I can’t say no to any potentially interesting and creative project and that’s what I saw when I came across Loafun. The website is the brainchild of a team of enterpreneurs from New Delhi who after seeing a friend decorate and wear his Converse shoes, realized this was an idea with great potential and started working on it a year and a half ago.
The website has grown from offering only a few set designs to allowing users to upload their own artwork and have them hand painted onto the shoes. It’s been on for 6 months and is now also getting active in the retail industry in New Delhi. Currently Loafun offers canvas shoes but will be expanding the collection to leather ballerinas and pumps. Exciting!
The website is extremely easy to use and straightforward. All you have to do is upload your design following the instructions on the page and wait for approval. Once it is approved, it will be hand painted onto the shoes and should reach you in a short period of time. I was surprised at how quickly my shoes were produced, I must say. Watch this fun video, as it does explain everything very clearly.
Loafun would like the world to know about his shoes and idea and that is why they are reaching out to bloggers such as myself, to show the potential of this fantastic idea. You, my dear friends and readers, will be the ones benefiting from this as I am giving away the Hello the Mushroom shoes to a lucky participant!

Gorgeous!!! So sweet and what a brilliant idea! 🙂
Thank you! I love the idea too- anything that’s customisable is inspiring 🙂
Brilliant idea! I would love a pair of personalized sneakers. xx
Thank you 🙂
Those are so cute!! Love this idea…good luck to all xx
That’s such a fantastic idea! And your Hello The Mushroom shoes are just adorable (unfortunately too small for me. And how did you think of your blog name?). This produce-on-demand idea seems to be catching on in so many ways. I saw a website that produces fabric in patterns that you upload – Spoonflower, I think. I love the idea of being able to get completely unique clothing.
Thank you!. I have thought about this, getting fabric printed with my own patterns but I believe it is quite expensive though 🙁
These trainees are super cute and adorable. That is a very smart idea. I would take care of them a lot and wear them with blue jeans and a cute simple tops so the shoes will do all the talking haha
I’m glad you won them 🙂
That sounds great, really fun and creative?
LOVE the concept! Your print is darling — you should post it on Society6. I’d buy a mug in it!
Converses are too uncomfortable for me to wear. Even my traditional Jack Purcells hurt my feet. WAH!
(I do have some extremely padded suede JPs that are like slippers though. I wish Converse would reissue those).
Thanks for the suggestion, I’ll definitely look into it!
Amazing!! I think that the art of customizing your own products is going to be huge this and the upcoming years. I love your cat design 😀
Thank you very much!
love them x
sooo cute! would give to my daughter for valentines
That is a great idea!
I would wear them with everything! but especially with cropped skinny jeans and a great Kelly Duffy red gingham top.
Good choice 🙂
