How to Draw Sneakers for Kids
- Draw the topline.
Do you know why sneakers wrap tightly around the ankle? This “high collar” has been designed specifically for sports to maximize the stability of the shoe during play. Draw the oblong small oval that you see in the example.
- Draw a shape.
Now you need to draw the basic shape of the sneaker, which will be visually closer.
- Draw a second topline.
Repeat the steps in the first step. The second oval should touch the first, don’t draw the second topline too far.
- Draw a second sneaker.
Now sketch out the shape of the second shoe as shown.
- Draw the soles.
Manufacturers of sneakers pay great attention to the sole. It is made of strong elastic material, which must be durable. Depending on the sport, it can be flexible or rigid, studded or cushioned. You just need to draw lines at the very bottom of the shoe that become curved at the nose of the shoe.
- Add a heel counter.
Draw a semicircle from the center of the heel to the sole. A characteristic feature in sport’s shoes is the highlighting of the heel counter with a different color or material. This part of the sneaker shoe is stiffer and stronger.
- Draw the eyelets.
On the top of the sneaker, draw rectangular shapes for the laces.
- Add laces.
Draw three laces for each shoe. Draw them at the same distance from each other.
- Color your artwork.
