Adrienne Williamson started Painting Converse Chuck Taylor Hi tops in 2004 when designing her clothing and accessories for her loyal buyers on eBay. These are so popular and a great gift idea for Christmas or Birthday. People ask often how long will the paint last on the shoes? and She responds usually much longer than the shoes, even with washing them in the washing machine. She can add crystals and ribbons for a really girly diva rock star design, or personalize them for boys with just the fun paintings in their favorite themes or bands, even movies!
