D-I-Y: Cap Toe Shoes

Tuesday, May 15, 2012
Hi Guys , its the second week of my D-I-Y Segment and today I would like to show you how to do "Cap Toe Shoes". This is one of this seasons hottest shoes trend and versions of it was introduced by Louis Vuitton in his Spring line for 2012. It is simply a color at the front of your shoes where your toes are. The colors can be dark or even neon ( depending on what you like).




You will Need :

  • A pair of patent leather ( or any other type of material) pumps or flats
  • Spray paint ( Neon , Black or Metallic or whatever you like)
  • Paint Sealer
  • Packing tape ( duct tape)
  • Old Towels/Plastic Bag / Newspaper ( anything that you can use to cover stuff)
* Be sure to set up your "work area" in a well ventilated space. Spray Paint is really strong , and it can be detrimental if you inhale the fumes*

Step 1

Tape off about 2-2 1/2 inches of the front part of your shoes. This is the part where the colour will go. Also be sure to tape the soles of your shoes as well , just so the paint won't get on it.





Step 2

Cover your shoes properly ( except for the toe area)with the old towels/newspaper or plastic bag . This is to keep paint from getting on that area.





Step 3

Spray on 2-3 coats of paint ( or your desired amount) onto the tips of the shoes. After you've done this , go over the top with the paint sealer. This is to prevent "bleeding" or chipping of the paint.








Step 4
You are done!!! Be sure to let your shoes dry properly over night.


This is a super easy and fun project that will allow you to have "new shoes" without breaking the bank. Of course , there are tons of other ways to do this. I of course chose the easiest way. I hope that i have inspired at least one person to go out and be creative. Above all , be confident :-)
