How to design your own high top shoe

Gone are the days when you had to wear the same sneaker as everyone else. Popular shoe companies have taken their shoes to a new level by allowing you to design custom high-top shoes online. Create a shoe that has your favourite colours and caters to your personal style. Add a design or customise the colour of each part of the shoe. All you need is the Internet and a little creativity.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Log onto a website that allows you to design your own high-top shoe. There are a few types of these websites online, including and, to name just two. While will be used as an example here, the design-you- own applications on other sites function in basically the same way.

  2. 2

    Hover your mouse on the "Make" link at the top of the page. A drop-down menu will appear. Click on the "Start an Original" option. You will be taken to a page featuring all of the current shoe styles. Click on "Hi-Top" to sort out only the hi-top styles.

  3. 3

    Click on the type of shoes you want to customise. You will be redirected to a page featuring a large image of the shoe with a customisation menu on the right. Click on the first area of the shoe. A small menu will pop up asking if you want to add a colour or a pattern to that area.

  4. 4

    Scroll through the colour and pattern options and click on the design you like best. When you click on the pattern, your change will immediately be previewed on the shoe image. When you find the colour or pattern you like, click the "X" to close the menu. Then, click on the next area of the shoe in the customisation menu. Change the colours and patterns of every area of the shoe until you have designed your ideal look.

  5. 5

    Click on the "More Views" button beneath the shoe to see the shoes from a different angle. Click the arrows to rotate the shoes so you can see every side, and click the "+" or "-" sign to zoom in and out.

  6. 6

    Click on the "Size" button to select your size and then click "Add to Cart" to begin the checkout process. If you'd prefer to save the design, click the small disk icon next to the "Add to Cart" button, or click the print or e-mail link below to share your design with friends.

  7. 7

    Click on "Confirm Design" after you view both the inside and outside of the shoe. Complete the checkout process.
