Handmade in Italy.

If you're particular about shoes, perhaps it's time you thought about designing them yourself.

Habbot is making personalisation one step easier with #myhabbot, its fully customisable shoe service.

The brand first introduced the platform last year, with only one style of brogue available to customise. Now, #myhabbot is here to stay for good, with four styles to work with.

Customers can jump online and choose their style, before deciding how to cover each individual shoe panel. The platform offers you the choice of 24 Italian leathers, with textures like glitter, patent, suede and soft napa leather. You'll even pick what colour shoelaces you want.

If you're looking to delve into the process even further, you can request a design pack to be sent to you. The pack will include samples of all the leather, so you can envision exactly how your new shoes will turn out.

Best of all, each design is handmade in Italy, with a turnaround time of only one month.

It’s available in-store and online from today.
