Here's another Totoro scene, looking good on a pair of Tom's canvas shoes. The creator in this case wasn't even familiar with the anime, but they did a great job capturing the essence of everyone's favorite little critter.

Of course there are tons of Sailor Moon shoes out there, and of course they're mostly a popping pink. These shoes go above the norm -- literally -- by having the Sailor Moon characters on the large platform of the otherwise very pink and cute shoe. They're not something anyone can wear, but if you've got the power to rock these, you deserve to.

Some Sailor Moon creations shy away from the bright pink, and wind up creating masterpieces instead. These anime shoes have a beautiful illustration which would look great on a print -- and somehow looks even better on a pair of Vans shoes.

For a more realistic Sailor Moon shoe, check out this bootlet cover. Instead of a full shoe, the cover goes over any of your own shoes, for any size heel that you choose. While perfect for a cosplay, though, these aren't exactly something you can wear all the time. Or are they..?



Pokemon
