The girls each with their own ideas to share, drew and painted out of inspiration.

"It's a high top on the inside.  It has graffiti and it's either music or rhythm and it starts off with a bright colors like yellow," said Rafaela Ioera.

Sophie Henrie added, "I like doing sunsets and stuff, it has desert and stuff and cactus 'cause Arizona has a lot of cactus."

"I always like the idea of a hand painting something, so I was trying to think of something that worked with nature and I came up with butterflies everyone likes butterflies," said Reidhead.

The shoes are just amazing and you can vote through midnight Monday.  The winner will be announced Tuesday morning.  On the web site, just select southwest.
