I love looking at the customised vans and converse trainers in the shoe section of the forum! I had a go at doing some myself today, which im about to post so I'll pop the link up here when I do it!

Would anyone be interested swapping some of their fancy customised footwear??

I'd kill to be part of a swap like that! Currently, I'm painting a little monster on my converse. But alas, I haven't been a member of Crafster long enough to join.... Dammit.

Just a warning, I'd be really worried about flakers in a swap like this. Or maybe I'm just jaded, I was flaked on in a swap where we sent out underwear (new) for our partners to decorate and send back. Even if you didn't buy your own and send them to your partner to decorate, I'd still be worried. You know... "yay! free pair of shoes!"

I see your point, but I was thinking of converse/vans style shoes. We have a shop in England called Primark which sells similar styles for 3 which is about $5 I think! You can also buy them from Tescos. You probably have similar stores in America too.

I'd totally be up for this swap. I've been looking for a reason to remodel some shoes.
