Sneaker companies let you get creative online. Design your own?
For my birthday over a year ago I requested a pair of pale pink skull & cross bone Vans, since then, I have been suprised that people haven't jumped on the artistic bandwagon.
I recommend slipping on a pair of custom designed Vans or sporting out in Nike's. Each site provides a color palette and patterns to choose from...My K-Swiss and Converse let you monogram your kicks too. Last but not least, if you're lacking your own ideas, Stubbs & Wooton has a line of unique shoes and slippers that go from beach to black tie.
It's also a great gift idea, think...bridal party gift, or cute baby sneaks.
Either way, you can RUN away with your own style!
