Wow is all this really possible? I had no idea. I'm not in the least conscious about what I wear so this is a real eye opener for me in term of customization.

Do you happen to know what company offered this Design Your Own service first?

I am interested to know the order of companies joining in on this and the years they started. I also noticed that Keds have partnered with Zazzle which allows users to design their own shoe and sell it. Do you know of any other companies doing a similar thing?

I am writing a design essay on this new trend :)
