For many of us, sneakers are a form of self-expression. And what better way to take that a step further than to customize what we put on our feet? While there are sneaker customizers out there that can be commissioned to create almost anything you can dream up, there’s a much easier route. Many of the biggest sneaker companies offer their own customization programs, where you can give your own spin to some of their most popular models. We’ve ranked the current best of the bunch, based on the models and options available.
