    Red face Customized shoe to celebrate

    Hey friends!
    i wanna post a new publication on my blog, can you help me?

    i wanna use this sentence:
    ••Customized shoe to celebrate the qualification of South Korea to the World Cup!

    it's correct? Can I start the sentence with "customized"? No problem?
    what about "shoe" it's correct or will I use "shoes" NB: I'm referring to an only pair! (Left & right) hahah!
    and "comma" punctuation is needed in this sentence?

    thank youuu! 😃😃

    What about "shoe"? it's Is it correct or will should I use "shoes"?
    NB: I'm referring to an only one pair (no full stop here) (left & right). hahah!
    and Is a comma (no quotation marks required) punctuation is needed in this sentence?

    Thank you! uu!
    First, please note my corrections and comments in red above. It's important to follow these rules of written English at all times:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with one punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
    Please don't use non-standard things like "wanna" or "gonna" on this forum.

    Yes, you can start with "Customised". I would use "shoes" or "pair of shoes". I would say "... South Korea's World Cup qualification". No comma is needed. What you have written is like a caption or a headline so it doesn't have to be a complete sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I would call it a "commemorative" shoe.

    Re: Customized shoe to celebrate

    A commemorative shoe is one that has been specially designed (i.e., "customized") to commemorate an event. Dave and I think commemorative​ is a better word to use here.
