I love shoes. I have more shoes
than is really necessary for any one person to have, but since I am a woman, I have the ultimate need for shoes. I also can't throw any shoes away, so when I get bored with them, they sit in the back of my closet, lonely and neglected.
If you happen to be as bored as I am with shoes that are no longer in style, you can bring them back to life by giving them a coat of paint. Howard Rheingold is an exceptional artist who has mastered the art of painting shoes
. He has wonderful pictures of shoes that he has painted. He walks (pun intended) you through the steps of painting your shoes.
From sanding the shoes, to drawing the design, Howard gives you steps to ensure that you make the ultimate fashion statement with your new pair of shoes. If you need inspiration check out the gallery of painted shoes
. No one, including you, should be able to tell how old your shoes truly are, and at this point it doesn't matter anyway. Painted shoes won't go out of style, unless you have painted something really ugly on them, in which case, you just might want to hide them again in the back of your closet
