Custom Kicks From Converse - Get In Touch With Your Inner Shoe Designer

Have you ever had the urge to let your little one get in touch with their inner shoe designer? Or maybe you have unfilled fantasies of footwear creating. Or maybe you just like things ‘just so.’ Regardless of you motive, the Converse MAKE project is pretty irresistible. Here you can create your own pair of unique kicks. How does it work?

Well, you start with a basic shoe from a wide selection like their classic Chuck Taylor All Star model to One Star Classic to an All Star Double Tongue Hi-Top which comes in kids’, mens’ and womens’ styles. Then you get to pick your own color or pattern for each side, the tongue, the lining, the laces, the racing strip,  the sidewalls and even the stitching. You can customize them with prints from zebra, to skulls to the above cartoon bubbles or pick from a slew of hues. Plus you can put your own name/tag on them which can appear on the back stripe or on the side.

Below, check out a couple combos of the Chuck Taylor All Stars we came up with. And if you dare check out the last one the interesting mash-up my 4-year-old created online (a model that costs $45), which she is begging for me to have put in production and insists she’d “totally wear them.” You can see what your kid would create (or yourself for that matter) right here.
