Custom trainers are a true fashion accessory - they are a piece of art! Personalising your own pair makes you stand out from the crowd and will definitely showcase your personality. Giving them the gift of custom shoes, personal to them, will surely be their favourite birthday present!

Design Ideas


Walking on air? Use cool hues of blue and grey to turn their trainers into the sky. Add in a few clouds, the sun and even a rainbow to the tick to make it shine! If they like planes, hot air balloons or kites, distribute them on the tip and foxing and use their favourite colours -  here is the RAF Sweetheart circling through the air! 🛫

As their ruling planet, Uranus provides visionary qualities to all those that are Aquarius-born. With beautiful blue hues, fill your design with shades of turquoise and dark blue. To capture the space theme, have your entire shoe foxing and tip filled with moons (and even an astronaut on the swoosh - if you fancy!) Add stars and the Uranus planet and turn your trainers into a galaxy! 🌌

Light Blue

With serenity, light blue is a gentle but bold statement to any shoe - the design can have a multitude of variations. To match the winter lustre and upcoming spring pastel colours with a subtle light blue tick that would go perfectly with jeans. Aligning with Uranus, combine stars and blue hues to create a space theme along the quarter and backtab. A fan of Disney? Ask to have the Genie, Sulley or Stitch painted on the quarter and tick, like this one below! Complement with delicate shades of orange for a contrasting look or speckles of dark blue to add texture.
