These were some very special sneakers for a very special person on a very special birthday. This year Adrienne celebrated her 21st birthday on the 21st of February - which makes it her Golden Birthday. Obviously with such a unique celebration, I had to come up with a just as unique gift...and freehand painted and custom-designed sneakers just happens to be what I do...so I simply put two and two together, and BOOM!
The design inspiration behind these is a collage of all of our inside jokes. Actually we had so many inside jokes that I couldn't even fit them all on the shoes, so I had to pick the funniest of the funniest. The gold color scheme is obviously in celebration of her Golden Birthday, and the white patent leather adds a little more shine. The other part of the gift was a custom built display case in which she can show off her greatest birthday gift EVER to anyone and everyone she knows.
