"Everyone likes to have a pair of shoes that are one of a kind. Customize a pair of shoes of your choosing. You can use photoshop or any website to edit shoes. To help me customize my Nike shoes I used but you can use any site you want. Make the two pictures into one you can do this with an app on the phone called Insta Picframes or any app you prefer. Then add the original shoes plus the "Before" text and add the new shoes plus the "After" text. I used Microsoft word to add the text with text boxes."
