Painting Canvas Shoes

There are so many examples of awesome, nerdy painted canvas shoes on the web. You can do something as simple as painting a small portion (as seen in the Pokemon video below), add something to the shoe utilizing its existing color (as seen in the bottom picture) or even paint the WHOLE shoe with your design. The options are pretty much endless!
