you are awesome!

there is this stuff called "krud kutter" i don't know if you can get it in norway but i accidentally got some on the toe of my cons and wiped it off and they were bright shiny white again. i then put it all over the rubber and in like 5 minutes had brand new shoes!

great job

Thanks so much for the explanation and the link to that instrucables website....I am totally totally going to do this once I'm finished with school (well, that is if I have enough self-control to make myself wait that long, haha). I will def let you know how it goes!

But I had just one last question...where did you get the gromets for the shoelaces?

Those are awesome! I would love to do that, but mine have the opposite problem - the sole is broken (across the ball of my foot) but the fabric part is fine  Sad  Of course that's probably because they're cheap knockoffs.

I found the gromets at my local crafting-store  Smiley
Don't know if I really put them on the right way, but they're still stuck on the shoes, so I'm happy  Grin

I would definately love to see the result if any of you should try the same!  Cheesy
