Rainbows, on my feet.

These shoes, I must have them.

I found these shoes on Flickr, and, my god, I have to have them. I have Googled for every searchable term pertaining to their description, and the internet is epically failing me. The shoes are here and here. Can anyone help dress my feet in sheer awesomeness?!

Have you messaged the people who put up the pictures?

They look handmade. Have you tried contacting the photographer and asking?

I thought they looked handmade at first, too, but I found this close up photo. If they were, they were very very well handmade.

You could contact her via her blog. She even has her email address listed.

I followed the pictures back to the blog that the photographer maintains and others have asked the very same question, she has yet to respond. Sad face. I could make them though, if that's the case.

argh i have looked as well - it is driving me crazy. I am assume they're chuck taylors but perhaps that is wrong to begin with...

I think it's this, though they look to be sold out. The winning Google search was "Converse All-Star rainbow stripe" (first result).

With the right glue, and an approriate range of glitter, you could make your own without too much trouble.

Then when people ask you where you got those shoes so they can get some too, you'll have to give them that most hated of answers - "I made them".

From stopgap's link, the model number is 174U170082. They show up on lots of Chinese sites.

I messaged the blogger, and she confirmed that they are indeed real Converse, and that she bought them a few years ago. She said that they were only being sold for a month. Oh well! Thanks everyone.
