lanton 's thoughts:

I created my very first major DIY…shoes. You can see the before and after pic. Spray paint, studs, and I cut up a belt in order to make an ankle strap. I’m so very proud of my job and can’t wait to introduce them to the world!!!!
I’m wearing them in the main photo but you can barely see them.
Hope you guys like them!!!!

Have a great weekend in case I don’t post and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!

Lena xoxo

Nope, I just sprayed them with about 3 coats of black enamel car spray paint.

You should definitely do it!! I took a piece of leather swatch that I cut up in 2 rectangle strips. I folded it in order to make a loop while leaving extra in order to add to shoe. I used super glue to stick the ends together and to stick it to the shoe. I haven't worn them for an entire day yet so the super glue might not hold. I might have to have the loops secured better by a shoe maker.

Those shoes are killer! Wedges can be hard to walk in, so I have some wedges I would love to put straps on...how did you do it? =)
lanton
lanton on October 30
Piece of leather material that I cut up into rectangular strips. Loop them, super glue the sides together. And then super glue the loops to the shoes. They might not hold well, I haven't walked in them yet. What I might do is go see a shoemaker to fasten them better. Good lcuk with your DIY and I can't wait to see it :)
