Recover old shoes with mod podge and pictures. I LOVE the one idea about using book pages! Except I would make photocopies of them and mod podge those on. I can't destroy a book. But with comic book pieces
Create your own dip dyed shoes. You don't have to particularly use yellow dip-dye. I've tried this myself, and I dip-dyed my shoes blue and green instead. It really works! Make sure you have white shoes only, or else it won't work.
