If you've put in the time, energy and effort to design and create a one-of-a-kind pair of custom shoes, then you'll want to show them off to the world! But how can you do that in a way that will make your shoes shine on social media? In this blog post, we will share some tips for showcasing your custom shoes like a pro. By following these simple guidelines, you can create posts that will make your followers stop in their tracks and take notice!

 

Photos

There is so much competition on social media these days, so it is key to grab people's attention. First and foremost before posting it's important to have great photos of your custom shoes, this will give them a chance to shine on your social media.

Angles

Taking picture from a variety of angles is important for social media because it lets people see all the details. If you're using a phone or tablet to take photos, be sure to use portrait mode as this will help with lighting and angle issues.

If you're having trouble capturing photos of your shoes, try using a tripod and remote control shutter release (for example: the Apple Watch app). This will allow you to take pictures from different angles without moving around too much yourself.

Lighting

This is key when taking pics of any kind, but it's especially important when photographing shoes. Try to shoot in a place with lots of natural light, or use a good quality artificial light source.

Editing

Even the best photographers can benefit from a little bit of editing! If you're using a phone to take your photos, there are a number of apps that can help you make your shoes look their best.

Try using a photo editor like Snapseed, VSCO or Adobe Photoshop Express to adjust the brightness, contrast and saturation levels of your photos- Sometimes simple edits that you can do on instagram or snapchat, don't achieve the effect you want.

We know editing can get tedious, especially if you are constantly doing it for the majority of your posts. So to do as little as possible make sure the device that you are using is of good quality, ensuring high-resolution photos, no one likes to scroll through blurry pictures!

Background

When taking a snap of your custom shoes, pay attention to the background, therefore this can make or break an image - especially on social media! So it's important that you find a clean and simple backdrop that won't stop people from paying close attention to your custom shoes.

Having a lots of clutter in the background, will only take away from your shoes, so to avoid this make sure you find a space that is free of distractions and features a solid colour or simple pattern as this will make your shoes the star of the show!

If you're not able to use a solid colour backdrop, try finding an interesting location to shoot against, for example if your shoes are inspired by summer sit them in front of a flower bed in your garden.

This can help create a more visually appealing post.

Captions

When posting about your custom shoes on social media, don't forget to include a caption with each photo! They should be simple yet catchy, instantly appealing to the viewers eye.

or "My new favourite pair of shoes! I can't wait to wear them all summer long."

People love details and stories especially when it's about something they are interested in-So give them what they want!

Shoe Details

Tell people why you love the design, when posting about your custom sneakers, make sure to focus on the details! Share photos of the unique stitching, patterns and materials that you chose.

If you designed a pair custom shoes for a special event or occasion, be sure to post about that too! Let your followers know why you love your new shoes, and what makes them so special.

Always remember to mention the following:

  • The name and brand of the shoe designer
  • The company you used to design the shoes
  • The supplies/materials used
  • Any special features or design-This will help people learn more about your unique creation! Share some close-ups so that people can see the details up close. You can also add text overlay to your photos for extra flair.
