I was inspired by the awesome shoe tutorial i saw here...
http://www.dirtyhems.com/2011/01/dirty-hems-diy-neon-sole-heels.html

And decided that i had to have a pair of neon soled pumps!

I started with these:


I've had these heels forever! If you can't tell, they are suede, with a wood finish on the bottom that was wearing off.
You can see it better in this picture:


So after sanding, priming, and painting about 5 coats, I ended up with these pretties:


let me know what you think! C&C welcomed Smiley
thanks!

That was a great idea of sprucing a pair of rather mediocre looking shoes. And pink makes me happy;)

Thanks everyone!

These shoes were so satisfying to finish, since it was simple but made a HUGE difference in how much I love them.
Glad you all seem to like them too Smiley
