I wish I had a before picture to enter in this month's craft challenge!
these used to be some very ugly, uncomfortable denim platforms that pinched my toes, but I love how tall they were so I kept them.
Finally one day I decided to spruce them up & here's the result, et voila!


I cut the straps to give my toes a little more room & re-sewed them with some tough thread, the lettering is Latin for "She Flies On Her Own Wings"
Enjoy!

those look fantastic! Did you paint the tattoos by hand? or are they some kind of template thing?

Wow these remind me of the shoes I saw on this guy's Web site (http://www.myspace.com/ndeurr) except I bet what it cost for you to make them is worlds less than what he charges. Such a great idea!

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

Wow, I need a pair of those.  The artwork goes so well with the style of shoes.  What kind of paint did you use and did you seal them?  Where did you get you inspiration?  Do you have any action shots?
