Five tips when creating your shoes
Before you create your own shoes you need to know what type of shoes you like. Flip through some magazines or take a look at some online stores’ collections, even social media can provide you some form of inspiration for your shoes.
Another important thing to consider is what you have to wear with your new shoes. Put some outfits together and try to see if your shoes idea will match these outfits. This is a very good idea when you are looking at some animal print ideas or other alike patterns.
What are you going to use
What type of fabric do you want to use for your shoes? Are you thinking of something tick or something a bit thinner? Keep in mind the color that you want to use, as well as the texture you have in mind. Are these going to be summer shoes or more for winter? Don’t be afraid to mix textures or colors either, these are your shoes.
Toes and Heels
Always think about how long you are going to be wearing these shoes, are you going to be okay if you wear them the whole day? High heels are beautiful, but not always the most practical of footwear for the working environment. For the style of the shoes, think of some toe and back combination. Create your own style and set some trends.
The little things
Little bits of color, or a cute bow on the toes of your shoes will make the world of difference. This is where your personality come into the creating process. What do you like most, what is most eye catching to you? You can put your signature on every pair of shoes you have, and you should.
When you want a new pair of shoes, but are tired of the available store stock, then there are many places you can use to create unique and interesting styles for yourself. Others can also benefit from your creativity if you decide to become a designer, or if you gift them your creations. You do not even have to take out a lot of many to just renew you style a bit and upgrade your old shoes with some new ideas.
