While we were still in South Carolina, I picked up a pair of Converse from Target for $8 on sale. I love my Converse. I have a few pairs, and my kids wear them now. Back in high school I used to draw all over them, and so when I picked up this basic pair, I thought it would be fun to do a little design on them.
And there you go! I thought about doing the toe-box of the shoe, but decided to keep it to the sides. The star strip on the sides and the backs of the shoes are suede, so I didn't really want to paint on that, either. I like the way they look like a cross between oxfords and old-school Converse now! I have a pair for Rowan I've been meaning to paint, and as soon as I figure out what design to use, I'll share those with you, too.
Toms to paint!
