Hi all, this is my first time customising shoes... I bought these boring white plain trainer-type things (they had white laces too but I took them out):


And permanent-markered them with flowers and the like, and sewed beads on, and stuck some felt on the front which I added an applique to and I superglued the glitter on the bottom sides and covered them with some shiny stuff so it doesn't come off Smiley Oh, and I put ribbon in for the laces. (Please excuse the gorgeous white socks! Cool)




I'm not completely sure that I love the felt on the front, but I did superglue it on, so it won't come off Roll Eyes... Anyway, what do you think??

They are very bright and playful. It reminds me of when I was a kid, I'd draw on my shoes when I was bored, but it never looked that good. Yours are pretty cool though.
