Chuck Taylor sneakers are classic and popular footwear, but the black Chuck Taylor can seem somewhat boring. Even though Chuck Taylor shoes come in a variety of colours and patterns other than the standard black style, Converse offers the opportunity to make your Chucks your very own by allowing you to customise the shoes yourself on their website.

  1. 1

    Navigate to the Converse website at>

  2. 2

    Hover over the Create button on the centre of the top bar of the page and choose "Chuck Taylor All Star" from the drop-down menu. This will bring up a page of shoes ready for customisation.

  3. 3

    Choose your shoe style---high-top, low-top, or any of the more modern styles. This will take you to that style's specific page, where you can choose different parts of the shoe to customise. You can customise the colours for the shoe's various parts, making each part a different colour if you wish. You also can add a personal id, a personalised message on your shoe.

  4. 4

    Choose the body of the shoe. You can do this either by choosing the "body" box on the top toolbar or by clicking on the body of the shoe itself. When you choose the body, a colour bar with different options will appear on the left side of the page. Choose your colour for each section of the shoe in the same way.

  5. 5

    Choose your personal id by clicking on the Tag IT tab or on the text on the shoe. Options on the placement of the personal id will come up on the left side. Choose either Low Rear or Heel Stripe for the text placement. Enter your ID and choose your ID's font and colour.

  6. 6

    Once you've finished your shoe, click on the Your Size button, which will ask you to fill out your gender, size and quantity. Hit the Done button on the Your Size tab.

  7. 7

    Press the Add To Cart button. This will prompt you to fill out information on any sections of the shoe that have been left blank. It will also ask you to confirm your design by pressing the Confirm Design button. You will need to complete this step before you can purchase your shoes.

  8. 8

    To buy your shoe, navigate to the Cart in the top right corner of the site. Review the product price and shipping to make sure it is accurate, and enter any promotional codes if applicable. Hit the Checkout key. This will take you to the Shipping and Billing portion of the site.

  9. 9

    Enter your shipping address and billing address in the Shipping and Billing fields. Press the Continue button when finished. You will be taken to the Delivery and Payment portion of the site.
