OK these definitely took as long as everyone warned, but I’m finally done my crystal-strass shoes!
The finished product
[Please ignore the tights – I just happened to be wearing them when I finished!]
They are so sparkly in person – look at their reflection on the floor:
And a few progress pictures from along the way…

At this point, I’m not really sure how long it took me to finish the shoes. Maybe somewhere in the realm of 40-60 hours? It wasn’t too bad, since I did it while watching TV and relaxing, and I spaced it over about 4 months.
As for supplies, I bought the shoes and crystals on ebay. The shoes were $20 and it was ~$30 for 6000 crystals. This seemed pretty reasonable compared to most the crystal prices I came across. THe glue was $4 from Michaels.
