Inspiration Board : Design Your Own Converse - Yes, Please

Posted by


For my niece's 8th birthday we decided to customize a pair of Converse sneakers for her. Converse has a great website that allows you to choose almost every detail of the shoes, right down to the color of the stitching and embroidering your name. For Molly, it was all about neon and as much color variety as she could get. Designing them was really fun—the options you choose are reflected in the shoe image on screen. It is even more fun when they arrive in the mail a few weeks later. I think the end result was quite cute.
