DIY Fashion


Last night I decided to do some late night spray painting.
It’s not really what you think, although that’s a lot of fun too. I have some oldish Nike’s from who knows when that definitely had that grunge look. While I do want to stock up on some new kicks (maybe when I get to go to the Nike employee store *hint hint* *cough cough* *wink wink*) I thought I’d coat these oldies in a fresh layer of paint, or two. I had originally planned a black and gold design but after seeing the shine pick up on the pleather parts I knew I had to go all in.

The paint I used I talked about in my previous blog post, Valspar brand– and I can’t wait to use this for my other non-shoe projects in the future. I didn’t think to take a before pic of the shoes because they were a bluish/greyish/white-ish– so anywho, here are a few of the afters! I’m still trying to decide if I should spray the bottom white like the new Nike Air Max in the photo below. I might just have to try them out as is first…
