Pride Sheffield 2017 – Custom Pride Trainers Not Converse

My sister told me about some Pride Converse she wanted to buy. They looked pretty good but there is no way I can afford to spend £60+ on a pair of trainers right now.

So me, being the creative type thought I could make some myself. Decided to create a few sketched first of what I wanted before starting to draw on the shoes. I didn’t really want to free style 100% because I was using permanent markers so I couldn’t go back!

I bought myself some cheapish canvas trainers from eBay, around £11. The markers were from Hobbycraft, £5. Plus I had a few bits and bobs knocking around from my craft stores. To finish the design I bought some rainbow coloured laces, also eBay. Spent less than £20 altogether.

Also bought some cheap plain white t-shirts off eBay to make Pride t-shirts for me and my husband.

To say these were cheap permanent markers they have gone a long way. £5 for a pack of 20.

Pride Sheffield is this Saturday, 29th with the march ending at Endcliffe Park around 1 p.m. where there will be stalls, music, food, drink and more.
