I'm pretty sure that nearly every person who is obsessed with footwear has, at some point, thought they'd like to try their hand at designing their own shoes -- even if it's just for themselves.

About the Shoes

Designing Your Own Shoes

designing the shoes. The shoes have already been designed, and can be ordered as shown. But with so many customization options, the shoes you personalize can be nearly as unique as if you had designed them
lot of styles in each category. Each shoe has customization options next to it. Most of the styles will allow you to control many of the following
  • Size: Most styles are available in US women's sizes 4 - 10. But if you wear a larger size, don't despair. There is a large, special section that includes styles that can be made in sizes 11 - 14.
  • Width: Need a special width? Not to worry, every style I looked at had the option of being made in narrow, medium or wide.
  • Colors: Nearly every shoe I viewed had at least one color that could be changed - and the selection of colors is amazing - baby blue to lime green, and everything in between. Some styles also allowed you to select trim, lining and the colors of accents, like crystals or studs.
  • Materials: If the shoe features a leather upper, you can select from options like patent, genuine, metallic or suede. In some cases, other fabrics are available.
  • Heels: In certain instances, you can select the heel height, and in many cases you can choose the heel color, whether or not it has rhinestones, or other embellishments.
  • Insoles: Latex foam insoles are always included at no charge, but for $10 - $15 more, you can choose to add special poron soles for added comfort.
