Do you love art as much as we do? Because this season, we’re showing our love for all things art! Whether we’re painting the Wynwood Walls in Miami or drawing murals on our shoes –  we’re expressing our individuality by taking something ordinary and turning it into something extraordinary. Follow our step by step DIY Sharpie Shoes guide to add a bit of personality to your #AEOStyle.

What you’ll need:

Canvas shoes. Try our Slip-On Sneakers!


Fine Point Sharpies (any color)

A creative mind

Step 1: Find a pair of canvas shoes that have a great surface for decorating. We recommend our Slip-On Sneakers


These Slip-On Sneakers are the perfect surface for art.

Step 2: Start outlining your design lightly with a pencil. We highly suggest starting with a pencil so you can erase any mistakes along the way!

Trace lightly the first time so it’s easier to erase any mistakes.

Step 3: Once you’ve completed your design in pencil, retrace your artwork one more time before moving over to pen.
