 

The current Miss Washington, Reina Almon, asked us to help create her dream costume…a Seattle Seahawk!

Now, we know how to do shoes, but the handmade wings and mask were a daunting (but really fun!) challenge. 

We’re pretty proud of the results:






Note: These shoes were created as a gift to Miss Washington. Hourglass Footwear is in no way affiliated with the NFL or Seattle Seahawks.


Congrats to Reina and her team for a job well done!
