Your own style is the new style

We think you will agree that just about all of us have found ourselves in a situation where
we really like a product and are on the verge of purchasing it, but the special something isn’t quite there. Maybe the problem is in the color, or the design is just a bit much. Maybe you found the handbag of your life, but the strap was just a bit too long, or that Egyptian cotton duvet came in tan, but not you needed sand to match your camel colored sheets. Why settle?

Personalizing your products has become quite trendy, and the list of things you
can design yourself is almost endless. You can design your own tote with Timbuk2,
create pharmaceutical drugs designed just for your genome, or even personalize
your own M&M’s! In recent years shoe manufacturers have jumped onto the customization bandwagon as well—us shoe lovers now have several options. Nike has unveiled
NikeID, where you can choose a shoe model and apply your favorite colors, name,
sports team and more.

Perhaps style is not the issue, but comfort is. Maybe you have an abnormal arch, or one foot is larger
than the other? Grisha’s Custom Shoes based out of Los Angeles will create a mold of your foot
first to ensure that it will fit like a glove. After the molds are created,
they use the finest leather to design whatever kind of shoe you desire. Maybe
you just aren’t the athletic type and you don’t really have a need for a custom
shoe measurement; there are always those special events in life where it
couldn’t hurt to have a fabulous shoe. Not surprisingly, there’s a place for that too! At
shoesUSA  you can incorporate your personality and spunk into your shoes and
design your own pair for any occasion. Especially if you are a blushing bride, having your own design while walking down the aisle will
only make you more confident.

So think about it … the next time you go to settle for
something that is less-than-fabulous, remember that you always have the option
to make it yourself.
