Customize Your Shoes with Millions of Possible Color Combinations

Every year, our staff here at Softstar designs new "collection colors" for our various shoe styles. These are preset color combinations for our shoes that we will offer on our website for the next year. Though these color combinations are beautiful, sometimes our customers have a specific color combination in mind that is completely their own... and we can make it happen. The majority of our shoes for kids and adults are customizable, meaning we offer a wide variety of leather colors to choose from for various parts of the shoes. We love offering custom colors because it allows our customers to design their own dream shoes and express their unique personalities.

We created what we call "visualizers" for our customizable shoes. These are interactive tools on our website that allow customers to play around with different combinations of colors for our shoe styles and see how they will look before they are made. Examples of customizable options include the front and back of most shoes, Velcro strap colors for kids, trim and motifs, colored laces and more!

How to Customize a Shoe

  1. Click on the category of shoes you would like to customize by using the category menus our website. For example, this could be "Athletic" under the Adult Shoes tab, or "Child (ages 1-5)" under the Kids Shoes tab.
  2. If you see the RAINBOW SWIRL symbol in the top right hand corner of a product image then it means the shoe style is customizable and you can choose your own colors!
