Dye your shoes

Everyone wants some new shoes once in a whileThe problem is that you probably already have a lot of shoes standing in your closet and it would be a shame to just throw them all away. You can donate them, but you would have to buy some new ones. Shoes are pretty expensive so looking for an alternative would be better. There is something you can do to get new shoes without actually buying new shoes. In this article, you will read how to get your shoes to a whole new level. 

Acrylic leather paint is a great way to make your shoes look as new. Painting your shoes will make them look like a whole new pair. There are plenty of colors to choose from. You do have to make sure you apply the paint the right way. There are a few steps you have to follow to make sure the leather will take the paint. Before you even paint anything, you have to make sure the shoes are as clean as possible. You will do this using a degreaser. After that you will have to decide what kind of paint you are going to use for your shoes. Finding out what kind of leather your shoes are, is an important step in this process. If your shoes are suede, you will have to use suede dye. Dying suede won’t work any different in preparation. After you prepped the shoes, it’s time to paint. You are going to want to tape down some of the edges where you don’t want any paint. Once it’s there, it’s there. Paint the shoes in thin layers and let these layers dry completely in between painting.  

A different, easier thing to do is buy some new shoe laces in a funky color.
