How to give your old shoe a complete makeover

Tips to transform your old shoes

Every girl has not one, but a multiple numbers of shoes, that are her favourite and over time, they worn-out and it is time to throw them away or give them to the maid. Most of the shoes are disposed without giving a second thought, but there are some, which we do not want to throw, but they have to be disposed, as they cannot be used in their present state of condition and also because of the space. Some of these old shoes can still be worn, provided you work on them.


Here we are going to give you a few tips that will help your old shoe look new again.

Paint the shoe: One of the easiest ways to transform your shoe is by painting them. It is also the most pocket-friendly way of transforming your shoe. You can paint the shoe in any colour you want and give it a brand new look. Leather shoes are the easiest to paint and you can obtain shoe polish from any of the shoe stores. The only thing you have to remember is that there are separate polishes for suede and nubuck.

Take it to the shoemaker:  If you are having problems of sizing, then the best way to deal with it is by giving the shoe to the shoemaker. They can do anything with your shoe. They can alter the width of the shoe or give it a new insole. They can make almost every change which you want in the shoe. If the shoe is worn out they can fix that too.

Decorate the shoe: The best way to make your old shoes look glamorous is by decorating them. You can instantly transform the shoe by adding glitter and things such as beads among other decorations. In a way, you have to show your imagination when it comes to decorating your shoe.


New Heels:  If the heels of the shoes are worn out greatly, then you have an option of adding new heels altogether. You can take your shoe to the cobbler and he will add a new heel to the shoe. This will also give you an opportunity to get the heels according to your choice and comfort.
