These are so awesome!  Shocked It's the projects like these that make me want to learn embroidery (even though yours are machine done) so I can have awesome things like this! Don't know if I ever will, not sure I have the patience (says the knitter)  Tongue


Great job! Fantastic!

I have wanted some of those since I first saw them a bit after converses became popular again. I love how tall they are.
Your embellishment is perfect and really awesome! Great job!

AAAHHHHHHHHh thank you thank you, i just found my wedding shoes.  with different embroidery, though! 
questions:  did you find it difficult to embroider the part by hand that you ripped out?  what a wonderful idea!
also, i have to ask, how do they look on?  will they make my calves look big(ger)?  please an action shot!!!
(and also, in my mid-thirties... )
you did a wonderful job.

Haha ... my husbands says they are *schweet* .... and we are in  our mid/late 30's with 2 kids! I asked if I could get a pair and he says "After the other house sells.!  Yay ... I might just get a pair and have my mom machine embroider them for me. 

Oh and I CAN wear them when I am with him .... but ummmm ... we are home bodies and never go anywhere.  hehe

 Shocked I am so wisting these.....they are fabulous! BTW - my hubby tried to burn my black Chuck hi-tops when we were dating, he hated them that much. So I totally understand Wink I now have just a regular pair (but now that I've seen these - I will be buying them!!) and I'm sure he will give the same restrictions as your dh (we are the same age btw Kiss). LOVE LOVE LOVE these!
