About Steppin Out
Since 1979 Steppin’ Out has been providing handmade shoes and unique footwear for film, theatre and opera. We have been a trusted leader in bespoke shoemaking, and the source that many theatrical and film production companies turn to when outfitting their star’s feet.

We also assist individuals looking for quality, durable and stylish footwear. So if you’re require something out of the ordinary for your theatrical or film production, or just yourself, we are sure to be able to help you. Check out our gallery to see some of the many different examples of footwear we have produced. Contact us today to discover how we can put your feet in one-of-a-kind footwear.

If you have an idea that you want to have footwear produced overseas, but don’t know where to begin, Steppin’ Out can make a production sample and provide the specifications for manufacturers. This avoids spending a lot of time, effort and the cost of trying to explain your idea through an interpreter. It also allows you to preview and market test your footwear. We offer personalised consultations or we can tailor the entire sample making package for you.
