A Portrait of Shoes

My Mizunos

Shoes have so much life in them after we've worn them around for a while, don't they?  These are my old Mizuno running shoes.  They are old but not worn out, and very bored from lack of use lately.  I needed to do some trials and work on style anyway, so I made this shoe portrait in hopes that I might get inspired to lace them up and get out of my house!

I used ink and watercolor on Strathmore 400 series watercolor paper.


  1. Old sneakers have never looked so good! Great study!!

  2. Well...I'M inspired! Wonderful portrait! :)

  3. Great style! I loved my Mizunos too, now I got weird looking flat 'barefoot' running shoes. I think they deserve a portrait too, as I use them a lot!

  4. Wow, fantastic shoes! I wonder if you made it out of the house with them. ;D
