Self-Publishing Authors Strut Their Stuff With Unique Custom Shoes Designed With Their Cover Art

“A pair of shoes can change your life.  Just ask Cinderella.”  So the saying goes.  So too with these full color art deco, book cover designed shoes that are sure to prompt questions and get authors talking about their latest publications.


March 9, 2010 – Denver, CO – Outskirts Press, the fastest growing self-publishing and book marketing company, announced today the perfect conversation starter for its growing family of published authors: unique, custom-designed shoes that feature designs from published book covers.  Individually designed to show off the cover art of each author’s  latest publication, these high-quality, commemorative shoes are now being offered exclusively by Outskirts Press.

Although particularly appropriate for children and children’s books with funky, full-color images, these artistic designs are show stoppers in any crowd. Each pair of shoes are original, high-quality white Champion KEDS sneakers.

“Authors can now strut their stuff as they don these commemorative custom shoes,” said Outskirts Press Director of Author Support Kelly Schuknecht.  “The shoes can also serve as companion pieces to the Custom T-shirt Option we already offer at Outskirts Press.”

The Custom Shoe Option is one more example of the continuing efforts of Outskirts Press to explore every possibility for an author to market his or her book, and this option now flanks the many other promotional tools offered through Outskirts Press, such as custom greeting cards and the Celebrity Endorsement option.
