DIY Style: Make New Shoes Out Of Your Old Ones

By: Nina Carbone / November 4, 2009

In today’s shoe revamp news, we bring you two genius, DIY ways to jazz up your tired, old shoes. (Yesterday, we talked about boot add-ons, FYI.) The first DIY option seems a little hipster-y to me, but it’s way adorable: Turn your Keds (remember those?) or similar sneaks into saddle shoes. Just be sure to buy fabric paint; you wouldn’t want a rainstorm to wash away all of your hard work! And the second I’m really into, mostly because I have a pair of cowboy boots eating up space in my overstuffed closet: Just chop off the top part of the boot. Check out the finished products, above. Got any more for us? [Undeclared Panache]
