The only thing cooler than stepping out in a pair of Habbot shoes this spring would be stepping out in a pair that you designed yourself. It's not a pipe dream either, now that the Aussie-designed, Italian-made footwear company has relaunched #myhabbot – an online platform where customers can mix and match their favourite materials to customise a pair of the label's must-have shoes.

You might have heard about Habbot's "customise a classic" concept when they trialled it last October, with shoe-lovers jumping at the chance to play designer during a series of weekly events at Habbot's Strand Melbourne store.

This time around #myhabbot is here to stay, with a new online customisation platform allowing customers across Australia and the world to create footwear magic with just a few clicks of the mouse. Pick from one of four Habbot favourites – the classic derby, the point pump, the mid-heel sandal or a micro sole derby – and a whopping 24 different materials running from suedes and soft nappa leathers to party-ready glitters.

After you select your shoe lace colour and decide on the addition of brogueing (that hole-punch detailing), the design is sent off to Habbot's craftsmen in Italy. All in all, the final product should be on your feet within a month. There's also the option of heading into the store for a consultation, if you prefer a face-t0-face approach to your shoe design.

Jump over to Habbot's website to create your own one-off pair.
