I just started my journey into the realm of customizing shoes. I stripped them thoroughly using acetone, applied a white base coat and then 3-4 coats of the color i was using. Then i finished them with angelus high gloss finisher. The paint sticks fine, i can scratch the paint with my nail, other surfaces and it stays with no problem. After wearing them for a few days i noticed the paint was smearing from one shoe to the other. I attached some pictures, sorry the quality sucks but you should get the 'picture' of what im talking about.
