Today's DIY will be a very simple and inexpensive one, like a lot of people I fell in love with the neon Oxford shoes by Jil Sander ( you can find some similar style at Aldo or h&m) but I wanted something that I could wear to the beach or to go shopping, something comfy! So I made my own version....Hope you like it :)
Subtle changes, big difference !
Here is what you need:
1- a pair of tennis shoes
2- neon spray paint I got it in yellow but Pink would have looked so cute too
3- scotch tape (any kind)
4- plastic bag
Remove laces from shoes.
Cut the bag in a square shape and tape it all around the tennis shoe to protect the top part from paint.
protect the area you are going to work on. I simply used an old magazine...
now start painting until sole is completely covered (several light coats, will be better than a thick one)
and don't forget the laces...
let it dry, then remove tape and plastic bag and Voilà! you're done.
