I love it when DIY bloggers do high fashion imitation projects. These Martin Margiela inspired painted shoes turned out pretty good, didn´t they? These were a project of Karl Leuterio, from the blog Inkarlcerating. He´s from the Philippines. Margiela just did a collaboration with Converse and those sneakers look rad. But this DIY is not as easy as it looks. I would test the painting first on an another shoe to find the right paint as there are so many different kinds. It needs to be thick and elastic. Victoria Villasana from Style Marmalade blog did her version of the sneaker using matte white acrylic primer paint (Liquitex Acrylic White Gesso). It is a primer for painter canvasses.
