To design your own shoes online, choose a website that offers this service, such as ShoesofPrey.com, Vans.com or ShoeDesignStudio.com and follow the directions on the site. The exact process depends upon the website and the kind of shoes you wish to create.
To design a pair of shoes on ShoesofPrey.com, begin by selecting the style of shoes you want. Some choices include high heels, gladiators, ballet flats and ankle boots. Then simply navigate through the design studio with each part of the shoe, choosing color, material and heel height. The site provides a picture of the shoe as you design, so you can see what your selections look like as you go. Once you are happy with your choices, save the design and add it to the cart to purchase it.
Vans also offers the ability to custom design shoes for men, women or children. Begin by choosing from one of the styles such as Slip-on, Authentic or Chukka. Next, scroll through the custom options and select the "Build Your Own" tab to begin designing your own Vans. Choose a pattern or color for each part of the shoe, then select the desired size and quantity. Vans also allows shoppers to share their designs or add them to wish lists.
