I needed a plain pair of white tennis shoes one day so I bought these cheapos at walmart or kmart or somewhere and never wear them, so I dediced to dress them up a little.

The laces are not in yet, (crochet chain) because they are still tacky from the overcoat.

Used permanent sharpies, highlighters, colored pencils and whatever I could find.

oh goodness!  Those turned out quite nice!  I like how you did a little of everything--like doodles on your shoes!

They will look even cuter with the crochet laces!!

Crochet laces?  Seriously?  So SMART!!!

These are adorable!  Great job!  And they should match just about everything you'd ever wear, since they have so many colors in them.   Grin
