Oh my goodness!  I had bought a pair of vintage platform shoes off ebay, and they are vinyl and when I got them, the fabric was deteriorating and gummy.  I peeled off all the vinyl, so there is just a fuzzy fabric left.  I am going to try covering them in the glitter, like you all have done.  I made a pair of mary janes, and used silicone and it just looked too thick. 
I will try maybe fabric glue - will Twice As Tacky Glue work?  Should I tyr a spray adhesive instead? 
And can I just use clear acrylic spray paint or should I use something different?
I would hate to botch these, they are so cool.

i would love to make some of these but then i'd want to wear them EVERYDAY and they wouldn't last very long.

or would they?

well i would sugest the stongest glue you can get or tacky glue i just used elmers when i made mine and all the glitter came off the first time i wore them and was pretty depressing ...but there fixed now and holding up pretty well... and the glitter is just regular red glitter i got at hobby lobby

make it the latest trend, then abandon it, and start a new one, make it an over heated sewing machine at 3 a.m make it transform a pile of scrap fabric into a next level handbag. Make it sparkle. make it somthing you will call a statement, but youll just call another random tuesday

I have thought about doing this several times, but I never thought that they would last anywhere close to this long.  You've just made up my mind for me. Smiley

Beautiful! I like yours better than the inspiration! (It's the little bows. They're too adorable.)

for what it's worth, I'd recommend investing in a clear drying flexible fabric glue. Aileene's makes a good one. it's only $3 or $4 and thats what I used for my sneakers-- they're holding up excellently now. I did like 4 or 5 coats, and I did have to rebreak them in .. but they look sooooooo good still =]
