I've got a version of my own. These boots were one of the only things my mom saved from the 70s, but I've never worn them - they just don't work with me style. But I couldn't throw them away either! This was the perfect solution.

These look so terrific! Trinashere, how did you blacken your mom's boots? The local shoemaker said no when I asked him if he could die a pair of shoes for me Cry.

I just painted them with some outdoor acrylic paint, which has held up pretty nicely so far except for a few spots that rubbed off - so if you do it this way, get used to little touch ups. I even wore them in the rain! I originally went to Michael's looking for leather paint, which my husband used on a project with fantastic results a few years ago, but they didn't carry it anymore and I was too eager and impatient to wait for an online order.
