I Paint on Shoes…

Sole Addiction Custom Canvas Kicks

I put the pictures on top for those who don’t wanna read. Lol. These are some shoes I’ve been working on for a few days now. Over the past 2 years I have had issues with the quality of shoes in Nairobi (Kenya.) 99% of the sneakers are fake, and the genuine ones are usually second hand, and I don’t like doing work on 2nd hand shoes, so I decided to find a cheaper alternative that I can work on, on a consistent basis, and put out as consistently, and voila. I am VERY PROUD of these and I will be putting out many more as the year progresses. I appreciate everyone who checks out my blog, even when I would neglect it for months. Not anymore. Thanx again everyone.

    • Thanx so much for reading and commenting, much appreciated! As fas as that is concerned, I can’t do much about the fake sneakers. I have had to change my biz model over the years to fit this market. Kids these days r looking for something that’s affordable but still looks really good, which is the agenda I am now pushing. I love sneakers but they are not gonna be my focus for a long time. If you have sneakers you want to pimp and if they are not genuine, then I would have to do a very limited design so that they dont crack/peel on you. For now, canvas is the way to go. The only leather shoe product I will be pimping are heels. The paints I use work very well with heels 🙂
