Artist Jeff Meadows did a great custom paint job on his shoes! From an interview with him on Illustration Mundo.
Very nice! But those lacing absolutely drives me up the wall :)
Looks like a variation of this style of lacing, which is what I use on most of my shoes and which I really like. Looks cool and works better than any other method I’ve tried. Looks like he gave up after the bottom section, though.
Anyway – I’m not sure these shoes work with those pants (which should be hemmed or cuffed – way too long) but I do like the idea of artists painting shoes, which I’ve seen before. Typically isn’t very successful if one tries it on their own (unless you’re an artist), though :)
If I had to guess, I’d imagine @boingboing-0ded76f9366ef64f8de40cf5d687751e:disqus was referring not to the pattern of lacing, but rather to the fact that the initial section of each lace is all twisty.
It would be even funnier if the artist himself isn’t a white guy.
very cool. he needs less “break” in his pants.
