DIY Quote Sneakers

Once upon a time, a grandmother gave a pair of her old Ked-like sneakers to her daughter-in-law because they were too small. This daughter-in-law knew that her own daughter wore Keds 24/7, so she gave them to this daughter. This daughter wore these white sneakers for a long time. And after a while, they became dirty, like all things that stepped into mud puddles a few times too many. So this daughter thought "Hey, I should dye these sneakers grey". So she did. She also brought out her trusty ol' Sharpies. And therefore, the Quote Sneakers were born.

   These are super easy and really add a nice personal touch! They're subtle, but if someone was to look closer, it's really awesome looking!

You'll need:

-A pair of sneakers
-An ultra fine point sharpie
-a pencil *optional*

1) Choose your quotes! I'll write the ones I used down below. Make sure they aren't too long

2) Lightly pencil in your quote on the outsole of the shoes. Or, you can just write on the air above the shoe to see if your whole quote will fit. If not, choose a different one, or make your writing smaller.

3) Sharpie that.

4 Wear them, and enjoy your simple sneaks!

Quotes Used:

-Right foot sneaker:
(song lyrics)

"The dreams won't take you from your war but they can fill your heart with fright. And there's no chance to pacify if you move right to goodnight"
                                                                           -Straw Hat by the Ceremonies

-Left foot sneaker:
(Harry Potter quote)

"Words are, in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury and remedying it."
                                                   -Albus Dumbledore

     What I love most about these sneakers are how messy and unique they are. My handwriting isn't that neat, but it's who I am. And I feel that these shoes really show my personality.
