Novato is based in Bellingham, Washington and specializes in limited edition apparel and one-of-a-kind shoe and hat designs. 

The Shoes

Custom - Hand-Painted - One of One

How It All Started

We’ve been hand-painting custom pieces of art for your feet since Novato’s beginning. Whether you work closely with us to design the perfect pair or you give us a theme and size and let us go to work, we can create a truly one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art that is yours’ and only yours’.

How it Works

  • Line up

Find CUSTOM SHOES DEPOSIT in the "Apparel" store. A $50 deposit gets you in the queue. At this point we’ll contact you and start talking some details, like shoe brand, style, size and design.

  • Commit

When your spot comes up, another $50 installment gets us started on your shoes. We work with you to finalize all the details as well as final pricing before we start painting.

  • Start your collection

Upon completion, you see your new shoes before you pay the remaining balance. Then you can pick them up at the shop or we will insured-ship them directly to your feet.

Check out the gallery to see what we’ve done in the past as well as get some ideas of pricing before cost. And remember, as all Novato shoes are one-of-a-kind, we CANNOT reproduce anything we’ve already done for previous collectors.
