Custom trainers are in high demand this season - they're a true fashion accessory! 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


Belonging to the element of Earth, incorporate the colours of the world in your design. Use warm hues of brown and beige to complement their winter wardrobe and solace their January blues. With a subtle colour palette, the design can have a multitude of variations - from whole shoe colour blocking to a simple patterned tick. Reflecting the serenity of the Earth, base your design around ombré, paisley and knitted stripe patterns - or even a cracked desert ground. Alternatively, sticking to greens and blues, focus on the meandering shapes of riversvine leaves and trees - like this this beautiful blossom pair!

As their ruling planet, Saturn represents restrictions to all those that are Capricorn-born. With swirling storms of orange and white, direct your design to mirror its voluminous nature. Encircled by 82 moons, fill the entire shoe foxing and tip with moons (and even an astronaut on the swoosh - if you fancy!) Add stars and the Saturn rings and turn your trainers into a galaxy! 🌌

Symbolising strength and safety, this gemstone is the birthstone of January. Holding power, opt for red designs that go with its vitreous lustre. Ask to have the swoosh painted with a gem-like crystal red and black drip like this one or simply colour block the backtab and vamp in dark hues of red. Prefer something floral? Put a rose on the vamp and add touches of red to the quarter and backtab!
