I found an image on line that I liked and used it as a reference to paint these images.

I used fabric paint which is fine in the was, but no, I haven't sealed them. I want to hand wash them, touch up the paint then seal them.

Those are really cool!  I especially like how you chose profiles instead of the more common front shot.  Did you have to pre-treat the shoes?

I coated them with gesso first.
