i was looking at rosered's awesome tattoo shoes (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=4269.0) and thought i'd make my own. too bad im not that artistically talented with birds and shapes. anyway, what i did do on my white ked rip-off shoes (told you i was cheap, i cant even buy real keds) was kind of a retro saddle shoe. my digital camera's on the verge of revoulution, so the pics arent that great...sorry. well, here it is...i've only done one shoe so far. its mate is coming soon.

dunno if you can tell from the pics, but the inside sole is done too with the same checker pattern. On this shoe i used permanent markers and am contelpalting sprayed them with scotchguard to keep the water from bleeding the marker...i hope it works, because i havent tested it on anything else yet. i really hope these hold up, because they are my new favortie pair of shoes! (next to my worn in chuck taylors)

well, if any of you have idea/suggestions for future shoes, let me know

rock on

What kind of paint did you use? I tried painting shoes once and the paint cracked.

Yes, spray them, I did that on my shoes they are leather, and it smears all over the place.
