Comic Book Sneakers

Pow! Bam! Splat!

Everyone loves comic books, and here, vintage comics turn a pair of Converse All-Stars into the superhero of shoes. Their super power? Amazing creativity!

Step 1
Print public domain comic strips on sheets of Shoe Attitude, with the image in reverse, as the film will be flipped over ink side down onto the shoe. Depending on the size of your shoe, you will need two or three sheets of Shoe Attitude to cover a pair.
Step 2
Apply a glue stick all over the shoe surface you want to cover. Use your fingers to spread the glue evenly and get into the shoe crevices. Then peel the Shoe Attitude film from its protective backing and place it ink side down on the shoe. If you don’t get it exactly where you want, you can still move the film around.
Step 3
Once you’re happy with the placement, rub the film with your fingers or a craft stick to make sure it’s adhered to the shoe. Then trim the excess film with an X-acto knife. Apply a glue stick to the edges of the film so they don’t peel away.
