Found these terrible looking old shoes in my closet that I must have worn back in highschool to dances and whatnot, and stripped off all this gunky nasty flocking stuff to repaint em.
Cut off all the straps and put on some new ones, so now they wrap up around the leg.  Also re-did the soles so they fit my high arches with nice fleece-y comfort ^^

Pictures! I'll try and take better ones, but my camera is pretty much on it's last legs. It refuses to focus :/ Nor does my room have good lighting.



terribly dark bleh

Wow, those are really neat looking.  Those are really neat and a good way to recycle.  I love how you were able to make new straps and arches, I love cherry blossoms, the ones you painted are beautiful.  Pretty creative!

I've actually worn them a couple times with a brown summer dress and they got a lot of compliments, so I really need to try and get a picture with them on in natural light.
I'm trolling thrift stores for more shoes to paint now lol.
