How to Create Your Own Soccer Shoes
Customising soccer shoes is a relatively simple process. (soccer ball image by Rich Johnson from

Soccer is fast becoming one of America's most popular sports, played by athletes of all ages and levels of ability. But in order to play the game you need the proper equipment. This includes a good pair of soccer shoes. Most shoe companies offer the opportunity for soccer players to customise their shoes. To design your own soccer shoes all you need is an Internet connection and an idea of how you would like your shoes to look.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Choose a brand. The best way to choose a brand is to perform a broad Internet comparison, visiting multiple websites to compare pricing, as well as to see to what extent each brand lets you customise your soccer shoes. Most companies that sell soccer shoes offer a wide variety of options when it comes to designs, sizes and colours. Two such brands that are trusted by many soccer players are Nike and adidas.

  2. 2

    Measure your feet. When buying shoes, it's always important to knowing the size of your feet first. The best way to accomplish that is to have a professional salesperson measure your feet, especially while you wear your favourite brand, whether it be Nike, adidas or another. Along with the length of your foot, you should have the width measured as well--many shoe companies allow you to adjust width as well as length when designing your soccer shoes.

  3. 3

    Start building your shoe. Let's assume, for the sake of an example, that you've chosen to go with Nike or adidas. Both brands allow you to colour the base of the shoe that covers the toes, as well as the sides of the shoes, the tongue and the laces. Each part of the shoe can be a different colour, and both companies offer a wide range of colour choices. If you play for a team, you may want to coordinate the colours on your soccer shoe to those on your uniform.

  4. 4

    Pick a size. After deciding on the brand and choosing colours for your soccer shoes, brands like Nike and adidas will send you to a page that allows you to pick the size and width of the shoe. During this step, they even allow you to personalise the shoe further, by adding your name or team number--or both.

  5. 5

    Check out and pay. Now that your soccer shoe has been customised, you will need to follow a link that reads "Add to Cart." Once you view your shopping trolley, you will be prompted to give the number of pairs you would like to purchase. Be sure not to rush through this step, or you may find yourself backtracking after ordering the incorrect number! Finally, after picking the quantity, you will need to enter your credit card information and address. Then sit back and wait for you new customised soccer shoes to be delivered.
