Here's a relatively cheap and awesome DIY project to turn your shoes into galaxy shoes!

To begin, here are the materials you will need:
Cheap Black Canvas Shoes ($10 at Walmart)
Paint of different and fun colors, the more vibrant the better
Paintbrushes, sponges, anything to paint with
Water in a cup
something to cover up your surroundings and a towel for cleaning
Masking tape or painters tape

Optional: Mod Podge (Helps to seal in paint but is NOT waterproof)
Waterproof Sealant Spray -so water won't wash away your hard work
Paint Palette -You can use a paper plate or something else but this is very helpful
Glitter Paint- This added a nice touch and makes the stars sparkle!

Step 1: Cover up

Wrap the white parts of your shoe with either masking or painter's tape. It will come out much cleaner in the end!

These are great! I wanted to get some shoes like this, but if I can make them, it will save tones of money, and I can do exactly what I want! I'm going to add a TARDIS on mine..... ;)
Same! i wanted doctor who shoes and i am going to write TARDIS in Gallifreyan on it! ^_^

my Nike deGrasse Tysons :) thanks for the 'table, it was fun! I mixed some glow paint with the paint for the galaxies, they don't glow a lot but I'm eager to see them under a blacklight

Awesome job - I love footwear that isn't mass-designer.
