Did you dream of being a fashion designer when you were younger? Spend time sketching the dresses and shoes you'd one day create in custom colours and styles?
My 11 year old son can wile away hours online custom designing all sorts of things online. He's created the perfect goalie pads, baseball glove and last year for Christmas we gave him a gift card so that he could design his very own flat brim hat. Pretty sweet, no?
This year it was my turn. I was invited by Reebok to design my very own Reebok shoes through the new Canadian platform YourReebok.
First I chose the Reebok style I wanted; there are a number of Reebok's bestsellers available, and I went for the new ZigLite. They're the exact same shoes as you'd buy in the stores, but the creative possibilities are almost endless. There are up to 23 areas of the shoe that the designer (moi!) can customize with a choice of 19 colours, four materials and the option to add text.
Shoe prices range from $99.99 to $189.99, depending on the style, materials and optional extras chosen. Shipping is only $10 within Canada.
I love my one of a kind customized shoe, and I'm now joining my son online wiling away our time becoming fashion designers!
