when you can't afford fuel, or when there's a fire ban, you can just take off your shoes and swing 'em by the laces!

Posted:they do look good!

Acrylic paints would be good to use for that.. I did my self a couple of trainers a few years ago.. if you work the paint into the cloth it'll stay for ages.. use big gloopy dollops and it'll come off.. less is more.

Posted:oh, once i breakfasted in San Francisco with a journalist who was like a founding member of the WELL in San Francisco which was an ancestor of the web. . . Howard Rheingold, who wrote the book Virtual Reality. he was famous then for wearing hand-painted sneakers, including in cutting-edge techie labs & stuff when he visited Japan, they adored him on the commuter speed trains, and he was treated as a god there.

ya! you're gonna be famous, gurl. please keep some discounts for us, your early family, to buy your line as ya get totally rich and it comes out in Milan next year on da runwayz!

promise, Missie?
