Transforming White Sneakers

I have been on the lookout for new shoes and sneakers recently since many of my pairs are wearing thin. A couple weeks ago I spotted plain white tennis shoes in Target for less than $4, and decided that was a good enough deal. I planned on transforming them with fabric markers, and this weekend I was able to go through with my project.

My design is based upon an image that I saw online to make the sneakers look like oxford shoes. Really, you could do any design you wanted. I used a gray fabric marker from Michaels for coloring, although it turned out quite blue. Before coloring with the fabric marker, I traced the pattern on each shoe with a marking pencil. Then I just went to town filling in the pattern.

I’m not sure these will become a new weekly staple, but they’re certainly going to be a welcome addition to my shoe rotation, especially in the summer.
