i painted my shoes.  just with regular old acrylic craft paint, using masking tape to keep my lines straight.  it took about four or five coats to get it just right.  but i sure do like how it came out and it only cost me $1.97.  a little bit proud of myself.  i had thought about taking photos of it for a cute DIY post, but really, i'm not very careful in my preparations or in my execution.  i didn't want to lead you all astray when perhaps there's a better way to do this.  but i will say that if you have a pair of sad and drab shoes laying around the house, you should totally paint them.
and while i'm giving all this sage advice, don't wear a velour top on an 80 degree day in a car with no a/c.  even though it's really cute, you will sweat like a beast.

Love the painted shoes! I've used acrylic paint to revamp two pairs of shoes, and I love them even more now! Lol, velour and 80 degrees certainly don't go great together, but you look cute :-).
