Custom Made Shoes in Korea

Ok, so this is a bit random, but that’s what Open the Happy is for! Anyhow, I’m super excited about this because – finally – I CAN GET SHOES IN KOREA! HUZZAAAHHHH!!!

Basically, I went to the Adidas store in Times Square Mall in Seoul. You can’t find any big shoes there readily available, but there’s this funky looking barber shop chair with a touch screen that lets you create your own shoe design. SHAZAM! That’s what I said when I saw it. SHAZAAAAM!!! So I got that etched into my shoe. Ain’t that totally amazing? I picked the colors and patterns of the entire thing, sole to tongue to laces to even the inside material. BAM!

Now, it costs roughly 170,000 won, but – hell – I’m just happy that I don’t have to wait till I go back to Canada once a year in order to stock up on shoes. Now, if the fancy ever hits me, I can get some cool shoes made. Granted, it’s only Adidas, so if I’m feeling for a different style of shoes, something more subtle and less Shazaaaming, I won’t be able to find them. But at least I’m not totally out of shoes, right? So now you know where to get custom made clothes in Korea and custom made shoes, though, I don’t think you’d be wearing both at the same time. Might not match…

  1. Me not get why Simon doesn’t just order his shoes from Amazon or some other place and have them shipped to Korea.

  2. Is this a question for Simon and Martina? If so I can answer the question for you. Currently they live in Seoul and the studio is in the Hongdae are of Seoul. Previously ( at the time this video was made) they lived in Bucheon which is just outside of Seoul.

  3. if you wore both at the same time you would most definitely look like an awesome styling kpop idol. XP

  6. I’m so uptight.  The entire time that Simon was talking about the shoes while opening the box, all I could think about was that he was going to cut himself with the knife, and that opening an artery is the opposite of opening the happy.  
    Cool shoes though.

    • My customs were Nike and I ordered them from their website here if your interested 
      http://nikeid.nike.com/nikeid/index.jsp

      The colors matched my dress perfectly, also I added scrap booking rhinestones to them as well to add a bit of BLING! The only complaint I had was with shipping but if you are within their shipping range it’s really easy to get done!

  17. That’s price is actually pretty good! <3 
    Those are AMAZING. The idea that you can get things custom made for decent prices (obviously more than the store) is amazing. 

    Also, make Simon learn to sew so that he can learn to make his own clothes!
