I don't have pics. But I had a pair of Nike high tops. And I didn't have $600 for a pair of metallic Lanvin high tops. So I found a bottle of silver spray paint at school and sprayed my shoes silver. I think i got a lot of compliments on them. And then after a while, I just put them away because I thought they were silly.

And that's because they were. And I most likely won't do it again.

i'd like to see pics


Have your AF1's airbrushed at a county fair. This has got to be a joke. What sort of decorative things would you pin on on them? I suggest Purple Hearts or Cub Scout badges...maybe a diploma if you've got one.

Right after my last pair of chucks died, I had painted all the black parts shiny gold and then tied the laces and threw them into their 20 feet high grave. I had to admit, it looked awesome seeing a pair of gold shoes hanging from a wire. But I don't think I would ever wear them haha.
