Jean Grey / Phoenix Découpage Converse Chuck Taylors
We have a lot of talented people around here, and whenever we get a chance we like to share their work with you.
These cool Chucks are the work of Angel Rodriguez, one of our shippers. Not only is Angel gifted with lightning shipping speed, she’s also got some sick wearable découpage skills. She made these Jean Grey / Phoenix shoes (and the equally cool box) for one of her coworkers.
