Vans has given customers the option of customising their shoes with images, fonts and colourful motifs. 

The Canadian shoe giant shared a video on Instagram, featuring artist Melodie Perrault who showed her creative process for her custom design in a sped up time-lapse video.

With this much potential for creative expression, you’d think people would reach for the stars, but many have opted for inspiration closer to home. 

A considerable number of Vans customers are choosing to have their pet dogs represented on their new kicks.

One ex-dog owner used it as an opportunity to give a sweet tribute to her deceased pet. 

She captioned her post: “Toby shoes because now our walks together never have to end hehe 🐶💘 #RIPToby 
#VansCustoms 🏁 .”

Another pair of dog-themed Vans were shared on a dog’s account (a miniature poodle, in case you were wondering), with the caption:

“Think me mam is losing it, she went and got pictures of me on some custom-made vans #vanscustoms.”

Take a look at all the dog-loving Vans circulating on the internet.
