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.

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.

I've seen this becoming a new craZe online. I have to admit very earnestly, that I'm completely smitten with it. My teen years were the Punk/Goth 80s time frame, and we always made our own clothes. I always loved the the bottom portions of Cowboy boots (as my teen daughter says, you love old style wizard shoes) but never really loved the western part of it. This gives way to so many great ideas. Brilliant job.
