Or, "they don't make like like they used to". That's how I started it anyway.
I "deconstructed" the pattern of the shoe by making a small ink drawing inspired by its look. Placed the lonely shoe on the drawing as to protect itself by mimicking the surrounding; a classic method of survival.
Crop, turn B&W of the already almost B&W image, invert, reduce contrast a notch, sharpen a tiny bit.
