Time Machine Sneakers

These TARDIS-Painted Sneakers Commemorate Doctor Who

— May 30, 2014 — Fashion
In the British sci-fi series Doctor Who, the space-evading Doctor is able to travel to the various galaxies of the universe by using the TARDIS phone box time machine. These Keds canvas sneakers have been creatively painted to look just like the navy blue time traveling phone box.

These upcycled sci-fi sneakers cleverly turn a pair of basic Keds into an out of this world wearable Doctor Who fashion piece. The shoes have been covered in elegant bright blue fabric paint and feature tiny white window drawings along the toe of the shoe. These windows replicate the TARDIS' phone box windows. Above them, the iconic 'Police Box - Public Call' TARDIS sign.

Show your pride for the Doctor Who series with these TARDIS-printed kicks.
