Step 1: Pick out your logo.

Okay You now need to find a logo that you would like on the side of your shoe. I chose the famous Gears of War logo. You can choose whatever you want though, it would probably be best if it was circle form though.

Step 2: Remove the old logo.

Okay you got you old Chucks out, now you need to remove that boring old Converse All-Star logo. I kept trying different ideas on how to do this.

I Tried:
-Scraping it off
-Paint thinner
-And Painting over it

In the end i painted over it with white paint. This worked the best. Do not worry about this comming off, i will tell you how to prevent it later.

Step 3: Color it up!

You now have a white circle. Now you need to put your logo on it! I did this by useing Bic-permant markers. But you could paint it or what ever you want . Don't worry that it might wash off, well fix that in the next step

Step 4: Clear Coat!

Okay now that you have your amazing design, you need to make it last. To make it last you need to clear coat it. (you can get clear coat for like 4 bucks at any hardware store). Now tape al around the circle and spray it with 1-2 coats letting it dry in between.

Step 5: Done!

Remove tape and inspect. If you are satisfied then your done! If not satisfied...sorry! Im not sure if you can remove clear coat!

I wonder if you could do this by printing and gluing the logo, as well (I know I'd mess it up if I tried drawing whatever I wanted).
