Paint your own brogue-style canvas shoes

A smart new look for slip-ons in time for your next holiday

Fancy jazzing up fabric shoes and turning them into a fashion statement? If the answer is “yes”, you may like this brogue design. We loved this idea so much that we decided to recreate the traditional perforated pattern in violet using textile markers. You’ll soon see how easy it is to design your own individual shoes with the help of these markers. The ideal shoes for creating a unique brogue style are white or pale canvas slip-ons with a wide, plain-coloured upper. edding textile markers and textile pens come in a choice of two different line widths and 20 trendy shades, including four neon colours to enable you to create unique effects. The markers are incredibly easy to use – simply remove the cap and get started! Even novices will achieve fantastic results in next to no time.
