Captain America Shoes
With the recent release of The Winter Soldier I thought it was about time that I added Captain America to my Superhero Shoes collection.
I have carefully hand painted these size 10 children’s canvas shoes with acrylic paints and sealed them to be water and stain resistant.

I use spray-on Waproo Water & Stain Protector for water proofing all of my shoe customisations. I typically apply 3 layers of the spray in 4 hour intervals and then leave them for 24 hours to dry before testing them by dropping water onto the design and watching it roll off. I haven't ever tested them by submerging though, which is why my advice is generally that while the shoes are fine in a rain shower, I wouldn't recommend wading through puddles in them.
I'm sure there are other equivalent products around for waterproofing shoes and fabrics, but this is my go-to because it dries completely transparent without affecting the tone of the paint. The whites stay perfectly white =] Another product I used previously (I forget which brand, sorry) dried with a slight yellow-y tinge which left all the white painted areas as an off-white -> not ideal!
