Design your own Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers

Converse doubts my supremacy

Converse doesn't think I'm god and I'll tell you more about it on this entry. I think I'm the last person in the planet to know this but who knew you can actually customize design your own Converse sneakers? I know you can get things made by the big bespoke guns like Goyard, Vuitton and Hermès but Converse? Good ol' cheap and chic ass Converse? Shit, before bling bling became popular, I used to cover my converse sneakers in SILVER and GOLD glitter glue!

I'm not really a sneakers/trainers/rubber shoe/nasty hipster person so my knowledge is soo limited when it comes to these things. Best to leave those BAPE whatever to the darker demographic while I get myself a pair of classic Chuck Taylors.

Click click click!

There first step is to pick your own canvas. They have all sorts of shoes from hi-top, low-top, slip and x-hi canvas. I personally prefer the Chuck Taylor All-star Hi-Top because IMO, it's a classic.

From there, you may choose the size you want and start with the design. You get to customize things like the outside AND inside body of the shoe...

followed by the heel stripe which is this vertical strip of whatever on the back of the shoe.

You also get to pick the tongue colour. I chose yellow because I don't have a pair of yellow shoes... and it doesn't help that the only thing I have in my mind right now is New York City... and their famous yellow cabs.

The next step is to customize other parts of the sneaker like the rubber sidewall color, racing stripe and stitching.

Jesus mother of god this bitch has more anatomical parts than I do!

I don't like white shoelaces so I chose black...

Here comes the fun part. You can personalize your sneaker by adding a little sumthin' sumthin' -- you can do it on the heel stripe...

Here's my final shoe...

Nice eh? I know it's simple but hey, I like it.

Unfortunately it takes about 3-4 weeks for shipping and they can only send to the USA. This is where an American friend, family member or an illegal immigrant comes handy. I think every third world citizen has a family member in the USA, no? Hello California!

You can do all sorts of things like play with colours... a different shade for each shoe part. I chose 3 shades of blue because I like blue. Blue makes me feel good.

Yep, I'm the queen!

I was just reading an old copy of Vogue and I saw some dress with graduating colours so why not do something similar...

Here's the thing that I don't like.

Are you ready?


I swear, that was the first thing I had in mind!!!!

I mean hello, it's understandable for them to ban words like fuck, slut, etc.

But the phrase "I AM GOD?"

How dare they question my authority and supremacy?

I totally lost the plot when I got that error message.

I have 3 customized sneakers on my shopping cart and you won't allow me to put 'I AM GOD' on my fourth pair of sneakers?


And there you have it. You've seen the reason why I'm never gonna be one of them dirty hipsters. HAHAHAHA ;)
