Converse All-Stars are classic shoes that have been around for decades, but are still among the most trendy footwear for young people today. Converse puts out dozens of new styles each year, but even with that large variety there are people who are still unsatisfied with the selection and want something different. The Converse site for making your own custom shoes is the answer. There you can design your own Converse All-Stars from the ground up, with dozens of details to choose from.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Go to and go to the "Make" section of the site. Your first choice will be for the basic shoe style. You can make Chuck Taylors, Jack Purcells or the new Converse (Product) RED. Once you choose that, pick high-top or low top and men's, women's or kids. Scroll down, and you will be presented with the choice of shoe shapes that you can use.

  2. 2

    Pick a shoe shape to begin your design process. That will take you to the shoe design page. When you are on that page, click on the shoe to begin. This will cause a popup, allowing you to choose the outside body fabric of the shoe.

  3. 3

    Choose the colour or design for the outside body. This is the upper part of the shoe on the right hand side on the right foot and the left hand side on the left foot, the part that covers your outside ankle.

  4. 4

    Look to the right hand half of the screen and you will see a progress box. Click where it says "What's Left." A drop down box will appear, detailing everything else that you can choose to make your shoe.

  5. 5

    Choose the fabric for the inside body, tongue, lining, heel stripe, cover of the rubber sidewall and the racing stripe. Finally, choose the colour of the laces.

  6. 6

    Personalise your creation by adding a name or saying stitched either on the heel stripe or outside body of the shoe. When you are satisfied with your design, add it to the cart and take care of the payment details. Your classic customised Converse All-Stars will be at your home in about six weeks.
