From the shop owner:

I started my online store because I’ve always had an eye for things. I receive many questions and compliments when I dress up by friends, family or even strangers. Many people even suggested for me to open up my own store! Which is great! So I did. I get my products from different vendors, I make sure that they’re in good shape and quality.

Hand Painted Super Mario Brothers Shoes

Hand Painted Super Mario Shoes

Hand Painted Super Mario Shoes

Super Mario Bros scenes are hand-painted (and can even be customized!) all the way around these fun retro-style sneakers. Custom made to order by the extremely talented Catherine LaPointe, whose shop is full of many more shoe designs including Wonder Woman, a Radiohead album cover, famous paintings, a sunken treasure pirate scene, Michael Jackson, and more.

From the artist:

Your shoes will be made durable and lasting with fabric paint. I also spray each shoe with an acrylic coating to ensure they last. I have been wearing these shoes for years with little sign of wear. But remember, these are works of art, and treat them as such. Each shoe is hand-painted, so slight variations in the design will occur.

Let me know your size when you place your order. Price listed is when I provide the shoes. If you prefer to send me your own (new/clean) shoes, get a 20% discount!

Catherine has graciously offered readers of this blog 15% off any products in her store by using coupon code the following coupon code at checkout:
