How to design your own shoes

Shoes! Glorious shoes! Footwear is a vital part of any one's wardrobe regardless of what your personal style is. From trainers to dress shoes, there are several websites which allow you to create your own shoes online. On top of that, they offer very reasonable delivery times.

The casual

So where do you start when you want a customised pair of shoes? If it is casual trainers that you are looking for, there are several websites which you can use. Try logging onto Converse.co.uk which will allow you to design your own Jack Purcell, All Star and Chuck Taylor shoes. This site allows you to customise every element of your shoe, from the toe bumper to the colour, stitching, laces and lace eyelets. You can also design your own logo or shoe ID. This site is very user friendly and allows you to work with a photographic model of the shoe and not a computer generated version. What you see on the screen looks like what your final product will be.
Store.nike.com Other online sites which allow you to customise sports shoes include Store.nike.com. This sight allows you to custom design your own Nike running shoes or casual sneakers. The cost of a pair of customised kicks should cost you about £55 to £120. Once you have designed and ordered your shoes, they should be delivered to you in between three to seven weeks.

The dressy

If you need a special pair of shoes for a smart occasion, then look no further than sites like Upperstreet.com and Shoesofprey.com. These sites allow you to customise most types of shoes from ballet flats to wedges and pumps. You can choose the heel type to suit your needs, be it a flat, a sky high stiletto or a comfy wedge. You can even specify the height. The colour and type of fabric which will be used on the upper can also be chosen and include options such as leather, suede and sequins. You can add straps, and embellishments to your hearts content. These customised shoes cost upward of £130, and once you have designed and ordered your shoes, they should be delivered within six weeks.

Human eyes and facial expressions, including all the wrinkles, fleshy folds and shadows, personify the human spirit, so artists strive to learn how to draw people's faces.
