Kick your creativity into shape!

Kick your creativity into gear by designing some new kicks!

Now that we’ve joined forces with Bucketfeet, Threadless has a whole new way for you to feature your art: SHOES! And to celebrate this sweet new canvas, we want you to design the first official pair of Threadless x Bucketfeet shoes! Think fun all-over patterns that’ll leave passersby in the dust of your rad style. Or turn each shoe into a little X-Ray machine by designing a drawn to scale skeletal foot that outlines your foot against a black background. Really put your heart and ‘sole’ into it!

We’re so excited about this new acquisition and even MORE excited to see what you come up with. Now go and design a sweet pair of shoe threads that’ll have Paolo Nutini singing notes. Hey, I put some new shoes on and suddenly everything’s right!notes stuck in everyone’s head!


Optimal files should be 25" wide by 20" tall, 300 dpi, raster or vector file
