We bought these shoes in a charity shop for £1.50 !!!! a quick hack later and they look super cute!
Did you know that sugru:
- bonds to most materials (including rubbers and fabric so you can customise or fix the fabric too !)
- is waterproof so will be fine in the rain and even a washing machine
- is flexible so will bend with your shoes
- can be mixed to to create custom colours
Step 1: Get Your Sugru
To chose a colour, use the colour guide in the 7 steps booklet included with your sugru. This peach colour was a mix of 50% orange and 50% white.
To mix the colours, just knead the sugru in your fingers until the sugru is fully blended. You might like a marbling effect, if so, stop kneading whenever you like how your sugru looks :)
TOP TIP: While mixing sugru, it will get quite sticky, don't worry, use dry tissue paper to clean the sugru from your fingers.
Step 2: Add to Your Shoe
Push the sugru all over the toe cap then gently rub it to get a good surface finish.
Remember, if your fingers get sticky, just give them a quick wipe with dry tissue paper.
Step 3: Smooth and Dry
Leave to cure overnight.
TIP: Use soapy water when rubbing to get a super smooth finish!
Step 4: Customise!
Have fun :)
