Got questions about custom shoes? We've got you covered!
Production costs start from $12.42 if you’re Printify Premium subscriber (you save up to 20% off each item) or $16.42 for everyone else. One of our print provider partners for custom shoes is based in China, which offers an awesome perk: free shipping.
Yup! Custom-imaged footwear usually means you need to place large volume orders along with substantial investments. However, Printify is here to make your life so much easier – no matter if you wish to order a single pair for yourself or launch an online store, we’re open for business.
Yes! All our products can be ordered as a sample with your design. In fact, we encourage you to order a sample of your product before you start shipping it out to customers. As with any custom product, you should always check that your product matches or exceeds your expectations. Here is more info on ordering a sample. Besides, if you decide to subscribe to Printify Premium, we’ll add $29 to your Printify account, which you can then use to pay for product samples.
It depends on the print provider, but on average, it’s 3.5 days. However, you must keep in mind that shipping from China usually takes longer; and even though your custom order would be ready in 3 days, the whole process can take up to 30 days.
At Printify, we offer two techniques for shoe designs: direct-to-garment print and all-over print. With all-over-print (AOP), the fabric is first stenciled and then cut, creating a continuous design that goes into seams leaving no inch uncovered, which means uninterrupted designs from top to sole and no embarrassing, amateurish-looking white spots. To put it simply: first, there’s a large piece of white canvas on which the print provider transfers the desired design, and afterward, it gets cut and sewn together. The all-over pattern exceeds the outer edge of the garment, allowing enough ink coverage to decorate the shoe fully.
Direct-to-garment printing (DTG), a printer directly applies the ink to the shoe with inkjet technology. This concept is similar to printing on paper, except that in this case, it’s fabric or, in this case – a flip flop sandal. Your design is transferred directly onto the shoe, hence direct to garment, with a special printer using water-based inks, which are absorbed by the material of the shoe.
Most of our shoes are made out of durable canvas and nylon for the best possible print quality, but you have to keep in mind that due to the base material, our shoes are not suitable for fine prints – focus on.
Shoes speak louder than words
People talk about clothes but, more often than not, fail to mention the accessories that complete the look, the most important thing that can make or break an entire outfit – the shoes. The first thing people tend to notice on a person is their shoes, and they can tell you a lot about someone, so start designing shoes that tell stories. Start selling custom shoes that speak louder than words ever could. To start a footwear line, unload your creativity on the shoes that you can find in our catalog, put a price tag on and start selling.
Design ideas for custom shoes
Using the Printify online design tool is so easy! All you need to do is select the shoe you want to include in your wardrobe or online store, and the mockup generator will take you through step by step. And because all the shoes are custom print, you can be as daring as you like. The fun part about the Mockup Generator is that the more you use it, the more you will understand what you can do with your designs.
A custom shoe is the ultimate statement piece, there’s no doubt about it. It’s the first thing people notice. So the possibilities are endless – from 100% personalized sneakers for all the sneakerheads out there to corporate gifts with your company’s logo, to matching high heels for girls’ night out. You can also design a ‘His and Hers’ shoe line for all the lovebirds out there. Or add a touch of uniqueness with bold, one-of-a-kind prints for musicians or other artists. You can try our free designs or create your own – here’s a couple of design ideas you can implement in your eCommerce store.
Custom sneakers for couples and singles
Fashion has no limits! These extremely comfortable high-top canvas sneakers with a high-quality sublimation print are made to last (and to impress!) an original way to express the uniqueness of the personality and love to one another. Create matching pairs or designs that complement one another.
This edgy silhouette has been around for ages. Inspired by the punk culture, today, the 8-eye boots are worn all over the world and are a shoe for all occasions. The white cotton fabric is the perfect canvas to display unique wearable art to show off on the streets or music festivals. Add your favorite band logos, movie characters, graffiti or even celebrity faces!
Pop Art print heels
Known for its use of pop-culture imagery and bold color combinations, Pop Art began in the mid-1950s and gained prominence during the ’60s. The American movement’s effort to acknowledge consumer culture was spearheaded by artists like Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
Today, that aesthetic is trending and for sale, even to wear on your feet. The latest shoe trend would make Andy Warhol proud.
While designers like Dolce & Gabbana make use of rainbow palettes and mixed materials for their collections, the leading trend has been hijacked by the ladies. Pumps and platforms lead the way with a vintage poster-print high-top, reminiscent of the pop art culture such as Warhol’s Campbell’s soup cans.
Featuring messages of empowerment or simply to a gung-ho attitude, it’s safe to say the women have this handled. This pump is like, totally screaming for a pair of custom leggings!
Novelty flip flops
The novelty flip flop market is huge, especially for weddings and parties. Although they may only be used once or twice, they will be making someone’s day a bit more special.
One of the latest trends to emerge in the custom shoe field is cartoonified shoes where you can make your own shoes by drawing shadows and lines that create a cartoon effect. Some include additional details that play on existing elements of the shoe while others completely juxtapose on them to create a completely different feel.
Cartooning your own shoe may look easy but it takes a particularly creative mind, that unfortunately not all of us have, to get the look just right. That is why many customers go online to find their best bet. This is where a unique business opportunity presents itself for these gifted individuals. There are currently just about 50 stores on Etsy that offer these services and you can too.

How to sell custom shoes online?
Selling custom shoes is as easy as 1, 2, 3! Start a successful online business by selling custom shoes online with the help of Printify. We offer seamless integrations with the world’s leading eCommerce platforms – all you need to do is to create an online store, connect it with Printify, and add your products. And then it’s time for the fun part – marketing and expanding – while Printify takes care of all personalized flip flop orders.
The first step to sell your designs is to choose the most suitable eCommerce platform for you to sell your custom canvas prints. Many artists choose Etsy as it is the best-known online marketplace for custom-made goodies, and it’s relatively easy to gain quick exposure.
Shopify is a go-to platform for merchants who’d like to own their sites – owning your shop allows you to brand yourself a little bit more creatively. Shopify allows you to have your own domain name, which looks more professional, as well as access to advanced metrics and analysis. Plus, Shopify is the largest online eCommerce platform in the world.
Chose Wix, if you would like a custom-looking site (with a little help from celebrated designers.) It offers more than five hundred designer-made templates that give you a mixture of options when it comes to designing your eCommerce store. Use the site editor to customize your chosen template to make sure your site looks as uniquely yours as possible.
However, if you already own a website and don’t want to transition to Wix, Etsy, Shopify, or other platforms, you can sell your custom canvas prints on a WordPress site by using Woocommerce (it’s a free online shop plugin for WordPress.) If you are more tech-savvy and would prefer a different web host but still want to use Printify, then the Printify API is a great option.
Ready to start?
Now that you are full of design inspiration, you must be eager to get started. This is good news, but there’s more – your new designs are just a few clicks away! Our mockup generator is the perfect tool to help your designs see the daylight.
