I think I've gone insane! Or at the very least, I'm beyond obsessed. I've made several pairs of high-top tennis booties, and I keep making them.. and I can't stop! I'm in love with the pattern and the booties are easy and quick to make.

So here's what I've done so far!

If you've made similar booties, I would love to see them! So link me up!

Thanks for viewing!

Edit: Also, if anyone wants the pattern, I used this one: http://crochet-mania.blogspot.com/2009/05/baby-high-top-booties.html with a few changes of my own. I attached the toe top part differently, making it more embedded and the shoe less round at the top (I attached it a bit below the stitches, not directly on top of them). I also made a backward single crochet stitch around the edges of the ankles. And instead of going through both loops on round/row 4 of the sole (where the ankle part connects to the sole), I only used the back loops in my single crochet stitches, so as to make a sharper edge around the sole. Hope that helps, if you want to try them out!

very cute!  you say they're easy to make, but anyone who looks at them and how perfect the detail is would thin they would take a lot of work!  what a great job, and so many color variations!

Thank you, all! Smiley

They are actually easy to make, once you get the hang of the pattern. The only issue I have with them is that there are too many yarn-endings to finish off. Cheesy

Hope you all try to make them as well. It's great fun!

I just made 2 pairs. I made one pair small enough for a newborn and then the others the way the pattern says to. I love them. They are so cute.
