First off, I found a fantastic tutorial by icandyhandmade that shows you how to remake shoe insoles. While I did not follow this method, it seems to be a great starting point if you are interested in re-doing your insoles.
Secondly, I revamped a pair of shoes. I made them glittery. I have a bunch of preparation pictures up to the point where I actually started glitterizing (suuure, its a word) them.
|Hole in the toe! Oh no~|
At that point, I alternated between spray adhesive and glitter, letting the shoe dry about 2 hours between coats. I did around 3 coats.
I did a test run with them at school yesterday, and they fared fairly well. The toe area (with the hole that I was trying to cover and hence save the shoes) fell off. I think I will add a coat of clear acrylic spray after I fix these.
My mission is to do a second pair in black glitter, and possibly a third in gold. Maybe heels?
I fixed these insoles as well.
Have you ever modified shoes?
