I took the liberty of checkerboard lacing them because I am an adult!
Thank you, RawrG. :D I can't believe how cute they are and I know it's cheesy but they make me really happy. I think they're going to be my Thinking Shoes.... Like, when I'm trying to write a story or a song, or paint, or play my bass or violin, these'll be my go to shoes! (I know that's incredibly dorky but I give no shits.) XD
