Bam! Pow! Now this is what I call a pair of high-impact shoes! How super fun are they?! Just goes to show how you can makeover a pair of shoes with a few simple pom poms. OK, so maybe not everyone is as in love with pom-poms as me. If you’re not super keen on the orange tights, you could tone it down with a pair of black tights (or no tights) and wear it with something neutral and let your feet do the talking!
What a super cute pair of flats! These would go so nicely with all the coloured jeans out there today, or all those sweet Summer dresses floating around the stores.
You’ve probably already see these shoes because they have been all over the DIY blogosphere right now - Pintrest, Tumblr, etc, etc! Well they are incredibly cute so you can’t blame anyone. And so easy to make too. These are the kinds of shoes you wear on a day when you’re not feeling the best - just look down at your toes and smile!
I never thought I would be sharing a DIY on making shoelaces, but these were so classy I couldn’t go past it! It’s not the easiest project in regards to sawing the brass into aglets, but you also get the fun part of choosing different cords and ribbons for the laces!
Rubi shoes has a crazy sale the other day and they had a ton of shoes for only $5 each. I went nuts and bought about 10 pairs of shoes, including a couple of pairs of loafers. But they’re a bit boring. I really love the makeover on this pair, especially the mix of chain, tassels and leather. Mine are already hot pink but there are instructions too if you need to makeover your shoes from scratch.
I know I’ve featured lots of flat makeovers but I’m going to keep posting them because I love them! Haha!
Strolling through my favourite shoe store Rubi shoes the other day (cheap, on trend, cheap) I came across a pair of shoes like this in fluro yellow. My niece Mia thought they were the coolest things in the world… they were a little too… bright for me! But black with studs, yep, I’m pretty sure I could pull those off. Also they would make excellent self defense - no one would want a kick from you wearing these babies!
This year has been a year of many changes, one of which is that I am becoming a weirdy obsessive shoes girl! It all started with a pair of black boots and just exploded from there. Now my favourite thing to do is go shoe shopping! I picked up a couple of cheap pairs of sand shoes last Saturday (they were only $8 each!) with a plan on doing something with them and then I saw this DIY and knew this would be perfect.
I recently went through my cupboard and donated a ton of shoes I’ve never worn or wore once and and never did again. But I have gone through the same pair of plain black ballet flats multiple times! I love my flats but sometimes I feel like having a fabulous pair of shoes to go with my fabulous outfit! Instead of wasting yet more money on another pair of trendy shoes I’ll get rid of, I’m going to make some shoe clips such as thisadorablepair from FPG. Inspired by a Kate Spade outfit, they certainly look like something you’d find in Kate’s store!
There’s lots of DIY makeovers of oxford shoes but they require you to acutally haveoxfords - and they can be pricey! This DIY on the other hand uses a pair of white sneakers painted to look like oxfords! So cute and so easily customised.

If you’re not following Lucille Michieli yet, I suggest you do ASAP! When I first saw these shoes I though, ooh, cute, where do you get those? Well my fellow Tumblrettes, Lucille made these! And she has a tutorial so you can make your own too! My favourite part? Those tassle cords!
Puritan Ballerina Flats | Trinkets In Bloom
Trinkets In Bloom is back with these super trendy ‘puritan’ flats ala Marc Jacobs, Chanel and Mui Mui. Oh, and they’re super easy to make too! Seriously, you can get ballet flats a dime a dozen right now at the stores so why not make a couple of pairs so your feet can be stylish no matter what you wear?!
Upcycling Vintage Shoes | Lana Red
Whether it’s a pair of vintage shoes or your own pair that need a bit of an update, what pair of shoes wouldn’t benefit from this sweet makeover? Perfect to wear with your flippy skirts or your skinny jeans! If you want to try this DIY but don’t have this kind of shoe, try eBay or even etsy for a vintage pair.
Summer Sandals | Gap & Threadless
So Gap has teamed up with Threadless to bring us tshirt based DIYs! The first project is this pair of Summer sandals that look much more difficult than they actually are! All you need are thongs, an old tshirt and a needle & thread. Perfect beach shoes just for you!
Hello! A pair of white (p)leather Keds look-alikes recently fell into my possession. And by white, I mean their whiteness burns your eyes a little bit if you look directly at them. Something needs to change. I’m considering recovering them in a more aesthetically pleasing fabric, but any other suggestions would be marvelous! Thanks!
Ahh, white shoes. The bane of the clumsy girl’s existence. There are lots of shoe makeover DIYs out there, but how to find one that you actually want to wear on your feet? Once you’re at a certain age the old puff-paint trick no longer feels very classy.
Pictured above are two great makeovers by Honestly WTF. The first pair are all about the shiny - glitter and rhinestones. The glitter cover is actually quite hard wearing and well, they’re inspired by Miu Miu so you know it’s fashionable.
If you’re not a glittery girl, then studs are a great alternative. A quick search on etsy and you will find tons of different styles - metal, coloured, big and small. If you don’t want to do the studs over the white, paint your shoes first with fabric paint.
And of course there is as you said the fabric option. Make It Love It has a great tutorial here.
Good luck - I’d love to see your final product!
