Custom Vans Canvas Shoes


  • (1) set of white canvas slip-on shoes
  • Crayola fabric markers
  • Mod Podge (Matte finish)
  • Reference photo/inspiration
  • A hell of a lot of patience and guts

The biggest suggestion I can make regarding designing custom shoes (mine were a gift to someone I love dearly) is to consider not only what design might look great, but also what vibe they might be feeling. As you can see, I originally wanted to have designs in all panels, but upon finishing the toe panel, I realized it was too busy and so I blacked out the side panels.

Mod Podge serves as a great sealant and finisher, giving the product a blended, solid feel.
