Kid's shoes are forever being scuffed, beaten and battered, and a lot of the time the rest of the shoes are perfectly fine! Extend the life of your kid's shoes with this easy project by filling holes or weak areas.

Sugru is awesome:

- It sticks to most materials including textile, material and some plastics
- It is flexible when cured so is ideal for shoes
- You can create any colour or shade that you like to match your material exactly

Sugru is available from our online shop.

*Note that sugru will wear away pretty quickly if used on the soles. However it is perfect for edges and the exterior :)

Step 1: What you need

You will need:

- The scuffed or ripped shoes
- 1x minipack of sugru, or more if you want to colour match an exact shade
- Scissors
- Dry tissue paper
