Customising and personalising footwear can seem like an impossibility for most young footwear designers. Kids can harness their creative streaks by using the Converse website "Design Your Own" feature. You can design blank versions of selected styles with Converse colours and prints. Parents can help kids select the customisable sneaker type prior to activating the design feature, such as the All-Star Converse strap shoe. Always remember if you are designing Converse footwear for a specific date or occasion, customised sneakers have a three- to four-week delivery period.

Go to the Converse website and click on the "Create" tab across the top of the screen. A window opens with the "Design Your Own" option. Click to activate the feature. The website loads several footwear blanks with a banner indicating if the style is available for customisation.
Open the ribbon bar for the drop down menu and select the collection, gender and style. By selecting the kids button, the screen automatically redirects you to the styles available for customising.
Click on the desired style button, such as low-top or hi-top. This narrows the style selection by showing only the silhouettes within that particular range. The style also shows the kids size ranges.
Click on the blank strap shoe for girls or boys to redirect you to the design page. The page can take several minutes to upload, depending on your connection speed. An enlarged side view of the selected strap shoe appears on the web page with a completion ribbon bar at the top of the page. This tool is handy, alerting you of any missing design features prior to completing your order.
Hover the mouse over the blank strap shoe and click to activate. Separate windows open for each section of the all-star strap shoe. For example, choose a print for the outside body with a complementary colour for the stitch.
Continue to repeat Step 5 until the ribbon bar across the top of the page is complete. Boxes within the ribbon bar fill with colour or print as you complete each design feature for the strap shoe. You can also rotate the shoe to front, back and side views and see the customised design from different angles.
Click on the size button to open the drop-down menu located at the right side window. This area also displays the style and price. You can also save or share the design if you want to redesign the strap shoe prior to finalising the order.
