Rock Steady Vans by Rainemaster Rock Steady Vans by Rainemaster
For all of you No Doubt fans, you'd understand this pretty well.

Basically, being a HUGE fan of No Doubt, I wanted to buy a pair of the Rock Steady vans.

However, they are SUPER SUPER SUPER hard to find.

That being said, I decided to make my own. And they turned out AMAZING!

I LOVE THEM!

what do you mean?
the design came from their album cover....unless you designed the cover, too.

and these shoes i made myself using the cover from the album.

well, i bought a pair of plain black vans. yay.

then i made a stencil of the album cover. basically, i enlarged the album cover on the comp and then printed it on cardstock (basically thicker paper)

then, i used an xacto knife and cut out every single individual letter (this took FOREVER!!! but totally worth it!)

after i had the stencil, i filled the shoes with something to keep the fabric taut so it wouldnt fold in when im painting it.

i used just regular fabric paint and a brush, but if you can find fabric marker paints, they work well, too.

and, just by using the stencil, i painted the letters on! for the white, you might need a couple of coats, but it generally lays on pretty well.

good luck making them! it was hella fun and totally worth it!

Thanks! I hope I don't. I can always paint over my mistakes though.

And should I use Double Upper Chucks or Plain? It's tough, because the doubles are neat, and cheaper, but I would have more room with the plain for design.

BOTH! XD
lol.
well, maybe for a first try, you should try something inexpensive. i bought really cheap van-knock offs (like, from walmart or something lol).
its always good to become familiar with what youre doing that way you can make an awesome pair later :D

but, if you dont wanna, id go with Double Upper Chucks

if you know of Gwen Stefani, then you may of heard of her stuff when she was in the band.

Theyre coming out with a new album next year, so you may hear from them soon! Theyre soooo great!
