Id been eying some retro spacey boots for a couple months, and one night randomly found them on Ebay. In my size. For $10. You know what happened next. As it turns out, metallic gold puffy boots are a little too subtle for me, so I had to modify.



The next step was to cover the gold-colored suede and rubber. I used spray paint, which turned out pretty good. Surprisingly, the now silver-and-gold boots still felt a little boring, so I added some rainbow and sequin trim.


There was no point in stopping here, so I also sewed some rhinestones where the tag used to be.


These boots are comfortable, very warm, and now totally bad ass. Definitely worthy for the playa, and they might even be the tipping point for getting me to venture to snowy climes this winter! I wore them to a Burning Man party this weekend and they were perfect. And I have to admit that now I want a pair in every juicy color.

It's like Napoleon Dynamite traveled to the land of Carebears. I love it. An action shot would be prime so I can imagine myself wearing them and flying. They look like they have the power of flight!
