I draw the design and hand paint the shoes, then spray them with water resistant camping gear spray to seal the art so it doesn’t run or fade over the years. I still wear a pair i painted eight years ago. Every aspect of my work is done by hand, so each pair can take a good bit of time. I have processing time listed as 4-6 weeks. Please communicate with me if they are needed by a certain date as a gift and i will do my best to make it happen. Unlike in the example picture, i will be painting the white canvas rim around the top of the shoe on all future pairs i paint. I made this design before i realized how much better it looks painted. Please note all sizes listed are us. I personally have to size up half a size in vans.
