They're gold-medal winners and world champions - and we're delighted to announce that Anna Watkins and Katherine Grainger (pictured in the middle, above) are also fans of Shoes of Prey!
Since teaming up in 2010, the pair have become the golden girls of English rowing and their result in the double sculls event saw them hold off Australian rivals, Kim Crow and Brooke Pratley, to take the sport's highest honour.
Off the water, Katherine and Anna are fans of chic, feminine shoes that flatter while remaining practical (and are available in their size, of course) so we knew they'd be thrilled with two pairs of custom-made heels from Shoes of Prey.
Here's what Katherine had to say:
"The whole package was incredibly presented in a black box, and everything just looked really classy and really stunning. Plus, the shoes themselves are beautifully made.
"The whole female squad was there when we opened them and everyone was bowled over. We have a stunning six foot four, ex-model in the team who just loves shoes and she asked all about the label. Another girl was looking at your website before we left. We're delighted to spread the word about Shoes of Prey."
Here's what Anna had to say:
"I wanted to thank you for the amazing shoes you sent, both pairs are absolutely fantastic! It was so exciting to get the parcel and they were so beautifully packaged too. They are my favourite pair of shoes; the best I've ever had."
Congratulations to both girls on their success and we can't wait to share more photos of them in their new heels!
