They are so old and worn that they mold to your foot just right. You could be lost in the desert and still trust that your feet are safe! (besides the little holes that might let in some sand)
Well I have a pair of shoes that I have loved for almost 9 years now. They are pretty trashed. They have holes and the rubber on the inside is torn out...not to mention that they smell kinda bad.
I felt the urge to try and give them a much needed face lift.
So I started to think about the very "GREEN" and super popular way of doing so:
So the brain storm began. What do I do to my old faithful shoes?
Well I LOVE PANDA'S
Rubber inside is falling out...I drew on the toes with sharpie like a million years ago.
HAHA notice the baby foot :) And the Huge hole in the side!
I think this is a great way to take your eye off the old issue.
My My these shoes sure did age well! Don't you think?
Inspiration?! Oh well that would be the little cute wooden earrings you see here.
I don't know about you but I am digging the set!

They have added me as one of their lucky Mommy Preneur's
These shoes were not easy for me...I was struggling with a princess theme.
I am hoping to try again. I will be practicing on the princess feel. They did turn out cute though.
On the other hand...I was in LOVE with these little cuties! I guess I was just in a Yo Ho kinda mood!
Something about the cheerful way they turned out just made me smile.
To each their own right!
KEEP YOUR EYE OUT FOR MORE UPCYCLED SHOES.
