OMG, if I could give these shoes 6 stars, I would! Got my package in the mail today and I can't wait to sport them at my daughter's next game. All the Mom's will be so jealous=) I'll send them your way and I know I'll be a return customer!
How the painting began
I had the wonderful opportunity to study abroad in Florence, Italy. I studied fashion design and lived with three other wonderful girls who were also art students (well one was an english major, but also a student of art history!). One of these girls had already taken to painting shoes, turning them in to these amazing masterpieces. I was inspired to do the same to a couple pairs of my own shoes. The first, was a pair depicting scenery of the beautiful city of Florence I had just left, and longed for….an undying obsession even now at seven years later. Other friends and people started to ask about my shoes and requested pairs of their own. one pair after the other and that is how Painted Shoe Love came to be! I love painting. Painting shoes is especially fun because it's art that gets to be used and worn; and it's fun having shoes that look like no one else's!
I like to consider myself a true California girl; not the blonde, beach-bod movie kind, but a girl who grew up in a small town in the heart of California, went to school in Southern California, and now lives in the wonderful city of San Francisco!
