Come an' ride the train!!

All aboard!!

My brother's friends, Mike and April, have a little boy name Mikey. He's turning 3 next month and my brother wanted to get him some customs :)

My birthday is in March too, so birthday kicks always seem like a good idea! Anything for a fellow Pisces! haha.

These velcro Stan Smiths are Thomas the Train themed, because little Mikey is apparently a huge fan :) The sneakers have Thomas, his name, Mikey's name, and a train track design. They're fun and I think Mikey will like them. Mikey's mom, April, doesn't want to see the finished sneakers until Mikey opens them up on his birthday. Hopefully she'll be pleasantly surprised. Happy early birthday!!

Dragon are cool...or should I say HOT!

Makana is Hillary's eldest kid. A few weeks back I did sneakers for her other 2 kids. So now the whole gang is set! This is my first "kid pack" set of sneakers, so that's pretty cool. Mahalo!

Hillary told me that Makana is into dragons, so these Stan Smiths have red and orange dragons, a fire-breathing dragon, a tribal dragon, and his name. I added some red laces to top it off.

I'm sending these off to Hawaii later this week.
Hopefully we'll go 3 for 3 with these ones :)

Reesey Cupcake with a Cherry on Top

This pair of little sneakers is for Reesey, Hillary's other daughter. Reesey's big sister got the High School Musical joints, shown in the previous post, but these Cupcake kicks are all hers!

The baby velcro Stan Smiths have just a hint of pink on the tongue label, back heel and bottom to add to the cupcake designs. Colorful cupcakes and sprinkles take up most of the sides with "Reesey" on the outside of one sneaker, and a wisk and oven mit added to the inside of the other.

Like it says on one of the sides, these sneakers are definitely "YUM!" - lol.

This freshly baked pair and the HSM pair are getting shipped to Hawaii in a few days, so
hopefully the girls enjoy their new sneakers! ALOHA!


A while back, my brother's friend Hillary asked me to do some sneakers for her daughters. This first pair is for Belle :)

Belle LOVES High School Musical and Troy Bolton! These Stan Smiths are the perfect color scheme to go with the HSM theme. They are the same sneakers used for the "Little Einsteins" pair I did right before Christmas, but this is lace-up versus velcro.

The sneakers have a "school spirit" vibe which all the High School Musical movies have. For one shoe, the East High mascot, the Wildcat is on one side with "Belle" on the other. The other shoe has "I Love Troy" with hearts and "HSM' with a streamer-like design. Both sneakers have little stars on the back heel sportin' the #14 which is Troy's basketball number.

Go Wildcats!
