Girls can get creative this summer with cool shoes from Austin’s Valentina

Everyone loves a pair of new summer slip-on shoes. Austin-based Valentina shoes from the mind of Tina Hambly expanded to allow girls to personalize their shoes.

Girls have created everything from a celebration of a love of a unicycle to a statement of support for a cousin with cancer to a shoutout to Louisiana State University.

You can make them for any occasion including for the flower girl at a wedding or the birthday girl. Sizes come in 11 girls to 6 women’s. You can add words, pictures or monograms. The espadrilles are $32, the personalization $8.
