Design Your Own Shoes !

Have you checked out the amazing John Fluevog shoe store on Haight Street? Really creative, well made shoes & boots with comfort and style. Even the heels are comfortable. Really.
And wait, there’s more……. you can design your own shoes.

From the Fluevog site:
“IS YOUR IMAGINATION ahead of the whole shoe industry and you’re sick of waiting for them to catch up? Here’s your chance to go over their heads and deal with someone who actually cares what you want. All that you need is that brilliant idea. Even just for part of a shoe – scribble it down and send it to us. We don’t care if it’s on a bar napkin, as long as we can make it out. So, fax it, mail it, email it, bring it in, just get it to us!

Will I Be Rich? Are you insane? Nobody gets paid for Open Source Footwear designs because nobody owns them. That’s right: once you send us your design, it becomes public domain, freely available to all. We might use the whole thing, base a design of our own on it or just part of it. And your idea might only be for part of a shoe anyway. This keeps everything fair. Having said that, if you’re chosen, we’ll send you a free pair!

Will I be Famous? Even better. You’ll be Fluevog Design Alumni. We’ll name the shoe after you. Give us a second choice, though, just in case your name happens to be “I. M. Satan”, or something. We’ll also put you on our website, so get into that photo booth and smile, Bucko!

Will I Be Pretty? Ask your Mother.”
