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
- The scuffed or ripped shoes
- 1x minipack of sugru, or more if you want to colour match an exact shade
- Dry tissue paper
Step 2: Opening and colour mixing the sugru
If you want to colour mix this is your opportunity: check out our colour mixing guide at sugru.com! I've set myself the challenge of mixing this hot pink: white and a little red will make the pink, but it is a warm shade so I might also add a splodge of yellow.
For colour mixing it is easier to start with the lightest shade and slowly add in the darker colours. I have begun by kneading a small blob of red into the white, and added a little more until it looks similar to the shoe colour. Finally I mixed in a tiny piece of yellow - the colours are almost identical!
As always, if the sugru is sticking to your fingers then give them a wipe with toilet paper which get rid of any sugru residue :)
