To join AliveShoes, start by submitting your application. Once you are accepted, you can design and sell your own custom shoes. Use our online tools to design and customize your own amazing custom shoes down to the final, intricate details. Choose from more than 130 bases, including fashion sneakers, sport & activewear, street fashion, fashion sandals, women’s designs, men’s classic, and kids designs. Work with different material types and select from a palette of more than 100 colors and materials. Add your own logos and customize your product packaging to match your brand.
Once you have your customized shoes, launch your campaign to reach your first 7 pre-orders sales. Completion of this goal launches production of your custom shoes and allows you to continue selling through your custom e-shop. Your shoes are manufactured and shipped directly to your customers in 15 to 20 business days. You never have to think about production, shipping or customer service; AliveShoes has got you, your shoes, and your shoppers covered. For each pair of custom shoes sold, you earn $30 profit, which can be easily transferred to your PayPal account.
Following your first 7 pre-order sales, you’ll be awarded your AliveShoes Official Designer Certificate to use as a valuable distinction on your CV or résumé.
Also, at the 7 sales mark, you’ll be able to access our new fashion collective called The Shoe Circle and showcase your design to a worldwide audience and get direct introduction in the world of fashion.
When you've reached 7 sales on one of your shoe designs, you’re granted access to AliveShoes Kids and AliveShoes Fashion Accessories sections.
