Custom Made Shoes

Has anyone ever had shoes custom made? The only two styles that fit me right and that I like (Vans Influence and Vans Graph) have been out of production for quite some time and now they are impossible to find for sale anywhere. And, my current ones are wearing out more each day. So, I was thinking, are there places that custom make shoes? I’m wondering if there would be any sort of business where I could give them my old shoes, and they could take them apart to use as a template, and then build me identical new ones. Do such businesses even exist? If so, how do I find one? How much does it cost?

Similarly, if anyone knows where to get ahold of the above mentioned shoes (in a size 13) that would be awesome.
