Not long ago, I got a promotional e-mail from Zazzle.com, which (like CafePress.com) allows one to create a variety of products customized with one's own graphic designs, art and photos. This particular mailing made me aware of a very cool new option offered by Zazzle.com. One can now create a variety of shoes decorated digitally with one's own custom designs!

I got to thinking that this could be a very cool way to share one's faith in Christ. I was reminded of a couple of scriptures which I thought were applicable:
And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things! ... Romans 10:15
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. ... Ephesians 6: 14-16
Since both of the aforementioned scriptures focus on the gospel of peace, one might choose to emphasize that aspect of the gospel when designing the shoes.
Too bad Zazzle only seems to offer such custom shoes for women and kids. Admittedly, some guys might think that such shoes were a little bit fruity. But I think it would be possible to design some bold, masculine shoes which even straight men such as myself would be proud to wear.
