Nifty nerds posting with groovy kitschy puppets; photo found inside Space Age Puppets and Masks by M. C. Green and B. R. H. Targett, published by Plays, Inc, 1969. (My copy, a stated First American Edition, is available.)
BlueAndRedCows knit a pair of Chucks and shares the pattern too.
Clearly, these shoes are dog approved — and not (just) for chewing.
If you also haven’t (yet) learned to knit, check out handmade knitted sneakers by Katie at Pretty Sneaky where you can find Converse Chuck Taylor high tops hand knit in many designs and patterns, including the classic pirate skull and crossbones.
Or maybe you’re more of a robot lover?
Don’t worry; if you can’t find your size, she’ll make them in your size — just for you.
Katie’s sneakers are made a bit differently; the handknit uppers are stitched over the original shoe. I’d imagine this helps the shoes keep their shape better.
No word on whether or not dogs love them just as much.
