The new handmade trade these days are hand painted shoes. While some people enjoy the look of clean-cut shoes others might be more interested in acquiring something with more personality. Paint can actually create a visually appealing design, incorporating a variety of colors and shapes to create an original pair of shoes.
The most frequent hand painted shoes that you can find online are sneakers. But beware! You have to have a great sense of humor if you want wear them :) : "It all starts with a good shoe" - says Rhonda Savage on her about shop page. I would ad: Here is definitely a good painted shoe.

The shoe painted market has pieces for all tastes. Ladies are therefore not left out from this trend. Liudmila Rosario Ponko thought of everything when she painted high heels shoes. They don't have a comic design as the sneaker do. The artist rather preferred the patterns.
You don't need an umbrella for these Lollytout shoes. They have one of their own. And the sense of humor is not left behind. Full of personality shoes I might say.
