Challenges of Shoe Designing(Culminating Part 4)

There are many challenges when it comes to being a shoe designer, one of them are how others judge you. When you are a shoe designer you are not the critic, everyone from the consumers to the boss will judge your work. You may think something is looks good, but once the shoe is released, no one likes it. The designing industry is very difficult because it is impossible to please everyone. Designers also have to meet the standard and keep the reputation of the company they are working for. I plan to surpass these hardships in many ways. To start off, I would have others look and edit my designs because I want feedback even if it isn't always positive. I would also learn from my mistakes, no one is perfect, but after making mistakes you have to try your best and not mess up the second time. To conclude, if I follow all of these steps and face the challenge head on, I can create unique shoes and prevent mistakes along the way.
Being a shoe designer is not just fun and games, there are many challenges along the way, one of them being the amount of competition in the field. When you are a shoe designer, you definitely aren't the only one. There isn't anyone who doesn't want to be the best at what they do, meaning there are over thousands of other people who are competing with you. If you release one bad design, it could quickly drop you to the bottom. With so many designers
