The Vitsoe one is nice because the product and options are relatively simple, so that an illustration can be used instead of full-resolution graphics. That would seem to be a good strategy for making the options load faster.

Vans has one that works pretty well, in my opinion.

That vans one is one of the better ones I've seen for sure and exactly what I had in mind 3D-wise. Will play with it for a bit more.

Any others that present a different flow (showing pre-made options, filtering, etc.), I'm still on the lookout for.

Thanks,

Does anyone remember Customatix?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Customatix

I happened to move to Santa Cruz right after the company opened for business. They had a showroom that was more just a visitor's center, that showed how various options might look. I believe they had a few workstations available on site as well if you wanted to build a shoe there. I thought it was cool that they were right down the street so I actually designed and bought a couple pairs.

This was about the time that Nike ID was starting, and C-Max had more options at the time, and probably a better overall user experience. The company folded after a few years.
