Behold my most recent creations:

Exhibit A was so unreasonably simple. Just get a can of silver spray paint, dose your shoe (for me it was my old, worn down cowboy boots) of choice and let dry. This only took me 5 minutes. Exhibit B was somewhat more tedious. I stuck just shy of 500 clear-ended thumb tacks in rows into the foamy-platform base of a pair of thrifted Steve Madden shoes. This took a couple hours but once you get into the rhythm of it, you don’t really need to think about it much.
