Handmade Shoes from Recycled Sneakers

Craft & Design Home


From the CRAFT Flickr pool: user seschloss added a photo of her friend Josh’s shoes with custom made uppers (and recycled sneaker soles). He does a pretty thorough walkthrough of his process (ups and downs) on the Sewer Sewist blog, and even if the glue’s a bit funky around the edges, I still think these new creations are pretty fabulous.
