DIY Studded Sneakers

4:42 PM

Speaking of shoes, here is a cool little DIY I found the other day. Studded shoes, or studded anything actually, has been quite popular for a while now--and I don't think the trend is going anywhere. So if you like studs like me, then this easy but cute DIY is for you. All you need is a pair of canvas shoes, glue, studs, and toothpicks! Also, if you want to try this out but don't want to experiment on an expensive pair of Vans or Keds, then you can head to Forever21 and grab a pair of canvas tennis shoes for only $6.50! I bought a pair in white but they also come in neon yellow and navy blue.

Start by squeezing a small amount of E6000(Glue) into a disposable container or onto a wooden popsicle stick. Dispensing a small amount at a time prevents the glue from drying too quickly. Using the tip of a toothpick, apply a small dollop of glue onto the back of a spike.

Press the spike into the sneaker, holding it in place for a few seconds.

Continue adding spikes along the shoe’s baseline and working upwards in horizontal lines.

Arrange the spikes, without glue, into awkward spaces before attaching them.

Glue spikes onto the heel cap, again working horizontally.

Allow the shoes to dry overnight before wearing them!
