There may come a day where I stop painting shoes, but it is not this day! This day, I bring you awesome.
Shoe 1 (outer): Gandalf with Thorin's map, Bilbo's door, and one of my favorite Gandalf quotes.
Shoe 1 (inner): Bilbo with Sting, the Ring, and a looming Gollum
Shoe 2 (inner): My own take on Smaug (a combo of Tolkien's sketches and a crocodile) with sparkly jeweled treasure and a tiny Bilbo trying to hide from his sight
SHoe 2 (outer): Thorin Oakenshield with the Arkenstone and a partial quote from the AUJ prologue ("It was a sickness of the mind, and where sickness thrives, bad things will follow") foreshadowing BoFA.
Shoe spine: script on the One Ring
