Welcome to the shoemorf treasure page.
What can you do with a shoe?

|The back of the shoes were painted with dye, for more control. A nice diagonal stripe of white was left.
|Notice the tips of the shoe tongues were also painted with orange dye.

|The rubber band around the soles was also decorated with the fabric paint.
