How much would a pair of these cost plus shipping to Scotland? Also would they be practical to wear out and about rather than for display?

I do custom Converse.  A lot of people say they want them but my experience has been that few are willing to pay what they cost (around $200 plus shipping).  If you're serious about a pair, please let me know and we can work something out.  I'd love to do another pair of Freddy shoes.

That is a lot of $ for shoes, but I understand.

It is.  But when you break it down to materials alone, you have at least $50 for the shoes (often closer to $60 where I live), fabric paint and latex, the time it takes to get them done, plus a little room for profit... it all adds up.  But in the end you get a one-of-a-kind item.

These shoes are custom made but ready to be ordered to your own specs.  Just let me know.  They are about $300 shipping included.

Yeah, but that includes the cost of the shoe as well as materials and time.  Plus, in the end, you have a one-of-a-kind pair of shoes that no one in the entire world also has.  Beats the mass produced same ol' same ol' that they sell at Journeys.

These cost a little more than a normal pair because of the 3D skin effects.

I used some sort of Venom action figure that had a cool texture that looked like Freddy skin to make a mould and then poured liquid latex into the hold (I used simple plasticine for the mold).

When the latex dried I pre-painted it using fabric paint (it dries flexible but keeps its shine).

Then I cut the slashes into the fabric and inserted the latex, which I contact cemented into place.

Oh, and the stripes are just plain Sharpies, which I wouldn't recommend unless the shoe is for display only, otherwise use fabric paint or fabric markers.

That's pretty much it.  

Oh yeah, and then I showed them to Heather Langencamp and Robert Englund, who loved them and signed them.

I made it myself. Not only that, but I had Freddy himself, Robert Englund, sign them just this morning at Fan Expo in Toronto. He loved them. He went so far as to take out his own camera and take some pics of them. I'll post pics.

I had a plain white shoe with the black and red speckled rubber sidewall. I knew I wasn't planning to wear them so I just used Sharpies to make the red and green stripes. Then I took one of my son's Venom action figures and made a plasticine mould (the Venom goop was perfect Freddy skin). I then cast the skin in liquid latex, let it dry, and painted it. Finally, I inserted the skin into the spots where the chunks were ripped out and glued them in place. I then just stuck more latex onto the tongue cut it to shape and painted it. A few scrapes and gouges with a pair of scissors to make it look ratty and bing, bang, boom. Done! I had them signed by Heather Langencamp last year and the big man himself this year.

This shoe (there is only one of them) is in my personal collection. I had it signed by Heather Langencamp last summer and this weekend coming I'm going to see Robert Englund at a Fan Expo and have him sign it as well.

I do commissions though. Please visit www.artandsoledesigns.com to see what's what. I'm still uploading images but all the FAQ info is there. If you have further questions, feel free to e-mail at artandsole@hotmail.com.

Glad you like the design though.

Cheers.
