“Every woman can have her dream shoe wardrobe,
and manufacture on demand is the future of retail.”
We’re at ground level of something big, and with that comes opportunities for the right people to rise with us.
WHAT WE DO
Shoes of Prey is a global retail brand, both online and offline that allows women to design their perfect shoes which we custom make and deliver worldwide.
We are democratizing the industry, and handing the power to the customer to decide what they want, and when they want it.
Our vision represents a change in the way women shop for shoes, and we’re poised to take off.
Pooling the knowledge drawn from their experiences as ex lawyers and Google executives, Shoes of Prey was founded in 2009 by three entrepreneurs who wanted to do something big.
The company quickly turned into a multi million dollar global retailer and is still growing at a rapid pace with the backing of top tier venture capital firms.
IS IT YOU?
We value leaders and are looking for entrepreneurial and energetic minds to join us in the journey of realising our vision.
There’s a lot of freedom (with responsibility), lots of opportunities to be made and you’ll need to embrace the chaos.
You’ll be working with the very best.
If you think big, work hard and try new things, you might just be our next team member.
