Your shoes will be original and one-of-a-kind. They are painted by hand– not sprayed or stenciled– using acrylic paints and a great deal of care.
These shoes are delicate objects of art, but I have personally worn my own pair in the rain for over a year and very little of the design has faded due to the acrylic medium and fixative I use. Each pair will be sprayed with water-resistant fixative prior to shipping.
I can paint any variety of existing astronomical objects; if you have a specific nebula, constellation or galaxy you would like on your shoes, please mention it (with a photo link if possible) in the “notes to seller” section.
If you have a custom design you would prefer, let me know! I can create anything you would like.
When ordering, please state your shoe size (mens or womens) and style and colour of shoe you would prefer. Space scenes work best with black canvas shoes. I can paint any kind of canvas shoe you would like, if you don’t want TOMS; please specify brand when ordering if this is the case.
Shoes must first be individually purchased and painted by me after your individual order is placed; please allow up to 4 weeks for delivery.
Celestial space prints are very popular right now, and I’m obsessed! I recently painted a pair of my Toms shoes with nebulas and stars.
It was so much fun! I used acrylic paints. First I painted the nebulas (using quite a lot of paint- I’ve been wearing them for several months, even in the rain, and they have held up quite well) and then I used a toothpick to paint the stars. I used metallic paint on the nebulas, so I loosely based the shoes on the Carina Nebula; next time, I’m going to choose a more famous nebula section for the design.
