Have you heard of Guppi Sh(you)s? They are an incredibly cool new shoe that can transform into 880,000 different pairs of shoes with just one set of soles!
How is this even possible…check out this quick video to see then read my full review of the Guppi Sh(you)s below!
As you saw in the quick video above, these shoes “zip” together! Making it easy to change your shoes to match any outfit you are wearing!
Let me take you step by step through the entire process!
To start you head to the Guppi website where they use a fun play on words to purchase your shoes. If you click on “FISH” you will their unique measuring tool to ensure that you will get the proper fitting shoes. Once you print it out, follow the directions and you are ready to start “catching” your style of Guppi’s!
Now this may be too much information about me, but my 2nd toe is longer than my big toe. This usually makes it hard for me to find good fitting shoes that don’t hurt my extra long toe. With the measuring chart printed out I was able to determine I needed a size 8.
Guppi’s have a neat tool called a “SHOE VIEWER”. You can choose side panels, heels, and tongues and then click to “view the shoe” to see if you like it! The first pair I designed was those adorable owl shoes. Using the shoe viewer was fun and my kids even wanted to get involved in it. After I placed my order my kid’s begged me to let them go back on there and “invent” new shoe designs! They “invented” new shoes everyday after school for an entire week!
Then I just had to sit back and wait for them to come. I was really impressed with the speedy shipping! I received 1 pair of soles, 3 side panels, 3 tongues, 3 heels, and 3 laces (pictured below).
So how do you put these awesome shoes together? It is really quite simple. There is a very helpful how-to video on the website or I have put together this step by step photo guide:
First you take the insole out of the soles. I did one at a time. Please note there are 2 zippers in each sole. You only need 1 zipper so they supplied you with 3 extra!
Each set comes clearly marked so you know which piece goes where.
There are two ends to the zipper. The front part of the zipper is curved. The back part of the zipper is square. You always need to put the back side on first or it won’t zip and you will be wondering why (go ahead…ask me how I know!) I decided I didn’t need a super helpful how to video…well I put my zipper on wrong and was making NO progress!
Then you tuck the heel piece inside the sole and remove the zipper head.
Next we add the side panels. Find the correct panel and attach the “guppi” shaped Velcro pieces to each other. Use your zipper and zip on the side.
Pull your zipper head off and put on the other side.
Could this be any cooler? You are making your own SHOE! Now it is really starting to look good and you are almost done!
Next we add the tongue. The easiest way to do this is insert the insole into the tongue and place it into the shoe. You also can put your zippers back into your shoe for storage. You can’t feel the zippers and the shoes are quite comfortable to wear!
The first time I put a shoe together it took me about 7 minutes. The 2nd shoe I put together took me 4 minutes. I took them apart to show my sister and put it back together in 3 minutes the 3rd time around. Again the video tutorial is really helpful!
I just love these shoes! They are fun to wear, fun to create and fun to match to any of my outfits! Guppi Inc offers a range of side panels to fit every personality….all the way from solid colored shoe panels for the more reserved person to bright/colorful patterns for the ones that aren’t afraid to express themselves!
