I like making new things out of old things I don’t like.

This is a pair of green faux brogues sneakers that I made recently:

And this is their original grey form. They were nice but nothing special and I just don’t wear much grey.

So in walked a few permanent markers (Bic’s version of the Sharpie) and they got a bit creative.

The light green outlined everything to begin with.

The medium green filled in all of the other parts…

Some fancy edge work. Or as fancy as thick tips will allow.

And lastly the dark green added some spotty details and colour to the laces.

Easy!

Much more interesting than plain old grey sneakers!
