Inspired by these shoes from Alexander McQueen Spring 2010,


I decided to take my old French Connection laceups


And shower them with a storm of acrylic paint! As a personal touch, I decided to paint the heels white to provide a clean, crisp contrast to all the chaos going on up top. I was really pleased with the result. Photos:

^I love that! It doesn't look exactly like the shoes from AMcQ, but it's original all by itself!

izzydore - nice. So you didn't use a primer, or sand them in any way before beginning to paint?

This thread gave me the adrenaline to make some of the thing that are posted.
There's a blog I often go to, and it really has great ideas, the tshirt with the string sleeves is great. You guys should give it a look.

Hey cicciolina, my mom had this really old pair of square-toed boots she was getting rid of, so I just used them... The Ann D's are more roundish, but it worked out okay! Izzydore I love those shoes!! They're amazing!
