Hey there, thanx for your comments! Fabric markers will work, but in my experience with them, they do fade over time. Also, they may not give the same vibrant colour effect as paints, but that could work out really well too! In terms of water proofing, I don't think it's an issue. Either way, I think you'll achieve a unique look using the fabric marker. Post it up when you're one, would love to see how it turns out Happy

thanx Gary!
if you spray it with the special stuff, it'll make it surface waterproof, but i doubt it'll be waterproof. if you're using a canvas shoe, i would suggest you get the fabric solution for your paints, its not too expensive, and it's just a matter of pre-mixing ur paints before then, it works beautifully for t-shirts, but i've never tried it on shoes. but i can almost guarrantee your shoe will be waterproof and washable by then, hope that helps?

Hi guys, thanks for the comments. Just a few things, about those particular type of shoes in the US, i had a friend from australia go down the states and he said he couldn't find a pair anywhere but that you guys loved them, might be a market for dunlop to break into, haha. but i don't think it's available in the states.

As for the "will the shoes wash out?" i'm guessing, probably if you soak them in water or chuck them into the washing machine, but otherwise, in rain, it shouldn't since it's acryllic paints, but i'll add an extra step for potential waterproofing that i did on mine

cheers and thanx again!
