Chuck Taylor Converse basketball shoes first appeared in 1910. It has been 100 years and we’re still wearing ’em.

I started by masking off all the laces and white stitching. I then did multiple layers of colors for the shoes both inside and out. Once I was satisfied with the color and contrast, I took the masking fluid off and began adding shadows to the laces to make them 3-dimensional. Finally I put shadows around the shoes.
