My Customized Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star

My Customized Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star

Before I went to Florence I stopped by Converse Soho to customize a pair of Chuck Taylor All-Star, courtesy of Converse. When I first heard about the unique customization capabilities available in-store I was curious as of what options there were, if you felt the same here’s a look.

The process was quite easy and fairly quick, depending on how many orders they have you may be able to pick-up the same day. First you pick out the product you want to customize, I went with the white Chuck Taylor All-Star Hi sneakers. Then you choose your favorite art on the iPad station (unfortunately you can’t bring your own art or photo), you can pile them up if you want and write your own message as well. After you’ve chosen all the colors, fonts, arts, you work with a Converse specialist on placement. The specialist tapes up the insoles so ink doesn’t get on it, then the shoes gets hooked unlaced and hooked onto the machine ready to be printed! And the last part is choosing your favorite laces, after that your customized shoe is ready! If you want to create your own shoes with your personal touch, definitely stop by the store and check it out.

Let me know what you think of the shoes I customized, I kept it fairly clean. Check out the pics after the jump…
