I have had these shoes since I visited Spain, the summer after my junior year of college. I bought them there, but sadly haven't gotten much use out of them. They seem a little... drab. Plus, the straps are falling to pieces! I thought that a facelift might make them better fit into my wardrobe.
I bought some new straps (identical to the old), and some fabric paint. I thought a deep blue would give them a nautical touch.
On a whim, I sewed on a pair of vintage buttons to the front. I think they turned out quite cute!
I think this would be so fun to do to a pair of scuffed up Keds, or any canvas shoe, to breathe new life into them. All you need is shoes, a paint brush, and fabric paint. Can't you just imagine a cute oxford pattern painted onto a plain pair of canvas sneakers? :) Happy Monday!
