The one with the golden sneakers tutorial


On a recent sunday Pinterest session, I came across an awesome pair of sneakers. They were the inspiration for this tutorial. It's a pretty easy one, without lots of supplies needed. 


What you'll need:

  • A pair of sneakers with plastic toes
  • spraypaint
  • tape
  • optional, nailpolish in the same colour as your spraypaint



What you'll need to do:
Start by taping the front part of the shoes, just so that only the plastic part of the sneakers will be coloured when you start spraying them. 


Spray them, my sneakers needed three layers to cover the white up nicely.


Let them dry well, I left the tape on overnight.


And done are your coloured-toed-sneakers. For a finishing touch I added some golden nailpolish to the tips of the laces. To make them extra fancy.
