Every sneaker silhouette has to start somewhere. Most likely, a pencil-sketched design by somebody much more skilled and talented than you or I. But now, thanks to the illustrators over at Differantly Studios, we can all have a go at drawing some of the world's most iconic shoes.

Drawn using only one line and without the pen leaving the paper, the two French artists behind the studio have distilled the Stan Smith, Air Jordan, Reebok Classic and many more to their most essential elements. Their distinctive profiles driving home the point that they have remained popular throughout the years thanks to their simplicity.

So check out the designs above, pick up a pencil, and give it a go for yourself.
