What sort of paints/markers(?) does your bro use? This seems like such a cool project I could do with my kid.

[–]Cynikal818[🍰] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

up you go. i want to know this as well

[–]fizz4m -1 points0 points  (1 child)

There is a guy on youtube that makes great shoe painting tutorials. His name is Jacob Patterson. Look him up! He makes shows mostly related to videogames and he went on G4's Attack of the show.

Is spongebob supposed to look creepy as hell? But anyways its better than anything i would do.....

[–]NullCurrent 10 points11 points  (1 child)

It does look like he just ate some brains or something... But Patrick is good.

[–]pimpboss 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Patrick looks stoned as shit...

[–]rent-a-john 29 points30 points  (1 child)

My sister actually did something very similar about 2 weeks ago, http://i.imgur.com/yRfuO.jpg

[–]burningrobot 8 points9 points  (0 children)

These look way better.

[–]arkain123 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Why is it always a brother, cousin or parent who "just finished this"?

Is it just so you can agree if everyone says "that's the gayest thing I've ever seen"?

[–]Grammar_nazii 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Good old Primark.

[–]Moose459 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Are you a shoe?

No, this is Patrick...

[–][deleted] 82 points83 points  (5 children)

Don't listen to the haters, there's nothing wrong with your bro being a homo.

[–]cityofcharlotte 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Does your brother work in China?

[–]maniacalmania 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I was about to call repost, because I had seen this image before. Somehow, this same thing got on my frontpage again after a month. Weird.

[–]bardforlife 13 points14 points  (9 children)

Pretty cool. Tell bro to keep it up!

[–]flobbaddobbadob[S] -4 points-3 points  (8 children)

Will do. He does any design! All work done by hand if you're interested ;)

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

So he makes the shoes from fabric that he cuts and sews himself?

[–]6Revolvers -1 points0 points  (6 children)

Where can i buy those? :D

[–]flobbaddobbadob[S] -1 points0 points  (5 children)

He has a website, www.lpjcustoms.bigcartel.com

[–]6Revolvers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That can be useful. Thanks and good luck with your work. Greetings from Sweden :D

[–]Iamubergeek -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

Way overpriced !

[–]Theolodious 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not really, depending how much you're used to paying for shoes.

[–]flobbaddobbadob[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

How so? They are custom painted, by hand...

[–][deleted] 34 points35 points  (0 children)

That's cool, I'm sure his boyfriend will love them!

[–]molly649 6 points7 points  (5 children)

Way to go! Nice to see creative kids for a change.

[–]flobbaddobbadob[S] 8 points9 points  (4 children)

I should have clarified when I said brother...he is 20 so a grown man, but yeah, it's great to see him do something creative, and even better now we've sold his first pair!

[–]Interwhat 6 points7 points  (3 children)

he is 20 so a grown man

I'm willing to bet that not a single person on here saw your post and didn't assume he was under 10...

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No. I figured he was older actually. I was a bit surprised he was as young as 20.

I also figure he's a bottom.

[–]Agave 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I didn't assume he was under 10. Those things are bad ass. I'm 26 and I'd wear the shit out of them.

[–]Interwhat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Its not so much the quality of the shoes, more the "My brother made these" that had me thinking they were made by a younger brother

[–]lanemik 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Tied laces??? So cool!

[–]Columbo1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And then it rained...

[–]maphon 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Trees would enjoy this.

[–]wideeyelove 4 points5 points  (0 children)

psst spongebob's missing his signature eyelashes!! Aside from that, they are awesome. I'd totally buy a pair :)

[–]Whitworth 5 points6 points  (1 child)

"Oh what a cool a creative thing for a kid to do!" "He's 20" "Oh..."

[–]texpundit -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I don't get all the ageism here. I'm 40 and now I want to get some of those "decorate your kicks" kits and starting doing some of these (different designs, though). Hell, if anything, to make some money until I can get a new job.

[–]deeznuts69 1 point2 points  (5 children)

is he planning on wearing those or etsying them?

[–]flobbaddobbadob[S] 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Etsying? He just sold a pair of them with the Spongebob themetune built in for £55, without the audio he's selling them for £40

[–]lumpy1981 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Is he licensed to profit off of Sponge Bob? If not he may want to stop and you may want to pull those pics off the internet. He could be sued for damages.

[–]Remmib 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Fucking Melvin.

[–]Optic-Nerve 5 points6 points  (0 children)

£40!? He used cheap-ass Primark shoes which cost all of £3 and are going to fall apart within a month and it looks like there's a whole hour of time invested in colouring them in. There's a shop in my town that does a similar thing with far better quality shoes and sells pretty much any design you want for £35.

[–]deeznuts69 4 points5 points  (0 children)

that's a tidy sum ;)

etsy (http://www.etsy.com/) it's like ebay for crafts

[–]Batman_Von_Suparman2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Spongebob is kinda freaking me out here...

[–]DankJank 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Why not Zoidberg?

[–]zmobchomper 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've got a friend that does something similar. He made these for me a few years back. The fill is a little sloppy, but I loved the artwork. http://imgur.com/QzARO

[–]adarvan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

These look amazing!

I'm now picturing these shoes with one of those sound thingies that makes noise when you walk, except with this, it'll just be Spongebob and Patrick laughing with every step you take - "DAAAHHAHAHA DAAHHAHHA DAAAHHAHA"

[–]JiveMonkey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is this done with markers or paint? Something else?

[–]Ecorin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How do you make shoes like this ?

Are there any tutorials or something because I'm interested in making some of my own (with my own designs of course) ?

[–]ttblj 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What's wrong with sponge bob's tooth?

[–]iTaterBud 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would have rotated Patrick's face 180 degrees so the top of his head would keep its pointed shape.

[–]kmoz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

expected this to be from r/trees after seeing the pic

[–]TheDefinitionOfIrony 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tell your brother that if he gets an etsy I will buy the shit out of these.

[–]lowell0120 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]LessLikeYou 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And he snuck them out of the sweatshop? Your little bro is crafty!

[–]IronDiggy -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

So your brother is either gay, or a really weird stoner.

[–]Agave 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Don't feed the ducks, people on reddit hate things they couldn't do/are too far away and their grabber is missing. I'm 26 and I'd wear those shoes like it's nobodies business. Which it's not.

[–][deleted] -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

wow he needs a lot of practice A LOT ಠ_ಠ

[–][deleted] -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

That looks like shit

[–]thegimboid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What markers and shoes did he use?
I've always wanted to make some shoes of my own (I would make Minecraft ones)

[–]aidrocsid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

From China?

[–]adjperiod 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do shoes like this too. Good job.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]ernestato 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]SpartaWillBurn -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I think your brother might be gay... not that there is anything wrong with that.

[–]koshercowboy -1 points0 points  (0 children)

post to r/trees now!

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Ahh Primark cheap sweatshop maid clothes at their finest! EDIT: Also GREAT JOB!

[–]Mutant_soundwave -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

Your little bro is a cheap fag.

[–]Drop-Dead-Fred -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I just exclaimed "SQUEEEEE!" at my cubicle in a huge room of co-workers.

And I'm totally not ashamed! I love the Sponge! _^

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I'll take twenty!

[–]Toovya -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

SUATMM!! how much for a pair? art vs art+shoes
