I’m a big fan of simple canvas shoes. I like to be cute but casual; you won’t catch me walking around in high heeled shoes very often. I find that these type of shoes go with many outfits and can make a lot of them more everyday-ish. Whether it’s jeans, leggings, tennis skirt or a sun dress: canvas flats are the way to go for me. Recently, while browsing taobao, I’ve found a seller who specializes in hand painted shoes. I couldn’t let their Rilakkuma themed runners go. Who doesn’t love Rilakkuma? 🙂 I have pretty big feet and frequently Asian sellers either do not carry my size or the sizes are way smaller then European ones thus I try to buy shoes one size up. I was a little scared that these won’t fit me but after trying them on I can gladly say that they are perfect. If you are a European size 40+ (US 9+) you are out of luck here, but, I feel like one could easily paint a simple white canvas shoes in similar fashion. Just be a little crafty!
Lastly keep in mind that the shoes are indeed hand-painted thus they can have small imperfections but to me that just adds them more charm. The artist is very talented!
