Margiela has also done some classic leather shoes that were totally painted in white, much like his painted jeans.

if i were to do it i'd probably go w/ a pointy shoe like the Cdg ones..and i'd even mix it w/ a little bit of sand to create texture and leave the loose hair of the paint brush (they would inevietably be mixed in) as far as painting shoes are are no longer worn..if the shoe was falling apart you could wrap those bits in duct tape and gesso over them..the rough edges of the tape would create the effect of what these shoes look like. you could also paint a bottom coat of a really bright color and then a top coat of white and let some of the bottom coat peek through. the top coat could be a really thick layer and you could sand paper the coat down so there would be various layers of paint/ shoe exposed. you could also have a very pure white (gesso) and then splatter it w/ off white paint for subtley. or..take steel wool and scrape it in various places.

oStelios- it is likely that others have done painted shoes before but I'm not familiar enough with either of those brands to say who actually did it first. It is a nice treatment to do to a pair of shoes and I really like the effect it produces especially when the paint starts to crack and the underlying surface is revealed. But I hope this doesn't become a trend and everyone starts wearing painted shoes.

I don't really like the scribbles on the shoe, it reminds me of the time when I was 12 and my schoolmates scribbled words and drawings onto their white school shoes (we wore uniforms in school). It also seems like an amatuerish attempt was made to customize the shoes. Correct me if I am wrong, is the base shoe a generic shoe type because i clearly remember seeing shoes with the same design (without the scribbbles) selling at gucci a few years ago?



softgrey - how are you going to produce the cracked effect? Please tell us about your project after you've done it.
