Learn More About The Shoe Drawing

Shoes are a very ordinary item. In most parts of the world, people wear them everyday to protect their feet from injury or cold. This drawing guide will show you how to easily draw a shoe or sneaker.

Shoes, however, have become much more than foot protection. Today, many people select their shoes as a decorative item, a symbol of self-expression.

Tennis shoes, also called sneakers, are among the most popular. Designed as athletic shoes, they are now worn casually as well.

The name "sneakers" was recorded as early as 1887, because the rubber sole was very quiet compared to the leather soles often used at that time.
