Enjoyed it while it lasted...

 
I went to buy a new pair of exercise shoes last week. The shopkeeper asked me to walk on a threadmill and afterwards, showed me how I walked on video. He recommended a pair with the right support. I must say that the new pair has been good.

This pair had served me well, and is now replaced. I have drawn it a few times before. The coloured one on the left is drawn a while ago, and the above ink drawing is a recent and last drawing.

Shoes are fun to draw. I will get around to drawing the new pair soonish...

 

Here is another pair which I had to throw out recently... It was falling apart when I was in China. Since it was my only pair of sandals while travelling, I had to find a replacement pair...

I found this pair of Crocs at the hotel shop... Before that I swore that I'd never wear Crocs beacuse they look so cartoon-like. But they are so comfortable. Cartoon-like or not, I love them. I love comfy shoes. I don't like the look of Birkenstock sandals, but I hear that they are very comfortable. Maybe I'll check them out...

Happy Weekend.

GReat shoes! I've never looked at shoes like this before, as a pleasure to draw them that is. You do it so great.

Evelyn, I love your shoe sketches! There is so much energy in your new runners and your old sandals. They look like they're getting ready to make a move!

It's so good to see another shoe enthusiast like me. Love your shoes. Isn't it interesting that active wear shoes are the most fun to draw? I think it's because they have the most life.

Wonderful. Love your style!

OMG I'm sitting here wearing the same crocs! I also swore never to wear a pair of those neon coloured ugly shoes. But now I own 3 pairs of the sandals and have travelled to Hawaii, England, Scotaland, Greece and Turky in the last year wearing them!!
My husband is also in love with his and wear them all the time as well.

OMG I'm missing out! I've got to get a pair of neon colored crocs. Here I thought I had all the shoes I needed. How silly of me.

Evelyn said...

@ Jake: LOL, those are great shoes. I saw a pair on someone which is not bad, this is it : here. Sadly, they are no longer in the stores or maybe I have to look harder!

@Linda: LOL, they are ugly... but well worth it I think!
