Designing shoes in the 3D designer can be a bit intimidating, especially if you’ve never used it before. That’s why I’ve decided to show you step-by-step how you can recreate the baby blue vintage flats from my summer wedding shoe styles post.
Step 1: Choosing the Correct Shoe Base
Starting off from the design my shoes page, pick the ballet pumps. This will be the basic shape of our shoe and is a simple and classic design.
Step 2: Getting the Right Toe Shape
Next, under the toe shape section of the Style tab (which will automatically be open), make sure that your ballet pumps have a pointy toe. This will help to give them that vintage aesthetic.
Step 3: Adding the Strap
Click on the Accessories & Trims tab, and under the Back Accessories & Trims, click on the T-Bar strap.
Step 4: Picking Where to add Colour
Now comes the fun part: adding colour! Under the Materials & Colours tab, click on the drop-down menu to select which part of the shoe you’d like to colour.
Step 5: Making it Baby Blue
Scroll through the selection of materials and colours until you find one you like. I personally use the baby blue colour at the bottom of the menu for these shoes, but you can choose whatever colour and material you’d like!
Your Finished Baby Blue Vintage Flats:
These baby blue vintage flats are a good shoe for anyone looking for a pair of shoes they can wear in the office then out to dinner with their friends. They pair perfectly with a variety of outfits, from skinny jeans to wedding dresses.
Other Colour Suggestions
The colour choices can be a bit overwhelming, so I’ve provided some other colour palette suggestions.
On all parts of the shoe: Baby Pink, under the colours section:
I also want to show examples of the strap and shoe being different colours. For this one, I used the red patent on the shoe and the yellow colour on the strap:
For my final variation, I used blue suede on the shoe and green colour on the strap:
