As part of my ongoing relationship with Reebok, I had the opportunity last month to try out the company’s YourReebok website to design a custom pair of shoes. I had a blast playing around and definitely spent way too much time designing shoes! Hey, once you start, it’s tough to stop!
Here’s how the YourReebok tool works””it’s easy and a lot of fun!
Once you select the shoe that you want to design (there are tons of options), you start with a blank canvas and work from scratch.
The first step is selecting your shoe size and then the fun really starts with selecting the base color or pattern of the shoe. (How cool is the pattern option!?)
Then, you move onto coloring various parts of the shoe””toe, side logo, heel, overlay, etc. There are 16 different colors to choose from, so you can get really creative with the various combinations.
You even have the choice of all 16 colors for the sole of the shoe, which I thought was especially neat. No boring, single-color soles here! (Ok, maybe people aren’t looking at the bottom of your shoes, but I thought this was a cool option.)
And, finally, you the select colors for the top of the shoe, including the lining and laces.
After a lot of playing around on the YourReebok site, I ended up with the shoes below!
And today they arrived in the mail! Woohoo!
Bright, colorful, and fun! I can’t wait to test them out at CrossFit later tonight!
Ok, giveaway time! One lucky CNC reader will win a gift card to customize the Reebok shoes of their choice!
