Cute shoes!

Wal-Mart has some soft rubber Dr.Scholls-style shoes for $2.50, they are very comfy.  I may buy another pair to decorate.

I love those! You did an awesome job. Smiley I have a pair of old Dr. Scholl's of my mom's that are red. I was thinking maybe I could paint them black and white checkered on the soles. Thanks for the inspiration.  Grin

your shoes look really great! excellent craftsmanship on all the perfect edges.

it seems funny that somebody commented on the originals being overpriced after seeing the multi-day procedure that went into making another pair. for someone who didn't like fussing with clean lines and masking, i could see it being worth $165 to save the trouble!

Thanks!  I totally agree with you on the price. I think $165 is a fair price for them given all the labor involved. In fact, I would probably charge more for them! Smiley  A friend of mine did the rhinestone encrusted ones (see below), but she did them in red with red rhinestones. She said the first shoe took her the longest, but all in all it was about 8 hours in front of the TV with 800 rhinestones, tweezers and gem-tac! and she covered the entire strap (not like the sample where they stopped) and put a sequined cherry on the heel. They came out SWEET!

Great shoes - i just painted a pair and sealed them with glossy polyurethane.  They are sticky.  Is the Polycrylic by Minwax?  I'm going to sand mine lightly and try the polycrylic but wanted to make sure I have the right product.  Thanks for sharing you success

$165 for polka dot shoes? maybe if you painted the Mona Lisa on them! Good luck!

I just sold a pair for $175, so clearly there's a market!

It's Polycrylic by Minwax, clear semigloss. It's in a teal colored can.  Hope this helps!

Awesome!  My friend does this for herself and friends and I've told here she should sell them!

Hey Andi,
those are SWEEEET!  Yes, tell your friend to sell them.  Of course here in LA people will pay you gobs of money for things, but I'm sure she could still get some serious cash for them.
