I found a great little post on Honestly WTF on how do turn your Vans into super indie kicks. I love soft pastels with a little bit of edge so these are my 'teenage dream' shoes...enjoy!
What You're Going to Need:
- 1 pair of Vans (or other plain sneakers)
- 150-200 brass spikes
- E6000 adhesive
- disposable popsicle stick or container
Step one: apply dab of adhesive onto your popsicle stick or container and use the toothpick to rub a bit on the back of a stud
Step two: strategically place the stud on your shoe and hold it there for several seconds to make sure it stays
Step three: continue your design on your shoes
Step four: arrange the spike on the top of the shoe without glue to make sure they fit nicely then glue
Step five: do the same on the heel cap
And voila! Your fresher than a peppermint indie Vans.
