Flash your own Converse Sneaker together

November 19th, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

Just found this yesterday via Adobe Consulting BlogConverse – Chuck Taylor, Jack Purcell, Basketball Shoes, Design Your Own Converse Shoes. Click on the first shoe under Collection. You can design your own sneaker with your own style of color combination and even add a personalized text at the side or back. I first thought its a nice gimmick for playing but in fact you can order your designed shoe in your preferred size! I’m a big fan of classic sneakers but I have rather large feet and finding large sneakers in Japan is more than just a challenge so I thought I’d make my own couple of neatly colored Cons and order them … until I saw the Shipping in U.S. only sign! Damn! Well at least I could print my design out. Here’s my low top suede model ‘Venice Nights’ :)

This shoe designer is a nice example that shows that Flash really needs to support 3D! Imagine you could freely rotate and texture the shoe model! Wouldn’t that be cool?!

    I think nikeid started this trend. Converse even copied some of the ping sounds: http://nikeid.nike.com/nikeid/index.jhtml

    I haven’t ordered from either one, but I like the converse. I worry the “yourid” is a peel off decal. it should be stitched, but doesn’t look that way in the pic.

    They also banned “momo” as an ID, but let me use momochan, pretty interesting.

    hahah – i just checked out nikeid again. its the exact same interface as converse. are they the same company??

    LOL you’re right! it IS exactly the same interface. Either a design rip-off or the same design company made it. The ID feature bans a lot of words. I tried several harmless words and many of them were not allowed. Kinda odd! I still prefer Cons/Vans to Nikes though :)
