If you are keen to wear custom sneakers but don’t want a generic design, then it’s time to read our handy guide to expressing originality with custom trainers.

We know that you want a design that is original and unique and so we’ve put together some top tips to help you get started – take a look now and get your design on the go!

Start with Colours

One of the most important decisions you will need to make when designing custom footwear is the colours that you want to use within the design.

Whether you want to go with the colours that are on trend or use your favourite shades, it’s important that you check each colour matches well with the others that you want to use.

You can use colour to create originality by picking options that would not be commonly used for the design you have, such as primary colours for faces or pastels for natural scenes. You could also choose contrasting colours that cause a strong aesthetic clash.


Think About Style

With your colours chosen, you should next think about what style you want to use for your design. If you are depicting your favourite band or celebrity, you may choose to use a cartoon style rather than a portrait style, or you could opt for a black and white design to create a level of sophistication.

If you are showing animals or nature, you could opt for a vivid or repetitive design that goes around the shoe or stick to one large focal point that highlights the most important aspect.


Keep it Simple

When designing custom trainers, you can fall into the trap of going overboard with your trainer design and losing the look you were trying to achieve.

The best way to avoid this is to keep things simple and zoom in on the pieces that really resonate with you, as the result will be something that is uniquely appropriate to your needs.

The other great thing about keeping things simple is that the design can then pay tribute to your chosen images, showing them off in the best possible way.


Remember Your Bespoke Trainers Are for You!

Finally, the best way to achieve originality from your hand-painted trainers is to design them with your needs in mind.

Many people create designs to impress others or while thinking about what other people may think, but this causes too much noise in the design process, removing you from the trainer design that you want to achieve.

To steer clear of this, you should just think about what it is that you want and focus on pleasing yourself; that way, you will get the custom sneakers that you’ve been dreaming of.
