Great shoe! Heh, heh. Is there really a shoe company called simple? All I buy is Chuck Taylors and yes I'm getting a kick back.

Glad your shoes are not kicking back at you - that would be uncomfortable and complicated ;-)

Lovely drawing - I like the character of the shoe it has a nice smile!

Shane: Don't know the cost. A few yrars ago, after seeing a pair of Simple 'boarder runners (sneakers to you Americans and trainers to you Brits) that I liked I ended up buying something similar in Nikes because Simples were too wide for my feet. A shame. I do like the company's philosophy/attitude.

I have a pair of Simple shoes that I wore quite a bit during my fat foot pregnancy days. This one is much nicer than the ones I have. Great illustration!

Such a commonplace item.
Such a simple black and white rendering.
But so graphic, so real.
You are good!

Never heard of 'Simples', but that doesn't mean anything; I buy all my shoes (except my running shoes) at Payless Shoesource.

Cool art. Such great style in black and white.

In SA, we don't call them sneakers, but rather refer to them as "Tekkies" pronounced as "tackies".
Yeah, we speak a strange dialect of English... :)
